Locum and Permanent Staff
Permanent or Locum jobs?
We help law firms on a variety of legal assignments in many areas, usually because there is an increase in work or because someone is leaving the company.
If you are looking for new staff, do think about the key skills you need, and appreciate that it can take some time to find the right employee. You could consider taking on a fixed term contractor or a locum during the recruitment process.
We have a reliable portfolio of locums in all legal sectors, and Debra Tofts is our dedicated recruitment consultant in this area. Locums will cover any form of absenteeism or support on increase in workload. We often find busy times are around bank holidays and in the summer and locums do get booked up quickly for these busy periods.
Many firms retain the same locums for repeat assignments covering Partners or Senior Solicitors during the holiday season. Our clients find this solution gives them reassurance that the work is being dealt with professionally, it is cost effective and provides a continuity of caseload. We always ask our locums to provide employers with their practising certificates so that legal firms can satisfy their insurance company requirements.
Locums are prepared to travel long distances and stay away from home if the assignment is for a few months or just a few days, so if you are planning for the future, or have an immediate requirement, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 01279 464455 and Debra will find you the legal cover you need.
Smaller legal practices change, the shareholders may fall out or owners retire and we can assist with an exit strategy. We have undertaken a number of merger discussions and we make it our business to know which law firms that are organically growing through acquisition. If you wish to consider this avenue of discussion and appreciate there will be a process of declaring company accounts and providing staff and client information for the due diligence process, we will happily meet with you to discuss some options.
Call our offices on 01279 464455 and speak to Debra or Kingsley.
