From speaking with my candidates, friends and family there seems to be a common consensus that the market still isn’t what it used to be and that there is fear of ‘first in first out’. I couldn’t disagree more.

Since joining Cox Purtell just 3 months ago with 7 years legal recruitment experience under my belt, I have had more success than anticipated with a constant flow of jobs from small, medium and top tier law firms in need of anything from Administrators to Business Support to Legal PA’s and Lawyers; and with the common question from all of my clients of ‘where are the candidates?’ I have jobs rolling in every week, I saw merger after acquisition in 2012, I hear nothing but growth and new instruction in my ears, my clients are screaming out for the cream. It is time to re-educate today’s talent with sincere confidence.

What do Sydney’s law firms really want?

Simples – commitment, specialism, personality and competitor experience. Sydney’s legal industry is looking for professionals who set themselves apart from the rest and have confidence in their product and can evidence their successes with engaging case stories.

When is the right time to move?

I believe 4-6 years is a good amount of time to stay in a firm, learn what you can, pass on your wisdom and move on. It is the natural flow of things and often expected from employers; it keeps it fresh, innovative and engaging for both candidate and law firm.  Having that experience allows you to tailor your service from everything you have learned from your mistakes, successes and peers that will give you individuality and a slant on your new profile. Once you feel you have peaked and levelled and find yourself disengaged it is time to start asking yourself, what is going to make you happy?

Your career is an investment, a personal development tool, a peace of mind strategy and a life style choice so why the hesitation in moving forward?
