You may be considering talking to a legal recruiter for a number of reasons and making a career move can be a daunting experience. Sometimes making a move is not your choice and could be down to your personal circumstances or work events or it could be something that you are planning for the future. Either way, you need to find a professional recruiter that will consult properly about your career aims. It doesn’t cost you anything as recruiters are paid by the client so take your time to consult properly and use the professional advice as appropriate.
Once you have found a recruiter that you are confident dealing with then give them the information to enable them to represent you properly in the market place. When the relationship is working well you will hopefully benefit from the good advice given and also feel able to question any advice or get any second opinions as appropriate. Dialogue is important and do make sure that you know exactly which recruiter is dealing with what and which firms your details are being or have been sent out to. Naturally, if you don’t feel you are being represented properly by the recruiter then you can always choose to disinstruct them.
Do take in to account that sometimes Law Firms can take time to respond to recruiters and many will only respond if they are actually interested in a candidate. Good recruitment consultants will want to place you in the right job as quickly as possible and to this end will be in regular contact with clients to make approaches, chase down CVs, follow up for interviews and any feedback and also deal with the negotiations on remuneration. But, this is the role of a good recruiter and should allow you to compare the market efficiently and see what is realistically available for you.
So in a nutshell investing some time in finding the right recruiter can save you a great deal of your time. Pick up the phone and see what we can offer you.
