10 Things to do before attending a Legal Job Interview

1. Review your CV. If an agent has sent it, ask them for a copy. We amend CVs nearly every time we send one out – mainly to remove any waffly bits or to present them in a better light. Get a copy, read it carefully. Remind yourself of anything you may have written 10 years ago and forgotten about.

Top Tips for getting and not getting locum assignments

Top Tips for getting assignments
* Make sure your CV is as detailed as possible. It is no good sending us a CV that does not tell us what you have been doing for the past 20 years. Just writing “Conveyancing” does not give us anything near enough detail!
* Make sure your CV is presentable as possible. So many CVs are poorly produced, badly laid out and with multiple fonts all over the place. If this is what your CV looks like then what on earth are your files and letters going to be like?
* Be prepared to take assignments away from home to start with. Go for everything you can and if offered a post make sure you fulfil it. We rarely offer a locum a second chance if they fail to turn up or cancel at short notice. Our business depends on our reputation and locums who pull out are just about the most damaging thing to our company’s future existence that we can think of.
* Make sure you have supplied us with two references from recent employers. To whom it may concern references are best.
* Don’t get disillusioned when you miss out on an assignment. Keep trying – sooner or later one will come up and you will start getting regular bookings.

Top Tips for not getting assignments
* Be as awkward as possible when we ask you for paperwork,.
* Refuse to supply references.
* Send us a one page CV with large time gaps on.
* Not bother renewing your practising certificate.
* Reply to our updates a week later.
* Agree to cover a locum role and then not turn up.
* Sit at your locum assignment and run another business (this has happened).
* Tap up other solicitors firms you deal with whilst in your locum role and ask them for work.

Low Cost Recruitment for Solicitors – Ten Percent Unlimited

Ten-Percent Unlimited is a service offering unlimited recruitment for a set monthly fee. It was set up by us back in 2011 with the aim of making the use of a recruitment agency cost-effective in a time of great financial difficulties for all in the profession. It is still going strong – we have had over 100 members to date – most of whom have been sole practitioners or smaller sized law firms.

The Unlimited Recruitment service offers law firms the chance to recruit as many permanent or locum candidates as needed over a period of 5 years in return for a monthly payment. There are no restrictions on numbers (although vacancies have to exist and we do operate a fair usage policy – so far never used) and no other costs. No other similar services exist in the recruitment industry.

For example in a 5 year period you may recruit a few locums for cover each year, a replacement conveyancing solicitor, a couple of legal secretaries, possibly a paralegal or two and have a look to expand the firm into a new area of law with an additional fee earner. All of this would cost considerable amounts in advertising and/or recruitment agency fees. However with Ten Percent Unlimited you simply pay a monthly fee for 60 months.

One of our recruitment consultants works full time on our Ten Percent Unlimited member firms’ recruitment needs and is always happy to talk about the service. If you would like a chat with Clare Fagan, please give her a ring on 0207 127 4343 or email clare.fagan@ten-percent.co.uk. www.tenpercentunlimited.co.uk.

Hourly Rates of Pay for Locum Solicitors and Legal Executives

Conveyancing rates have shot up over the last four weeks, as we enter the busy period. Conveyancing locums looking at £35 an hour and above are now finding firms giving them the go ahead, whereas a few months ago they would have been unlikely to get many bookings.

Unique Opportunity for a Clean Break – Offshore Law Firm for sale/partnership

Ref VAC 17235
Very rare chance to take partnership in an offshore law firm. The practice undertakes a range of work that includes (properly funded) legal aid crime work – which is fairly lucrative without much competition, family and commercial. The crime work is a mix of mainstream general crime, some specialist complex matters and some military. The firm would be interested in speaking to anyone looking to run their own practice on a full time or part time basis. Not necessarily seeking an immediate buyout or purchase of equity. Opportunity to benefit from profitable levels of legal aid rather than punitive. Owner looking to move on to non-law related pastures new and move back on shore. Well established law firm in a stunning location offshore. Very similar law to England and Wales. Full info at https://www.ten-percent.co.uk/buy-or-sell-a-solicitors-practice/

 

Using LinkedIn to Headhunt and Recruit new staff – does it work?

How long will LinkedIn last? Who knows? I imagine something else will come along sooner or later that does the same thing bigger and better. LinkedIn restricts certain access (eg contacting other people requires using up a limited number of contact credits) and I suspect another network will come along and do the same thing with free access and consign LinkedIn to the dustbin.

