What can I do as a newly qualified solicitor if I don’t want to practice?
Recruitment may just be the answer.
Have you recently qualified and are now thinking that becoming a solicitor isn’t exactly what you dreamt it would be?
You do have options. Legal recruitment will give you the opportunity to utilise your legal knowledge, build relationships with law firms, assist your peers in their career ambitions, whilst not compromising your own.
It takes a long time to qualify and the skills you’ve gained are hugely transferable to work in legal recruitment. We work in niche areas like lawyers like lawyers do. Many of our most successful consultants are non-practising solicitors or lawyers who have trained with recognised, national practices as well as boutique, regional law firms. Our former real estate lawyers now recruit real estate lawyers into jobs, our former conveyancers recruit lawyers into residential property roles, always ensuring they recruit the best teams for their clients.
At BCL Legal we provide an excellent platform to take on a key role in the market you service. The business has been built over years of hard work, providing you with the foundations to move into a team working with major UK law firms or in-house legal departments. Many of our consultants have either worked in recruitment before, or previously been a lawyer and chosen to move to BCL Legal to start a new and rewarding career in legal recruitment. We are looking for people with a legal background with the commercial acumen, drive and motivation to pursue a new career within this exciting sector.
As well as years spent developing relationships with our clients and candidates, we provide full team support and a structure to develop and progress your career. We are a forward thinking business with a progressive marketing and PR function, easy access Cloud computing system for remote access, dedicated in-house training and amazing quarterly and annual incentives. Our unique ‘Stepping Stones’ program offers complete transparency in career progression. Former lawyers love the idea of being master of their own destiny and the ability to earn more money based on the efforts they put in. For someone looking for an entrepreneurial business to take their career to the next level, we can give you everything to become a success in your chosen market.
We are currently expanding our private practice teams with the opportunity to work alongside colleagues servicing existing clients’ needs nationally. As a key member of the team you will work with a loyal client base, taking over established relationships including local, national and international law firms.
