About Us:

Blue Pelican has been around for 17 years. Founded by 3 partners on the basis of ‘recruitment done better’.  Since then we’ve grown and evolved, driven by the changing face of recruitment and that of the dynamic markets we’re established within.

We now have 5 specialist divisions (Marketing, Legal, Technology, Pharmaceutical & Public Sector), each headed by Managing Consultants who report to the Board.

At our core are our people, some who have been with us for 10+ years, and have helped shape our vision, strategy and culture. Each highly knowledgeable in their specialist areas and know what it means to offer a ‘professional consultancy service’.

We do all of this in a friendly and informal environment with a culture that is based on honesty, openness, communication and teamwork – with a little bit of banter and fun too.

We are recruiting for a Legal Recruitment Consultant to join our specialist Legal team.  This team has been established for over 10 years at Blue Pelican and specialises in placing Legal Fee Earners and Legal Support staff.

You will have full autonomy over your own clients and candidates in this specific region and will seek to develop new business opportunities as much as understanding clients’ needs and objectives to deliver recruitment solutions.  This is a very warm desk with many established relationships with clients and candidates, but there is also great opportunity to develop this desk further too.

We currently work with Top 100 law firms, major regional law firms, smaller high street practices and also a number of insurance, telecoms, pharmaceutical and property firms who require in-house lawyers.

About You:

Ideally you will have previous experience recruiting within the Legal sector however, we would be happy to consider candidates who may have experience within other professional services. What is important to us is that you have a proven track record of achieving targets and a passion for recruitment.  You will be a confident negotiator who can remain calm under pressure, and you will be motivated to succeed in your work, demonstrating a strong work ethic.  All this with a friendly and approachable personality!

What we can offer you:

  •  Very competitive salary and benefits package
  • Fantastic opportunities for career progression
  • Training plan tailored to develop your skills and capabilities

** We know leaving an existing employer with a proven desk can be a big move, so are open to discussing guarantee periods, where appropriate, to make a career move easier.
