Our legal recruitment team places legal practitioners on both an interim and permanent basis across the full breadth of the Handle Recruitment client base.

We have candidates at every career stage – from paralegals, newly qualified legal and business affairs executives, right through to general counsels.  The legal practitioners we place have the character required to excel, as well as the proficiency.

While many of our candidates will have trained at a widely-respected global practice, they’re just as likely to have started out in a boutique or a local firm or have trained in-house.

With a keen eye on the quality of training, we also have a profound understanding of the importance of personality, and take both into account when matching candidate with a client to guarantee the right fit.​
