You have been in specialist legal recruitment for 25 years. What made you want to launch a division specifically for legal professional support roles? There were two reasons.

We recently spotted an ad for a, relatively junior, in-house corporate lawyer role. The job sounded terrific but the advertisement said the employer specifically needed a candidate with an unrestricted practising certificate.  Whilst this might be the employer’s preference, there is certainly no legal requirement in Australia for an in-house counsel to have an unrestricted practicing certificate and we thought it might be a good opportunity to clear up possible confusion on this topic.  Since the commencement of the The Legal Profession Uniform Law (Uniform Law) and Rules in 2015, al ..read more
