You will support and drive the end-to-end recruitment process for new hires to the Firm, with an initial early focus on sourcing new legal staff.

This is a front-facing role where you would take primary responsibility for promoting their brand as an ambitious, entrepreneurial and very collaborative law firm to prospective candidates, agencies and third parties (including through direct sourcing on occasions). This role will appeal to a commercial, client services focussed individual with solid prior experience in professional services recruitment, (either in-house or from an agency background), and who is looking to progress their career in candidate attraction and talent acquisition and keen to make a positive difference to our business.

· Conducting initial screening telephone calls with candidates and providing feedback to the business accordingly.

· Providing up-to-date advice and guidance on recruitment legislation and best practice.

· Working alongside other recruitment team members to coordinate onboarding pre-employment checks including the management of any visa/ work permits (as needed), and new joiner inductions.

· Work closely with the Resourcing manager as needed to identify and then implement improvements to the existing recruitment processes at the firm.

· Assist in recruitment activities to promote diversity and inclusion. Act as a champion for the D&I agenda when recruiting.

· Assist with wider recruitment project work.
