Legal Recruitment Consultant - Birmingham city centre
Here at BCL Legal we like to do things differently, and our people and values are at the heart of our culture.
Established in 2003, we're a specialist legal recruitment consultancy working with private practice law firms and in-house legal teams throughout the UK.
We have offices in Manchester, Birmingham and London. Our head count is steadily growing! Could you be our next hire?

- We offer market leading basic salaries at Associate level (£23,000-£28,000). OTE potential is between £35,000-£40,000 in Y1.
- We offer an uncapped bonus scheme and a 'Super Bonus' scheme based on annual billings.
- New consultants come in to the business on a phased ramp up target. The majority of our consultants bill in their 2nd/3rd month with us.
- Last year the whole team took off for a long weekend at a 5 star resort in Palma. This year we're booked in for a luxury weekend in Barcelona!
- Career progression at BCL is completely transparent and based on personal billings targets.
WAYS OF WORKING
- We're very proud of how we do things at BCL. Take a look at our employee, candidate and client reviews on Glassdoor, Indeed and Google!
- This is not a cold calling environment. Whilst an element of business development is part of any recruitment role, we're a market leader with a delivery focused approach.
- We enjoy an enviably strong presence on preferred agency supplier lists (PSLs).
- We work in lateral markets - you would focus on a specific geographical location allowing you to become the specialist 'go to' recruiter in your patch.
- We heavily invest in technology and provide you with cutting edge training and development.
CULTURE & ENVIRONMENT
