It's great to be able to finally express a little optimism, albeit tempered with a solid dose of caution. Since the beginning of the new financial year, green shoots appear to be sprouting!

Corporations are leading the way. The across-the-board ban on recruitment of additional staff has resulted in enormous workloads for many in-house lawyers. Corporate teams have skirted the recruitment bans by creating contract roles (both full-time and part-time), many of which have rolled over. The only proviso is that the salary packages currently on offer are significantly less than what was on market a year ago.

Flexibility is the key. There may well be interesting in-house positions which you feel you are suited to. The roles are likely to be for contract periods ranging from three to 12 months. It's up to you to take a chance on whether the position is ultimately extended.

Feedback from corporations is that they are picking up excellent-quality candidates in this market so, with that in mind, it may be worth taking the plunge!
