RA Now

Recruiter for the law sector, BCL Legal, has announced its highest ever number of candidate placements in one quarter since it started trading 11 years ago.

The firm placed 230 candidates across its network of offices in Manchester, London, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool, Reading and Bristol in the first three months of 2014, compared to 160 during the same period in 2013. This equates to a total rise of 44% year on year.

The results cover permanent, fixed term contract and temporary roles handled by BCL Legal’s private practice and in-house departments. On the private practice side, demand is being driven by the property, personal injury, conveyancing, commercial and corporate sectors, while the in-house division witnessed growth in manufacturing, defence, energy, technology, retail, FMCG, leisure and financial services.

The firm’s total headcount now stands at 48.

“We spend a lot of time understanding the market, analysing what’s driving it and identifying where demand is coming from,” said James Batt, director (pictured). “We’ve also invested heavily in our team development programme, IT systems and general business infrastructure – all of which allows us to be as proactive and productive as possible.”
