Ten-Percent Legal Recruitment have been assisting solicitors firms with the recruitment of legal secretaries for over 15 years. We have a specialist secretary recruitment consultant, Pete Gresty CertRP MIRP handles legal secretary vacancies across the UK for law firms of all shapes and sizes.
One of the problems with recruiting good, experienced legal secretaries is where to advertise the post. In the local press? In the Law Society Gazette? What if you place the advert in the local press and get no quality applicants? It can be a complete waste of money to advertise and get applications from candidates working as hairdressers or shop assistants.
We are a small and friendly company based in London and Chester. Not only do we work with legal secretaries, but also we handle paralegal roles, PA and administrative positions (all permanent) and all the other experienced support staff working in law firms.
Our company was established in 2000 and our directors have a very hands-on approach to recruitment. Pete Gresty has good connections to a range of solicitors firms and is always happy to discuss career prospects in confidence.
It is very often a fallacy that legal secretaries are easy to find – yes, there are certainly plenty of inexperienced secretaries out there who will apply for legal secretary vacancies, but very few quality and experienced secretaries up to the task. Even in times of economic downturn good quality candidates are hard to find amongst the huge numbers of jobseekers flooding into the market.
We go to great lengths to control the quality of the candidates we refer on to our clients. After all it would be easy to send over a mass of CVs and hope for the best.
A lot of our business comes from word of mouth – law firms have heard of us and also know the service Pete will offer them. It will save time, effort and cost in both advertising and recruitment.
