Briefing report: The new recruiting
This report features the Legal Support Network recruitment survey and was sponsored by Codex Edge, part of Cogence Search.
Our recruitment survey focussed on the extent to which direct sourcing was taking hold in large law firms. We questioned whether firms had a formal strategy, how they were resourcing themselves and what levels of success they were having in sourcing candidates directly.
The report delves into the world of legal recruitment sharing expert advice from top 100 heads of recruitment. The full report includes:
- A comment from Tom Dean, corporate partnerships manager at Legal Support Network, explaining how more direct sourcing can help law firm recruiters get more of their recruiting right, right now.
- A comment from Mark Husband, managing director at Codex Edge, who says narrowing your candidate pipeline from ‘maybe’ to ‘definitely’ doesn’t have to be such an imprecise science.
- An industry analysis from Richard Brent, Briefing’s editor, who analyses the difference that direct sourcing makes, and hears from top 100 heads of recruitment about how the business of talent is changing.
