Legal Recruitment Consultant (Associate) - London ARE YOU A SOLICITOR, LEGAL EXECUTIVE OR PARALEGAL? Have you reached a point in your career where you’re unsure whether the law’s for you? Maybe you’re a trainee and realising this already…? IF SO, HAVE YOU CONSIDERED A CAREER IN LEGAL RECRUITMENT? A career in legal recruitment allows you to leverage the value of your experience in the legal profession, whilst also opening up a new and exciting career path. And that’s exactly what we can offer you - a fresh start in an environment better suited to your skills and aspirations. For most of our consultants who come from a legal background, they wanted a career that provided: Better earnings - A good recruiter earns more than a good lawyer! We offer highly competitive basic salaries alongside an uncapped bonus scheme. More opportunity to develop business and lead client relationships- Our clients will look to you to consult with them, devise and deliver a solution and similarly, you’ll work intimately with lawyer candidates and help them to make moves that advance their careers and/or meet particular personal needs. Greater variety- You might find yourself consulting with a major law firm with plans to 'Northshore’ its operations; a Big 4 Accountancy firm looking to grow its Legal services; a FTSE 250 company looking for a new Head of Legal; or, a smaller firm needing to make a critical appointment that’s pivotal to its succession planning. Every day is different in recruitment. More autonomy- We work in lateral markets - you would focus on a specific geographical location allowing you to become a specialist in your own right. A better work/life balance- We encourage a good work life balance. Our standard working hours are: Monday-Thursday 9am-6pm and Friday 9am-5.30pm. Whilst this is a full time role, once you are on-board and bedded in, we are open to the idea of flexible working. Culture- The BCL team is one with a particularly strong sense of unity and camaraderie - it's a positive, professional, energising place to work! We work in a fantastic modern office setting - it’s an open plan, collaborative and thriving environment. Transparent progression- Over 20% of our team members were promoted last year, some within their first 12 months with us! WHY BCL LEGAL? - Over 60% of our recruitment consultants come from a legal background. You’ll be in very good company and safe hands! - This is not a cold calling environment. You understand the legal profession, so our job is to help harness the innate skills you have and apply them in legal recruitment. - We take our responsibility to you seriously - You’ll be given in-depth training and weekly coaching and feedback from your manager - You’ll be provided with a mentor and buddy (most likely a former lawyer) - You’ll be given all the necessary tools, tech and process to pave the way to your success We appreciate it’s a big change to make, but no matter where you are in the decision-making process, talk to us! We’ll provide you with honest advice and further research materials to ensure you make the right decision for you. BENEFITS In addition we offer a host of other benefits, to include: - Holidays - 26 days per year annual leave (increases with service, plus potential to buy additional days) - Group pension plan - Westfield health plan (plus voluntary private medical cover at a reduced rate) - Death in service - Season ticket loans - Cycle to work scheme - Employee referral scheme WHAT TO DO NEXT If this sounds like the right opportunity for you, please apply now.
