Delving into a job search can feel like a massive step into the unknown. Trust me, I’ve been there!

Just a quick google search can throw up hundreds of roles, which on the face of it, look very similar. Working with a recruitment consultant who has specific knowledge and understanding of the legal market in your area can enhance your job search ten fold. How are you supposed to decipher between these roles? How can you best tailor your CV to help you application? How big is the team that you’re applying to be a part of? What salary is on offer and is it in line with market rate? These are all questions that the consultants at BCL Legal can help you with. Getting that initial interview can sometimes feel like an uphill battle and can be a long and time consuming process.
