We are your partner along the path from trainee solicitor to a law firm that corresponds to your qualifications and professional goals. Sound trivial? Given the thematic diversity and international orientation of the market, this is by no means an easy task. Because not only high potentials are choosing specialisations – commercial law firms are also increasingly working in clearly defined fields. With Hays' experienced personnel consulting services, making a successful start in a new career happens more quickly.
As experts in headhunting and recruitment services we know the exact requirements and areas of emphasis for law firms and provide candidates with accurate and valuable information. We are the sparring partner you need when you're paving the way for your professional future. Our expert consultants are very familiar with this phase of a lawyer's career – after all, the majority of them are qualified lawyers themselves.
As part of a personal and confidential meeting with you, we will be happy to answer any questions you might have about getting started in the legal market. Our professional coaching service includes introductions to practices or businesses that have been agreed in advance with you. With us, you have control of a broadly-based application process that includes timely feedback, allowing you to keep all other opportunities on the market open.
Above-average performance in the two state examinations is mandatory for all our applicants. Having additional qualifications such as an LL.M. or a Ph.D. will not, of course, exclude a candidate from consideration.
