We specialise in placing legal, compliance and company secretarial professionals into commerce & industry sectors on a permanent, contract and interim basis.
Our expertise spans over a decade in this area.
We partner with organisations ranging from FTSE 100,
US multinationals and national businesses to start-ups,
as well as charitable institutions.
The commerce and industry sector is vast and diverse. Each organisation has a specific culture and individual requirements, so the role of a legal professional varies significantly depending on the sector, organisation, legal structure and commercial requirements of a business.
When it comes to recruitment, there is no ‘one size fits all’ approach and a combination of multiple factors make a successful long-term recruit. Organisations are increasingly bringing legal professionals in-house rather than relying on external support. In-house legal teams are cost-effective and, by being integrated in to the organisation, can provide bespoke legal advice.
An in-house legal professional must be commercially aware and be able to juggle the competing demands of the business they support.
From a legal professional’s perspective, working in-house has never been more exciting.
The in-house legal professional remains the technical legal expert, but as businesses adapt in order to stay ahead, they must develop, up-skill and re-skill in different areas of law and regulation to effectively support the business through a changing economic and regulatory landscape.
