We're in an exciting phase of moving our trainee recruitment assessments to a virtual platform but there's so much more we can do to market our offering for early careers talent so we're on the lookout for a recruitment expert from a graduate background to help keep early careers projects on track. This role is to be based from our Bristol office and is being advertised on a full time basis however consideration will be given to part time applicants.
In this role you'll be given genuine autonomy to shape and redesign an early careers platform to include the transition of SQE and the introduction of Solicitor Apprentices by Autumn 2022 whilst being supported by the Recruitment Manager. You'll be the key contact for 20+ Trainee Solicitors across all office locations and the key contact for our Training Principal who heads up the Trainee Recruitment Panel. You'll have some help in managing this busy remit as our Early Careers Advisor will help keep you on track with deadlines for the Trainee cycle most busy around seat rotation and trainee recruitment assessment periods. And if you're keen to branch out into other recruitment, there's plenty to keep you busy on that front too.
You'll ideally be from a legal background with at least 2 years' experience of managing a graduate process, be familiar with organising and running the trainee recruitment assessment process and had involvement with seat rotation and pastoral support for trainee solicitors, and you'll have an awareness of the new Solicitors Qualifying Examination that comes into effect this Autumn. If you've got further than an awareness of the SQE and have already worked on a project to implement and have some knowledge of the Solicitor Apprenticeship route, then you're really ticking every box!