You would probably expect me to write something similar to the information below as it is in my company’s interest for you not to go directly to candidates and instead ask us to help you recruit and get paid a wodge of cash.. to read the full article please visit: https://legalrecruitment.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/using-linkedin-to-headhunt-and-recruit.html

 

CV Bloopers of the Month

Full CV received from a 10 year PQE Solicitor applying for a commercial solicitor role in London:

https://legalrecruitment.blogspot.co.uk/2017/07/cv-bloopers-of-month.html

Thinking of Retraining in Wills & Probate after years out of the profession and coming from a Commercial background. Is it possible?

We have recently received a request for advice from a solicitor coming from a Legal 500 commercial background and after over 10 years out now seeking to return to the profession but not practice in the area of commercial law she came from as she found it dull. This particular candidate is approaching the new middle age (50). She has come up with the idea of moving into wills & probate and wants to know if it is possible and should she do a Wills & Probate conversion course?

Retraining into Wills and Probate Law – is it possible?

Legal Recruitment News June 2017

Legal Job Market Report dated June 7th 2017

Summary
May has been a month very much affected by world events, half term and 2 bank holiday Mondays. Traditionally we have had a month of solid work as we enter the summer recruitment season (the busiest time of year for recruitment agencies is May to mid-July). Locum work got busy at the start of May but we have been quiet for the past few weeks. Permanent posts have been steadily trickling in, but we have ended the month in a fairly quiet phase. Both locum and permanent vacancies have decreased in number over the month, although we have had a significant number of assignments booked up and vacancies filled.

Locum hourly rates have picked up a bit but there is considerable regional variation. Plenty of locums available for Greater London but a shortage in other areas of the UK. It remains the case that availability rather than price one of the key factors for a lot of new assignments.

Hourly Rates of Pay for Locum Solicitors and Legal Executives

Conveyancing rates have crept up a bit over the last four weeks, as we enter the busy period, but they are still low. Conveyancing locums looking for £35 an hour and above will find higher levels of competition still exist with experienced conveyancers still available for around £28-32 per hour. For some firms this is almost certainly going to be the maximum level paid and locums need to bear this in mind…

May 2017 Locum Rates:
Residential Conveyancing Locum Solicitors – 1-5 years PQE, £26-30 per hour (no variation for central London).
Conveyancing Locum Solicitors & ILEX – 5-35 years PQE, handling all levels of conveyancing including managing a department – £28-£35 per hour, including central London.

Candidate Shortages in Wills & Probate and Conveyancing – myths and legends

As I write this brief article, I can reflect that I could probably have written the same article in any year between 2011 and 2017. In fact if you are reading this in 20 years’ time, and Donald Trump hasn’t ended the world as we know it, chances are the information and advice in the article will be the same. I have focussed on locum roles – on the permanent side it is still very difficult to recruit conveyancing and private client staff – there is a severe shortage of candidates.

Are Conveyancing Locums in Demand?

A private client solicitor called me today and said that she knew that conveyancing solicitors were in massive demand for locum work and that firms (including her own) couldn’t get hold of them at the moment. She knew that there is a lot of need for locum conveyancers but what about locum private client solicitors?

I was very surprised to hear this. Apart from short term conveyancing locum roles in areas with high levels of tourism in the summer we can usually get at least one locum conveyancer CV to any law firm in England and Wales within a few hours for cover of one week to one year.

CV Blooper(s) of the Month

This is taken from a law student’s CV:

“I went to watch a court case in the old bailey where a young man was being cross examined (a term I learned there ) for a drug charge. He represented himself without a lawyer and I was surprised by the strength of his rebuttals (another term I learned there) and also by how eloquently and respectfully everybody talked in the court. When leaving I decided that I was a bit more sure that I wanted to ingeniously use a thorough knowledge of the law as a career. I decided to enter a Cambridge Law essay competition where the question was “Should we repeal the human rights act 1998 “. The effort and private study I put into this essay was proof enough for me that I was compatible with a law career. I naturally feel I gravitate towards law, I love writing, studying and thinking about it. I haven’t been able to get an opportunity to explore any fields of law which I hope to do in summer.”

How to review your own CV

We recently received a CV from a candidate with the following advice placed at the bottom. I have edited it for a bit of content – eg the writer recommended 2 pages max but we think a CV can be as long as it needs to be for someone with experience. The remainder is a very effective and useful guide to reviewing your own CV.

CV Guide

1. Check and recheck for spelling and grammar. Attention to detail is absolutely key so ensure dates, names of companies etc are all correct and never use abbreviations or colloquialisms. Ask someone you trust to proof read your CV as a new pair of eyes can often be useful in identifying mistakes.

