BACK TO SCHOOL – WHY CPD IS IMPORTANT
The leaves are starting to turn, the shoe polish is out, and the rucksacks are packed.
Employment
CHRISTMAS CONDUCT IN THE WORKPLACE
As decorations start to adorn desks, and people begin to make plans for team festivities, we thought we would take the time to touch on a few points that are maybe more important at this time of the year more so than any other.
Employment
LEADING THE WAY IN FLEXIBLE WORKING AND GOING INTERNATIONAL
Anyone who knows me professionally will be aware that I am a massive advocate of flexible working. And not in the ‘fill in a form, jump through hoops for 3 months to have one pre-determined day a week to work from home’ kind of way.
Employment
THE IMPORTANCE OF JOB DESCRIPTIONS IN 2019
Recruitment has changed a lot over the past few years, and reaching candidates is a whole new ball game. As an agency, we have certainly noticed a change in tides from candidates coming to us, to us having to search out the candidates.
Employment
HIRING THE RIGHT PERSON, NOT JUST THE FIRST AVAILABLE
We are honest and upfront with our clients and regularly reiterate the importance of finding the right fit for the firm, rather than going with the first square peg that can be somewhat moulded to fit the round hole.
Employment
USING A RECRUITMENT AGENCY – WHY YOU SHOULD, AND WHY YOU SHOULDN’T
Many candidates have misconceptions about recruitment agencies – that we are perhaps focused on the client’s needs rather than yours, that we don’t have access to all jobs or that we might try to push you into a role that isn’t the right fit for you.

Testimonials

Kay
Within 2 weeks of getting in touch with Alison, she helped me secure a role. She has been very helpful and prompt. I was able to reach Alison as and when I needed it. Thank you, Alison, for all your effort!
Keely Harris
Matt was fantastic in helping me find a position. Extremely friendly and supportive which is really key when going through this process. He impressed on me to feel free to ask any questions at any time during the process and when I did I received a quick and friendly response. I would not hesitate to recommend Matt and am grateful for his encouragement throughout the process.
Charley Davis
I would highly recommend Matt at LR Legal, he has been absolutely fantastic. Matt is very professional in his knowledge and wisdom but also gives such a personal approach and really makes you feel like he is on your side and has your best interests! I'm lucky to have found Matt and have recommended him to all my friends!
Jo Worth
I was lucky enough to speak to Alison Banks regarding a new role and, whilst I wasn't successful in securing that role, I have since used the positive comments and guidance provided by Alison to secure a new role in a different sector. I would thoroughly recommend Alison and LR Legal to anyone. They are professional, well informed and I felt fully prepared and supported throughout the interview process.

Josh
I contacted LR Legal through a mutual contact I had on LinkedIn. I received a response the same day and was put in touch with Alice Neal. First contact was over the phone which was informative and managed my expectations. Within 24 hours, Alice had got me two opportunities to which applications were submitted. From start to finish, the process from contact with Alice to being offered the job was 2 weeks. Alice was available to take my calls even out of office hours and worked with a high level of discretion which was necessary.
Lisa
Alice Neal recently assisted me with finding my next step in my career, she was very helpful and went the extra mile even keeping in touch during her annual leave!
