|Work for Us
It is our passion for bringing the right people together that stands us out from the crowd
Small in size but big on service, Lawson Clark is a leading recruitment boutique serving London's legal support staff.
Legal secretaries, paralegals and all the other categories of legal support people have been turning to us for 25 years now, and we have built our success on the following simple principles:
• We never forget that our candidates are our business
• We never forget that our candidates are our customers
• We never forget that our first priority is customer satisfaction
We have invested our time developing close working relationships with a very broad range of London's law firms, and we are located for easy access in the heart of the capital's business district within yards of Liverpool Street station.
Our two founders have been working in legal recruitment for more than 40 years now, and they are both still involved in the business today, training and advising our recruitment team.
We take enormous trouble over the choice of our recruitment consultants. They are people who care about what they do and they are people who can demonstrate genuine customer service skills. They are also highly trained , and we know that because alone in our market we provide the training ourselves. Whilst none of our competitors can boast anything like a formal training programme for their consultants every member of our team has been through and passed an intensive six month training programme, largely based in the classroom. This includes modules on the legal specialisms, the workings and structures of law firms and HR departments, the secretarial role in the Legal Profession and a whole range of other topics from 'user friendly' interviewing techniques and the preparation of candidates for job interviews to excellence in levels of service both to candidates and law firms.
All of our consultants have passed three written examinations in these subjects.
Finding exactly the right match is never easy, and whether you are a job seeker or an employer, you need an agent who cares , an agent who listens , and an agent who can combine unlimited patience with an expert knowledge of the jobs market.
Whether it's legal secretaries, paralegals, or any of the wide range of other support people we handle, we see it as our job to be working on the lion's share of the best vacancies with the lion's share of the best people coming onto the market.
How do we do it? We do it by word of mouth recommendations from satisfied job seekers and their employers, we do it by competing in a variety of media using the very best advertising professionals, and we do it by reputation . A reputation for the breadth of our client list and the sheer variety of openings we can offer, with clients who range from the world's top law firms to London's sole practitioners.
It is that variety which attracts so many of our candidates and whilst there are many 'specialist' recruitment agencies, there are none with Lawson Clark's experience and pulling power in attracting the best that the market has to offer.
What they say about us
We are trusted by some of the most exciting and influential firms and companies of all shapes and sizes in the London legal market.
Much of our work is confidential and comes as a result of word of mouth referrals from satisfied clients , but if you are a law firm who would like to hear what other law firms think of our service, we would be very happy to put you in discreet touch with clients who know us and work with us.
