Working with Legal People

Building and maintaining strong relationships with our clients is paramount to our business so our ethical and honest approach to recruitment means that we will only submit candidates that fit your brief. Our consultants are not tasked with KPIs so are always respectful when maintaining relationships with clients.

An extensive candidate database (in excess of 20,000 candidates), industry knowledge and networks mean that we are a constant source of quality talent. Less than 20% of the candidates we recruit for our clients come from job board advertising. We use our extensive networks and referral base to source the best talent.

Whether you have a specific recruitment need or are interested in top talent that is on the market, we can assist you.

Specialising in the provision of high calibre legal staff to corporations, agencies and boutique practices through to large national and international law firms, Legal People assists clients with their professional, lawyer and support staff appointments on a permanent, temporary or contract basis. For many years, Legal People has also provided advice in relation to practice merger/acquisition(s), strategic business and succession planning.

Our experience and in-depth market knowledge of the legal industry is second to none. Combined, our consultancy team has over 80 years of legal recruitment expertise. We also have affiliated offices in Sydney, Brisbane, New Zealand, Middle East and the United Kingdom. This enables the servicing of national clients as well as having access to candidates before they move from interstate or overseas.

In addition to our own extensive network and referral base developed over 40 years, Legal People are also members of the NPA, the worldwide recruiting network, connecting independent global recruiting firms together, giving our clients and candidates even greater reach and connectivity. All NPA member firms go through strict quality and reference checking procedures and are governed by a code of ethics and confidentiality measures.

Recruiting for staff can be very time and labour intensive. By partnering with Legal People you utilise our expertise and take away the time consuming aspects of recruitment such as:

  • providing advice and assistance with preparing job descriptions;
  • writing job advertisements;
  • answering telephone queries;
  • screening unsuitable resumes;
  • initial interviewing;
  • skills testing (where required);
  • providing you with comprehensive resumes and evaluations;
  • conducting reference checking;
  • managing offers and negotiating salary; and
  • negotiating notice periods and commencement.

We can provide you with a short-list of fully vetted, appropriate candidates, leaving you time to concentrate on your business. We focus on finding you candidates that meet the skill set you desire and also fit with the culture of your business.

Our consultants are also always available to provide you with up to date market information on remuneration packages and market conditions in sourcing legal talent.
