For those of you who don't frequent (or manage to keep up with) the Main Discussion board, I'm a former lawyer who now works in Legal Recruitment.

We are looking for someone who is maybe thinking about doing paralegal work pre training contract or hasn't yet secured a training contract. We are also open to anyone who may be deciding not to go full tilt into the law after having done the GDL/LPC.

We regularly take on people at this level to work as support to the legal teams who are recruiting lawyers into private practice and in-house roles. Pay is commensurate to paralegal pay and has the potential to be more if you're good at bringing candidates in. You'll also get an unparalleled insight into law firms that it's virtually impossible to get from working as a lawyer and has proved to be really useful for people who have worked these roles previously in terms of navigating their training contracts and qualification options.

Add to that it's a really fun job and a really collegiate working environment and it's a great alternative to paralegal work.

If you'd like to find out more or just have a chat, drop me a line at
