THE COMPANYlegal recruitment london

Legal Works is a specialist independent legal recruitment company dedicated to providing innovative, bespoke recruitment solutions for a select range of quality clients both in-house & private practice, national & international.

Legal Works has been set up by a group of like minded individuals keen to focus on the positive aspects of recruitment.  Fed up with the constraints imposed on them by the larger organisations they worked for in the past, they determined to shrug off these shackles and invest time money and energy in a new, lean entity able to trip nimbly through the legal recruitment jungle.

The philosophy we apply and operate under constantly and consistently at Legal Works is one of complete openness & honesty. The free flow of information is the key to ensuring the recruitment process is a positive experience for all. We find adopting this policy means that clients & candidates return to use us again & again.


For clients we secure candidates through a unique combination of search - headhunting targeted & named candidates & through selection - reviewing our extensive data-bases, as well as utilising a range of advertising optionsFor candidates we adopt a thoroughly pro-active attitude.  We do not want to act as mere postman like so many other agencies, we want to work for our money & actually find you a job.  We go out into the market and work it hard on your behalf, shaking our huge network tree.  Lateral thinking we find does get results.

In this way we leave absolutely no stone unturned and significantly bend the odds towards a successful placement.  You’re all happy, we’re all happy!
