If you're interested in finding a job in the legal world, but you don't want to be a lawyer legal recruitment may be a good pathway.
Legal staff are needed in finance departments, IT, administrative support, and paralegal positions: you may work as part of a larger law firm, or you may be assisting the in-house legal counsel at a larger corporation, or possibly you'll work at a boutique firm that specializes in one aspect of law or another.
The legal industry requires a rigid attention to detail, as well as honesty, integrity, and accessibility, so only certain candidates are a "good fit":
If you are an employee, define if you're seeking contract, temporary, part-time, or fulltime work. Then get an up-to-date resume, list of qualifications, and your past references in one place.
- If you are an employer, consider the roles and responsibilites of the position you need, and use a legal recruiter to help you navigate through the interview and selection process.
Having a caring, competent, and knowledgeable person on your team is key: with a legal recruiter you can narrow down the work involved and find targeted positions, or qualified candidates, in less time.
