We could be forgiven for thinking so but we would also be […]

What makes a good legal recruiter?

LEEDS LEEDS LEEDS

2015 has seen rent levels in London rise to such an extent that young professionals have been forced out of the city and into the surrounding suburbs. Consequently, the average junior lawyer’s commute into the City has gone from “fail” to “bail”. Couple that with an increasing cost of living and regular tube strikes and […]

The First Impression: The Dreaded CV!

If we had a Pound for every time a solicitor contemplating a move has said that they are dreading putting together a CV, we would be very rich indeed!  Some find it a very daunting task, especially if they have not drafted a CV since their training contracts or even pre-training contract.  If you are […]

Counter-Offers – Better the Devil you know?

2015 has been an exciting year for legal professionals – here at CapeClarke, we’ve seen legal practices show an increased appetite for sourcing legal talent externally. As a logical result of this, we’ve also noted a marked increase in the number of counter-offers being made to candidates, with the words “What are they offering you?” […]

Leeds JLD Sports Day – 27 June 2015

On 27 June 2015, in conjunction with the Leeds Junior Lawyers Division, we hosted a good old fashioned Sports Day at Weetwood playing fields.  All the old favourites were played!  Egg and spoon, welly wanging, tug o’ war, sack race and, of course, the three-legged race!! A good time was had by all and the […]
