The historic recruitment model to recruit staff has been either to appoint recruitment agents to find suitable staff or to advertise for staff in trade publications.
Recruitment firms generally provide a pro-active service and act as an intermediary between the employer and candidate. In good times the recruitment firm can expect to receive commission in the region of a third of the employee’s first year salary. Such high commission fees have provided a significant barrier and hurdle for early stage companies in recruiting staff and therefore have potentially restricted the growth of many companies.

Both legal firms and specialist law recruiters are tuning into the power of LinkedIn to find prime law candidates and to find out more about their applicants, so are you ready to get spotted? This cheat sheet contains a number of specialised tips and tricks to help you get noticed and tick the recruiter’s boxes.
