Legal Recruitment Consultant
Legal Recruitment Consultant - Birmingham
Negotiable basic salary with uncapped commission, clear attainable path for progression
Established in 2003 BCL Legal is a specialist legal recruitment consultancy working with private practice law firms and in-house legal teams throughout the UK. Initially launched in Manchester, our success has allowed us to expand; with offices in Birmingham and London. We're recognised as a 'Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For' - for three years running - 2016, 2017 and 2018.
As a legal recruitment consultant, you are responsible for attracting quality candidates and matching them to positions with our vast and prestigious client base. You'll build positive relationships in order to gain a better understanding of your clients' recruitment needs and requirements. Many of our consultants are former solicitors that have sought a change in direction.
What We Can Offer:
?? The Birmingham team is the largest legal recruiter in the region, one with a particularly strong sense of unity and camaraderie - it's a positive and energising place to work for both experienced recruiters and lawyers that have left the law.
?? We offer excellent basic salaries and a generous, uncapped bonus scheme.
?? BCL Legal is a market leader in legal recruitment in the regions; in Birmingham we enjoy an enviable position on PSLs for all of the Midlands and South of England's Top 200 UK Law Firms, we have a client list which is the envy of our competitors. This is not a cold call environment.
?? We have been recognised as one of the "Sunday Times Best 100 Small Companies to Work For" for the last three years - a testament to our training, coaching and culture.
?? We invest in technology and so give our legal recruitment consultants a superb platform from which they can excel. Our database, and the leverage it provides, is second to none.
?? We provide cutting edge training and a culture within which you can develop professionally and personally. We support your transition into your new role and promote from within - over 20% of our team members were promoted last year.
?? Once you are on board and bedded in, we are very open to agile working and have many examples of consultants that work flexible hours and/or work from home.
Who We Are Looking For:
We are open minded as to your background, but we are keen to hear from current recruitment consultants (temporary or permanent recruitment experience) with professional services sector experience. Legal recruitment experience is not essential.
We are also very interested to hear from lawyers (senior Paralegal, CILEX or Solicitor) looking for a change of direction. Many of our staff in Birmingham are legally trained.
Educated to degree level, you will have the confidence and ability to build relationships with lawyers as both candidates and clients. Whilst we do provide an exceptional platform on which to build your business, you will have an appetite for business development. You will possess an outgoing personality, be team oriented and have a strong work ethic.
