The legal jobs market is picking up!
Confidence has returned to the market and for the first time in months our recruiters’ skills are being put to the test as quality candidates are scarce for the number of vacancies to fill. Our consultants are constantly finding alternative techniques to discover bespoke candidates for hard to fill roles. One area which is particularly testing is residential and commercial property (the problem being firms are struggling to find strong candidates because so many practitioners left the sector during the economic downturn).
Never the less the change is most definitely a great sign for those in the legal industry and we can thank the healing economy, a greater access to debt financing and a returning appetite for corporate deal-making for all having an impact.
