How to attract quality talent: lawyers

August 8, 2017

 The consistent trend amongst lawyers is that although a quality remuneration package is essential, this is not the only requirement. Candidates also emphasise the importance of the opportunity on offer. Key considerations include, but are not limited to:

  • The calibre of work

  • The partner or team that they will be joining

  • The prospects of career progression

  • The training and/or mentorship opportunities available

  • The firm’s culture and other social aspects

  • The work/life balance or flexible working arrangements on offer


So whilst it remains extremely important to offer a competitive financial package, it is also crucial for employers to highlight and promote all aspects of the role on offer. Whether it be working with particularly high-profile clients, offering career progression or providing outstanding training, it is essential that employers highlight how a particular opportunity will benefit a candidate’s long-term career.
