Conveyancing Legal Recruitment Consultant - Manchester city centre


HAVE YOU EVER CONSIDERED A CAREER IN LEGAL RECRUITMENT? Over 60% of our recruitment consultants come from a legal background.

We have currently have three specialist conveyancing recruitment desks on offer due to expansion across our personal legal services division in Manchester.

A career in legal recruitment allows you to leverage the value of your experience in the legal profession, whilst also opening up a new and exciting career path.

For most of our consultants who come from a legal background, they wanted a career that provided:

Better earnings - A good recruiter earns more than a good lawyer! We offer highly competitive basic salaries (up to £28,000) alongside an uncapped bonus scheme.

*In year one on target earning potential is between £38,000-£43,000.*

More opportunity to develop business and lead client relationships- Our clients will look to you to consult with them, devise and deliver a solution and similarly, you’ll work intimately with lawyer candidates and help them to make moves that advance their careers and/or meet particular personal needs.

Greater variety- You might find yourself consulting with a major law firm with plans to 'Northshore’ its operations; a Big 4 Accountancy firm looking to grow its Legal services; a FTSE 250 company looking for a new Head of Legal; or, a smaller firm needing to make a critical appointment that’s pivotal to its succession planning. Every day is different in recruitment.

More autonomy- We work in lateral markets - you would focus on a specific geographical location allowing you to become a specialist in your own right.

A better work/life balance- We encourage a good work life balance. Our standard working hours are: Monday-Thursday 9am-6pm and Friday 9am-5.30pm. Whilst this is a full time role, once you are on-board and bedded in, we are open to the idea of flexible working.

Culture- The Manchester team is one with a particularly strong sense of unity and camaraderie - it's a positive, professional, energising place to work! We work in a fantastic modern office setting - it’s an open plan, collaborative and thriving environment.

Transparent progression- Over 20% of our team members were promoted last year, some within their first 12 months with us!


- Over 60% of our recruitment consultants come from a legal background. You’ll be in very good company and safe hands!

- We can offer you a warm desk. This is not a cold calling environment. You understand the legal profession, so our job is to help harness the innate skills you have and apply them in legal recruitment.

- We take our responsibility to you seriously

- You’ll be given in-depth training and weekly coaching and feedback from your manager

- You’ll be provided with a mentor and buddy (most likely a former lawyer)

- You’ll be given all the necessary tools, tech and process to pave the way to your success

We appreciate it’s a big change to make, but no matter where you are in the decision-making process, talk to us!

We’ll provide you with honest advice and further research materials to ensure you make the right decision for you.


In addition we offer a host of other benefits, to include:

- Holidays - 26 days per year annual leave (increases with service, plus potential to buy additional days)

- Group pension plan
