Legal Recruitment Consultant - City of London

Negotiable salary with uncapped commission

Established in 2003 BCL Legal is a specialist legal recruitment consultancy working with private practice law firms and in-house legal teams throughout the UK. Initially launched in Manchester, our market leading success has allowed us to expand; with additional offices in Birmingham and London. We're recognised as a 'Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For' - for three years running - 2016, 2017 and 2018.

As a Legal Recruitment Consultant, you are responsible for attracting quality candidates and matching them to positions with our vast and prestigious client base. You'll build positive relationships in order to gain a better understanding of your clients' recruitment needs and requirements. At present we have a relatively small (but very successful) team of legal recruitment consultants in London, the challenge now is to build a team to replicate the market position we enjoy outside of London.

What We Can Offer:

We have been recognised as one of the "Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For" for 2016, 2017 and 2018. Here are some of the reasons why you should apply for this position:
· This is an opportunity to get in at the ground level with a market leading recruitment consultancy and play a pivotal role in establishing a London permanent team - with that comes financial reward and room for career progression. If that sort of prospect excites you, then we'd love to hear from you.
· We have an exceptionally strong brand which helps us to attract the best candidates and clients. We are superbly represented on the PSLs of numerous leading national law firms which have London offices. Additionally, our London team of legal recruitment consultants already work with leading City firms as preferred suppliers.
· We invest heavily in superb systems, tech and processes which allows our consultants to succeed.
· As such, you will have a very solid foundation from which you can grow your business.
· We can structure a highly competitive remuneration package which rewards performance. Our bonus scheme is open and transparent - no Quarter end guess work.
· We have a strong Central Services team which will allow you to service clients and candidates quickly and efficiently, allowing you to focus on growing the business.
· We have a culture where you will be treated like an adult, given time to develop your niche and be supported and developed as a professional legal recruitment consultant.
· We've got superb City offices in EC2 and we can offer season ticket loans.

Who We Are Looking For:

We are interested in hearing from either experienced lawyers or recruitment consultants for this role. If you are a lawyer who is "done with the Law" but who still wants to be able to leverage your legal training/education and experience we can provide a superb option for a second career as a legal recruitment consultant. We'd also love to hear from recruiters with a minimum of a year's experience in white - collar recruitment. You'll have the intellectual credibility to deal with City lawyers (which means you will be educated to degree level). In either case, you will have the will and desire to help build a recruitment business to replicate what we have in the North and Midlands and to challenge the established players in the London market.