Local authority rates: get a dartboard, put a blindfold on, throw three darts and add up the total. Quite how local authority rates are calculated is beyond me, but they are one of the wonders of the recruitment world…

NB all rates exclude agency fees (we charge 18%). The rates are for self-employed locums billing firms directly on a weekly basis.

Etiquette Guide for Locums

Occasionally we get queries from law firms and locums as to what constitutes good practice by a locum when on assignment. Here are our answers to recent queries:

Should locums take phone calls during the day from their own clients?

No definitely not. Why would they? They are paid by the hour to do work for a company.

Minimum Wage and the Legal Profession

Over the last few months we have posted fairly junior job vacancies for a couple of our member law firms (ie firms who have signed up to TenPercentUnlimited – google for further info). One was for a receptionist at a salary of £13,000 and the other a paralegal for £14,000. We received a couple of responses, one of which is below (and quite fair I thought!):

“I [have] reported you for offering a low salary of £13000 which is under [the] minimum wage. A person who needs to pay rent, transport, food and try to save, will never be able to live a decent human life with that salary. Shame on you for offering slavery! You are disgusting.”

Low Cost Recruitment for Solicitors – Ten Percent Unlimited

Ten-Percent Unlimited is a service offering unlimited recruitment for a set monthly fee. It was set up by us back in 2011 with the aim of making the use of a recruitment agency cost-effective in a time of great financial difficulties for all in the profession. It is still going strong – we have over 100 members – most of whom are sole practitioners or smaller sized law firms.

The Unlimited Recruitment service offers law firms the chance to recruit as many permanent or locum candidates as needed over a period of 5 years in return for a monthly payment. There are no restrictions on numbers (although vacancies have to exist and we do operate a fair usage policy – so far never used) and no other costs. No other similar services exist in the recruitment industry.

For example in a 5 year period you may recruit a few locums for cover each year, a replacement conveyancing solicitor, a couple of legal secretaries, possibly a paralegal or two and have a look to expand the firm into a new area of law with an additional fee earner. All of this would cost considerable amounts in advertising and/or recruitment agency fees. However with Ten Percent Unlimited you simply pay a monthly fee for 60 months.

One of our recruitment consultants works full time on our Ten Percent Unlimited member firms’ recruitment needs and is always happy to talk about the service. If you would like a chat with Clare Fagan, please give her a ring on 0207 127 4343 or email clare.fagan@ten-percent.co.uk. www.tenpercentunlimited.co.uk.

Hourly Rates of Pay for Locum Solicitors and Legal Executives

As indicated above we are still noticing a change in locum rates for conveyancing, although as we have got busier the rates seem to be creeping up a bit. Although locum hourly rate payment vary widely according to the demand, length of assignment, level of experience and advance notice available, we have seen movement downwards in 2017 and a number of locums not getting work if their rate is too high.

Residential conveyancing rates are now settling at around the £28-32 per hour mark in most areas of the UK for any assignments longer than a few weeks. I suspect that the days of firms paying £40-45 per hour have probably ended (it has been quite a brief interlude from the norm!) and we think £35 per hour is going to be the maximum level seen generally. This was the case for residential conveyancing until 2016 when the hourly rates seemed to spike.

March 2017 Locum Rates:
Residential Conveyancing Locum Solicitors – 1-5 years PQE, £25-30 per hour (no variation for central London).
Conveyancing Locum Solicitors & ILEX – 5-35 years PQE, handling all levels of conveyancing including managing a department – £25-£35 per hour, including central London.
Commercial Property Solicitors – 1-40 years PQE – £30-45 per hour.
Wills & Probate Solicitors and Legal Executives – 3-35 years PQE – £30-45 per hour – usually the minimum is £35.
Family Solicitors – 4-40 years PQE – £24-32 per hour. Occasionally this goes up to £35 per hour for short notice or a few days cover.
Civil Litigation Solicitors and ILEX– 1-35 years PQE. £25-35 per hour. These rates cover mainstream litigation – eg county court and small claims matters.
Commercial Litigation Solicitors – 3+ years PQE – £35-50 per hour. Occasionally this is higher.
Company Commercial Solicitors – 3+ years PQE – £35-70 per hour.
Employment Solicitors – 3+ years PQE – difficult to give a range this year due to the lack of work generally in this field.
Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence – 3+ years PQE – £18-£30 per hour. Work very sporadic.
In House Legal Department Rates: 0-3 years PQE – £22-32 per hour (wide range due to variables in legal department work), 3+ years PQE – £30-75 per hour (very wide range due to the nature of in house work).
Local authority rates: get a dartboard, throw three darts and add up the total. Quite how local authority rates are calculated is beyond me, but they are one of the wonders of the recruitment world…

NB all rates exclude agency fees (we charge 18%). The rates are for self-employed locums billing firms directly on a weekly basis.

