Legal jobs and Compliance jobs listings

The majority of our work is conducted on a confidential, exclusively retained search basis. However, due to our relationships and position in the market, we are regularly asked to share adverts on behalf of a broad range of law firms, financial institutions and companies, which is a service we are happy to provide free of charge. We also feel that providing a selection of legal jobs and compliance jobs is a useful indicator of which areas are in demand, helping our candidates to get a snapshot of the current legal recruitment and compliance recruitment markets, before talking to one of our expert advisors.
