Newspaper listing job adverts and a red telephoneWhether you’re actively looking for a new role, exploring jobs in an alternative area or thinking about returning to work after a lengthy career hiatus, randomly browsing job boards will not get you very far. You’re also likely to find many legal recruitment agencies politely turning you away (assuming you can even get them to ring you back!).

To maximise your chances of bagging a new job, particularly in competitive sectors like law where hiring organisations typically prefer candidates with uncomplicated vanilla CVs, you’ll need to pull together a robust multi-pronged job search strategy. Not sure what that involves, book a session with me to discover how to become your own legal recruiter.

Who is this for?

Trainee solicitors looking for NQ roles, associate lawyers at all levels of PQE and returners

What’s involved?

1 x Zoom session lasting 90 mins

In addition to helping you stay motivated and focussed, a 90-minutes session with me will help you to re-gain your confidence and cover tailored advice on tried and tested job search techniques. In addition to sector insights and discovering how to get the most from legal recruitment consultants, I will also be able to share tips on how to cut out the middle man.

I can also advise you on the following areas: what to include in an elevator pitch; how to manage blips / gaps on your CV; using LinkedIn effectively as a job search tool; how to harness your network to tap into the hidden jobs market; pros and cons of direct /speculative applications; and salary negotiation.

“I approached Husnara following a recommendation from another NQ who had successfully landed a job with a top tier law firm. My profile had some particularities as I was originally foreign qualified and had also deviated from my legal career for more than three years. In a nutshell, I wasn’t being noticed by legal recruiters. Husnara was very understanding, took the time to hear me out and gave me practical and realistic advice, which I implemented immediately. Excluding the holiday season, it took me less than ten days following my session with Husnara to start being invited to interviews. I’ve now signed a contract as an NQ with an up and coming law firm specialising in exactly my preferred field of law and cannot be more thankful for Husnara’s advice.” NQ solicitor