Should I Stay or Should I Go? The Dilemna for Newly Qualified Solicitors

In April every year we are regularly contacted by newly qualified and 1 year PQE (post-qualification experience) solicitors who ask the following questions:

1. Should I stay with my training law firm for at least 2 years when I qualify?
2. How much should I get paid?
3. What other options do I have?
4. Does it harm my career if I move when I qualify?
5. Does it harm my career if I stay where I am when I qualify?
6. If I move will I get a higher salary?

Our response is usually:

1. No, not necessarily.
2. Depends on the field of law, the firm and the geographical location.
3. Usually plenty.
4. No
5. No
6. Probably.

What is a QBE lawyer?

The term QBE comes from the financial sector and is increasingly applied to lawyers as well. A number of conveyancers are QBE and so are in house Counsel. It is rare for anyone to practice in law without at least an LLB or LLM, but they do exist, particularly in the property fields.

QBE Accountants are those accountants who have no formal qualifications and the definition of QBE is Qualified By Experience. So a QBE lawyer is someone who works within the legal profession as a fee earner (ie generates fees for their employer) but who is not formally qualified.

We discovered the existence of The Cure Parkinson’s Trust whilst researching alternatives to Parkinsons UK. The cure or treatment of Parkinson’s is of particular interest to us as we have lost a family member (and former trustee) to the disease.

.
Grants to research institutes were £672k.

Low Cost Recruitment for Solicitors – Ten Percent Unlimited

Ten-Percent Unlimited is a service offering unlimited recruitment for a set monthly fee. It was set up by us back in 2011 with the aim of making the use of a recruitment agency cost-effective in a time of great financial difficulties for all in the profession. It is still going strong – we have over 100 members – most of whom are sole practitioners or smaller sized law firms.

The Unlimited Recruitment service offers law firms the chance to recruit as many permanent or locum candidates as needed over a period of 5 years in return for a monthly payment. There are no restrictions on numbers (although vacancies have to exist and we do operate a fair usage policy – so far never used) and no other costs. No other similar services exist in the recruitment industry.

For example in a 5 year period you may recruit a few locums for cover each year, a replacement conveyancing solicitor, a couple of legal secretaries, possibly a paralegal or two and have a look to expand the firm into a new area of law with an additional fee earner. All of this would cost considerable amounts in advertising and/or recruitment agency fees. However with Ten Percent Unlimited you simply pay a monthly fee for 60 months.

One of our recruitment consultants works full time on our Ten Percent Unlimited member firms’ recruitment needs and is always happy to talk about the service. If you would like a chat with Clare Fagan, please give her a ring on 0207 127 4343 or email clare.fagan@ten-percent.co.uk. www.tenpercentunlimited.co.uk.

Summary

Hourly Rates of Pay for Locum Solicitors and Legal Executives

We have noticed a change in locum rates for conveyancing and I suspect this is a general adjustment in the market. Although locum hourly rate payment vary widely according to the demand, length of assignment, level of experience and advance notice available, we have seen movement downwards and a number of locums not getting work if their rate is too high.

Residential conveyancing rates are now settling at around the £28-32 per hour mark in most areas of the UK for any assignments longer than a few weeks. I suspect that the days of firms paying £40-45 per hour have probably ended (it has been quite a brief interlude from the norm!) and we think £35 per hour is going to be the maximum level seen generally. This was the case for residential conveyancing until 2016 when the hourly rates seemed to spike.

 Top Quality Summary Sections/Personal Statements on CVs

The summary at the top of a CV is one of the key areas of a CV that so often gets ignored by candidates or filled with meaningless waffle. A good number of CVs we see every day actually miss them off completely, which is an opportunity missed if you are someone who fits a job description perfectly. We have recently had sight of possibly the best (and worst) personal statement ever seen on a CV. It read:

1. VERY HARD WORKING,DECENT LOOKING,ALWAYS WELL DRESSED BLOKE.
2. Honest, hard working and reliable person with a strong work ethic and commitment to exceed expectations.
3. I have an excellent communication and interpersonal ability, this enables me to be interactive when working as part of a team.
