New Year New Job

It has been another exciting year in the job market, with promising signs that the UK’s economic recovery is really beginning to run up a head of steam.

Within the legal market, we have seen a surge in movement this year at firms of solicitors throughout South Yorkshire, with the creation of new jobs prevalent at all levels.

For me, this is evidence that companies have regained confidence in the strength of the market. Thus, there has been a spike in demand for skilled, experienced and talented candidates in our region.

This is fantastic news, not only for existing job seekers, but for people who are currently in a role but have been considering making a move to further their career.

I have sensed a feeling of general apprehension and hesitation in recent times, as confidence in the market from a job seeker’s perspective was not what it once was.


This meant that people may had been put off taking the leap into the making that exciting new move. But things have changed for the better, as confidence in prospects has positively spiked.

As the recruitment calendar draws to a close for 2014, it would be wise to remember that the market buzzes back into life as soon as January hits, as companies race to snap up the hottest talent around. 

I am predicting a frenetic first few months of the New Year, so now really is a fantastic opportunity to make yourself known to the marketplace and get a head start on the competition.

Here at CRA Consulting, we specialise in recruiting for the legal sector and have our finger on the pulse of the market throughout Sheffield and South Yorkshire.

If you are considering a career move, you can speak to one of CRA’s specialist consultants on 0114 2418030 or email us at 

We can provide an insight into market conditions and discuss any options within our exceptionally vibrant client base.

Here’s to a fantastic 2014 – and to kicking off the New Year with an exciting new career opportunity!
