A bit 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 (Legal, Marketing, Pharmaceutical, Public Sector, Technology), 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.

What the staff say

"When I joined Blue Pelican, I had just moved to the UK and left my family and friends back home in Australia. Lucky for me though, joining Blue Pelican has allowed me to gain a new group of family and friends in my workplace. The positive, professional and determined culture of Blue Pelican gives me the drive to do my best and continue to learn more every day. Blue Pelican take an ethical and open approach to recruitment which is recognised by our clients and candidates. It’s an absolute pleasure to be a pelican!"

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.

The Opportunity:

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.

This vacancy is to specialise in placing Legal Fee Earners (Solicitors and Legal Executives) into the London and Midlands market (private practice and in-house). You will be tasked with operating in a 360 capacity and will ensure that everyone receives the highest possible level of customer service as a priority. 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
  • 1/4ly lunches at fantastic restaurants – expenses paid
  • Various incentives and events run regularly for both company and individual teams – these can be both large and small, and have previously included iPads, TV’s as well as trips away to Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Cape Town, Chicago, Ibiza, Orlando, Prague and Barcelona.

** 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.
