The legal market, like any other, has recently undergone a great deal of change as both individuals and employers have looked for ways to adapt and survive in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. Today, finding a new role, or attracting the best candidates, is more time consuming than ever. However, working with specialists such as 2i Recruit provides an opportunity to make the process more cost-effective, whilst also ensuring a high-quality service resulting in the best candidates being sourced for your business.
Why use 2i Recruit?
Both the legal market and the processes used for recruitment have become increasingly complex over the past 12 months. When you’re looking to make your next legal talent hire, it makes sense to work with expert recruiters who understand the market, the challenges that COVID-19 has introduced to recruitment and how to ensure that you get the results that you’re looking for. Below are just some of the benefits of working with a recruiter such as 2i Recruit for your next legal talent hire.
- Access to a very broad network of talent: Great recruitment firms work hard to maintain networks of talented candidates who are actively looking for work. This can make the process of finding the right people much easier and means that many of the earlier vetting stages are already complete without the need for your firm to take this on as an additional task.
- Passive candidate resources: Specialist firms like 2i Recruit maintain large passive candidate databases. These are individuals who may not currently be actively looking for a new role but who are open to being approached about jobs that meet certain criteria. Passive candidates are not generally accessible via any other channel but they can be a key resource in terms of finding the best people. You’re not just choosing from those people who have reached out for a new position, but those who are potentially interested too.
- The expertise to make a great match: With an in-depth understanding of the legal market, as well as the candidates that are currently working within it, 2i Recruit can bring genuine expertise to the recruitment process. This not only removes many of the pain points of hiring for firms but also increases the chances that the match between business and candidate will be fruitful for both.
- A much more cost-effective approach: Recruitment is expensive and can take fee earners and management away from other more value-adding work. Partnering with a firm like 2i Recruit helps to reduce the time burden on your people and improve the cost-effective nature of the process. This is especially so when it comes to navigating the new landscape of hiring during COVID-19.
