The top 3 benefits of using a legal recruitment agency

Having come from a legal background myself, I already had a basic understanding of the benefits of using a recruiter to help me in my job search.

I had used BCL Legal on 2 occasions when I had found myself at a cross roads in my career and I was on both occasions impressed by how quickly fantastic opportunities were presented to me as possible next steps in my career. However, having now been a Consultant at BCL Legal for just over 2 months, my eyes have been opened to the amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to find the perfect role for a candidate.

Moving jobs can be a very big decision and it’s therefore, in my opinion, imperative to seek consultative advice from recruitment consultant who is an expert in their field.  

So, what are the top 3 benefits of using a recruitment consultant in your job search?


1. It saves you a considerable amount of time!

When speaking with a recruitment consultant, gone are the days of spending hours searching for a suitable vacancy and then spending even longer filling out long (time consuming) job applications. At BCL Legal we manage the whole application process on your behalf from start to finish.  We make the initial application on your behalf; manage the whole interview process through to negotiating your salary and benefits package. This therefore saves you a considerable amount of time!

2. We are experts at what we do!

All of the consultants at BCL Legal are experts in their market and sectors. Years have been spent building strong relationships with top law firms and this helps us find the perfect job match for you.  We have invaluable additional information about firms that won’t be included in a typical job specification. We have a thorough understanding of the roles that we are recruiting for and this therefor helps us provide you, the candidate, with as much information as possible from the outset to help you make the best next step in your career.

3. It avoids awkward conversations with your soon-to-be employer!

One of the main benefits of using a recruitment consultant, in my opinion, is that we are able to negotiate your salary and benefits package on your behalf. This avoids awkward conversations with your soon to be employer surrounding the financials side of your job hunt.
