WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

Our team features ex-lawyers and a two-time Olympian, for a start. We are focused entirely on associates, and placing them into roles that will take their careers to the next level.  Associates are the unsung heroes of firms both local and global, and it’s time that they had a recruitment firm working with and for them alone.

We will meet you for a coffee or a drink to discuss your career at a time and location that suits you.  We are not trying to make your days any more complicated.  Our job is to give you better choices by helping you find a role that fits, supports, and helps you move forward to fulfil your career goals. Finding the right role isn’t an exact science; we can only do our job well if we really know our candidates, what they’re looking for, and why. This is part and parcel of our Career Watch service.

CAREER WATCH

We want to be with our associates for the duration of their careers, whether their ambition is to become partner, go in house, or move abroad. Really knowing our candidates allows us immediately to identify target roles for them the moment a new vacancy opens. We don’t batch-submit CVs to HR. HR departments like working with us because we only send them the right CVs. That comes from knowing and investing in our candidates, not just glancing at their LinkedIn profiles.

We take a consultative, knowledge-driven, and friendly approach.  Meeting with us won’t feel like an interview, or like work.  We only offer advice when it is called for and we will only contact you about roles that are appropriate and relevant to your practised area and specialisation. Having practiced law, we know what your days are like and we are genuinely here to help. We understand the hours associates work, so we’re available for after hours phone calls and early morning meetings.  We’ll do what it takes to take you where you want to go. We look forward to meeting you, and helping you find the role you deserve.
