How We Work

In order to deliver what we promise, the most talented and hard-to-find senior legal professionals, we have to implement a recruitment strategy that’s different to what you may be familiar with.

Our process combined with our lengthy experience in the industry and existing networks has been ensuring our success for over 15 years.

Headhunting is a sensitive activity, especially for the client, which is why we prioritise transparency, confidentiality and discretion from start to finish and we’re very well practised in doing so.

You’ll have 24/7 access to your project via your laptop or tablet through our bespoke online client portal and we’ll never reveal your name when we approach candidates with your opportunity – this allows us to headhunt from your competitors.

Although we are experts in the legal sector with the existing networks and contacts typical of a specialist headhunter, we actually use a whole-of-market approach to headhunting. In layman’s terms, this further increases our candidate pool as we are able to use the extensive resources at our disposal to also source candidates for your business from different industries and sectors.

How headhunting works.

Our 6-8 week process is broken down here:

  • Assignment brief completed 100%
