Legal Recruitment

There are various reasons for needing a legal expert in your team. Smaller companies often cannot justify a full-time legal section, and therefore outsource their legal work to a specialist as and when the need arises. At the other end of the scale, legal firms can find themselves short staffed due to sickness, parental leave or an unexpected increase in business. The terms of the contract do not matter; we can work with whatever it is you need. Whether you need a solicitor, paralegal or admin support from a legal background we have got you covered.

Specialist Legal Recruitment Agency


We are Outstaff, and we are a specialist recruitment agency that believes we have turned recruitment on its head and found the best working practices to ensure we can find our clients exactly what they need in a timescale that suits their need, even if that is tomorrow morning. Our legal recruitment team is continuously looking for staff to add to our books, and for some candidates, short-term emergency placements actually suit their family life better than a permanent role. Other people are looking for a new challenge on a longer-term basis and already having contact with them makes the process of getting the best person for the job to you a smoother faster experience. If we cannot find a suitable person already in the frame, then we have the skills to locate even more talent quickly and efficiently so as not to cost you any time.

Stringent Screening for Leading Legal Recruitment


If we have a candidate already on our radar that means we will have completed the time-consuming part of recruitment, the interview and pre-contract checks. In cases where we have to find someone quickly, we are confident our team have the checking process down to a fine art to avoid any unnecessary holdups. Screening can take time, but recruitment is what we do best, so we know our team are experts at what they do. We have an extensive screening process partly because there are mandatory obligations we need to fulfil, and because there are some checks, that will not be considered vital, but that we believe help us to bring you a better calibre of candidate. Our full screening list includes fundamental elements such as the right to work and checking the qualifications offered up, taking references and running criminal records checks, right up to director checks and financial records. In the legal sector you cannot afford to make mistakes; therefore it is imperative we only place candidates who genuinely have the qualification and experience needed to handle the role. The ramifications of incorrect legal advice could be devastating to any business, but especially to a small business, which is why we ensure this cannot happen. The more stringent the checking, the more confidence we can have in the placement. Our reputation is built on ensuring your reputation, and we hope to develop a long and successful working relationship so only ever provide the best team members for your role.
