Our Promise to Candidates
We work for you
You are our client. We work in your best interests, not our own and not those of the businesses we introduce you to. They pay our fee but you are our client. We make that position clear to anyone we introduce you to.
We will help you understand your options.
We will discuss your career so far and ascertain your skills and experience. We will listen to what you say. We will talk about your long term and short term objectives. Having done that we will advise you on what your realistic options are. If these do not match what you want we will advise you on what you need to do to gain the skills and experience required.
We will introduce you to everyone you want.
We will introduce you to all of the places we agree between us can potentially take you in the direction you want to go. We can deal with any firm whether we already know them or not.
We will commit to you.
We will set out in writing what we can do for you and what you can expect of us. In return we ask you to commit to us and be open in your dealings with us as we will be with you. We will be professional and deal with you confidentially. You are in control of the process at all times.
How Can We Help You?
“I am happy where I am and seem to be moving forwards.”
We can help you verify that. We can discuss and agree what you want to achieve and by when.
We can tell you what is realistic and what is not.
We can identify the skills and experience you need and whether you have them.
If not we can help you get them.
“I don’t want to move anywhere else but I know that I am not getting on here like I should be.”
Together we can work out what the problem is.
We will tell you whether it can be fixed. If it can we can help you get the tools you need.
If it cannot then you have a decision to make.
“Things are not what they should be and maybe its time to think about looking elsewhere.”
We can help you understand what you have to offer. We can establish what you want to achieve and by when. We can look at the market and advise you on what you could consider that could move you forwards.
Having agreed the people you want to talk to we approach them professionally and confidentially.
Throughout the process we are working for you.
We work with you to identify the right roles to fit you.
We take the time to understand you, your achievements and your goals. Its not just about legal jobs. Its about building legal careers.
We have a long term view of the world – we would never suggest moving jobs unless we thought that it was the best thing for you as a person and your career. That’s why our focus is on building real relationships with our candidates and the businesses we work with so that we can become trusted advisors rather than clinical recruiters.
