Would you like to attract quality candidates and match them to positions with an established, vast and prestigious client base?

Do you enjoy building positive relationships in order to gain a better understanding of your clients' recruitment needs and requirements?


Here at BCL Legal we like to do things differently, and our people and values are at the heart of our culture. We’re all about the 'win win’.

Don't just take our word for it - take a look at our reviews on Glassdoor, Indeed and Google!

Established in 2003 we’re a specialist legal recruitment consultancy working with private practice law firms and in-house legal teams throughout the UK.

Initially launched in Manchester, our success has allowed us to expand; with additional offices in Birmingham and London.

Due to expansion we're looking for several recruitment consultants to join us across all of our divisions at our Birmingham city centre office at present. We have numerous desks on offer!

- To reiterate, this is not a cold calling environment
