Recruitment and Selection Agency Legal

The Recruitment & Selection of a good Lawyer or Legal Assistant requires craftsmanship. Employment Services has built up this craftsmanship over more than 40 years. This means that Employment Services as a Recruitment & Selection agency has the knowledge, experience, and network to successfully fill both interim and permanent legal vacancies. 

If you have a vacant position and are looking for a Lawyer, please contact Employment Services. Employment Services has been a specialist in the field of Recruitment & Selection in the legal discipline since 1976 and we have a wealth of experience with regard to the Recruitment & Selection of Lawyers and Legal Assistants. 

What should you focus on when recruiting and selecting a lawyer or legal assistant?
The most important thing for the Recruitment & Selection of a Lawyer or Legal Assistant is to get a clear picture of the legal expertise and/or legal specialism you are looking for. Your wishes and needs are key. Do you need legal knowledge in the fields of general law, contract law, labour law, property law, tenancy law or is it about privacy and/or intellectual property? Every Lawyer has their own specialism. Sometimes a Lawyer combines a number of (usually no more than two) specialisms.

Recruitment & Selection of a Lawyer or Legal Assistant, why choose Employment Services?
The feedback we receive from our clients is that Employment Services consultants know how to create a good match between the Legal vacant position and the candidate on the basis of the required specific knowledge. At the same time, Employment Services also matches personality. The Lawyer fits the culture of the organisation where the legal job vacancy is posted in terms of personality. Employment Services is specialised in this field. At Employment Services, the Recruitment & Selection process for a specific job vacancy is always conducted by two consultants. This distinguishes Employment Services from other agencies and the great advantage of this is that knowledge is shared in the best possible way and the search power is much stronger. 

How does Employment Services handle a Recruitment & Selection process?
The process always starts with an extensive fact-finding interview. As a result of its many years of experience, Employment Services elects to market job vacancies with a proactive approach by combining network search, file search and executive search ('headhunting'). Legal candidates are approached personally and with enthusiasm. The consultants of Employment Services are aware that they act as our client's advanced business card in the search. The consultants approach the candidates carefully and in an appropriate manner. From experience Employment Services knows how to strike the right note with candidates by converting the extensive fact finding into relevant information for candidates. As a result, candidates experience Employment Services as a reliable partner who actually shows that they know the client and the Legal job vacancy. 

When can Employment Services feel satisfied?
Of course, Employment Services is only satisfied when our client is satisfied with the result. The result in this case is a good Lawyer or Legal assistant who fills the Legal job vacancy and will still be working there after one year. We also want our client to feel satisfied with how Employment Services has conducted the process. This involves speed, communication and coordination. After each Recruitment & Selection process, an evaluation is carried out and the goal of Employment Services is to score at least 8 out of 10 for the result and the process.

What are the costs for the Recruitment & Selection of a Lawyer or Legal Assistant?
The costs for the Recruitment & Selection services are always well agreed in advance. Employment Services communicates about this transparently and clearly. As a rule, the fee is based on a percentage of the candidate's gross fixed annual salary. Interim Lawyers and Legal staff pay a surcharge on the hourly rate of the interim manager to Employment Services. The amount of the fee is determined by the complexity of the vacant position and the number of job vacancies that the client has engaged Employment Services to fill.
