The search for new legal employment is time consuming and stressful. Whether you are seeking new challenges, wanting to relocate, or unhappy in your current position, it can be difficult to balance the demands of work with the time and discretion required to conduct a thorough job search.
Eliminating law firms that look good on paper but do not offer best the salary or advancement opportunities is difficult when you don’t have insider information. What you need is someone who knows the London legal employment market and has done the search for you.
Over the last 16 years, Mandaus Legal Recruitment Services has done just that. We know the legal community and have developed relationships with many top-tier London firms. We find the best for the best and stand ready to place you in the perfect solicitor job.
Your Partner for Success
As a Mandaus candidate, your application will be held in the strictest confidence. We will listen to your goals, values and needs to find the right placement.
The process begins when you contact us and identify:
- Where you want to work;
- The salary you wish to make;
- The characteristics of your ideal position; and
- Other factors that are important to you.
Using this information, we will begin the search process and support you by:
- Assisting you in updating your CV;
- Preparing you for interviews; and
- Negotiating your salary.
You will be paired with the firm that best meets your short and long term needs. In fact, 69% of the solicitors we placed are with the same firm after 10 years.
Your education, skills and experience are assets you bring to an employer and you need to find a placement where you are valued. For this reason, we are selective in the law firms we recruit for and you can expect:
- A supportive work environment that is friendly and open. We only place candidates in firms that treat their solicitors with respect.
- Professional career growth. Our clients offer their solicitors ongoing training and development opportunities.
- Salary commensurate with experience. We do not place candidates in firms who consistently underpay their solicitors.
These law firms are looking for bright and capable solicitors to help grow their practice and you could become a member of their legal team.
We offer several resources to enhance your employment search experience.
- Solicitor Job Search presents current law vacancies with specific requirements and on-line application process.
- Q&A for Candidates discusses questions we have received from our candidates and the advice we offer.
- Success stories are first person accounts of candidates who have found their ideal job through Mandaus.
- Contact allows you start your confidential search immediately.
We also recommend the free book: “9 Secrets that Successful Solicitors Use to Land £100k+ Jobs with Top London Law Firms.”
It’s all in the Name
When founder Nicholas Tyrrell chose to open a legal recruitment agency focused on London firms, he called it Mandaus for a reason. Mandaus is the name of the short sword wielded by the original headhunters on the Island of Borneo.
We may not be the original legal headhunters, but our unique approach cuts through the mundane to achieve extraordinary outcomes. Our unique relationships with both clients and candidates present exceptional opportunities for both groups with outstanding results.
