My client, a leading legal consultancy based in the heart of the city are currently seeking a Engagement Advisor to join the team. This is a key role for the business, you'll be matching the lawyers to the right opportunities, while maintaining the best possible experience for both lawyers and clients.

  • Developing a deep knowledge of their technical legal experience and sector backgrounds.

  • Helping to drive recruitment and resourcing strategy based on the lawyers and client opportunities we have at any one time.

Matching lawyers to the right client assignment opportunities:

  • Quickly building strong relationships with all lawyers to successfully match them to the right client opportunities.
