The big six of law have jumped aboard a new online job service that aims to take recruiters out of the process by better linking candidates to potential employees.
Twosteps, launched by former EA International director and well-known headhunter Edward Andrew, has confirmed with Lawyers Weekly that all six tip-tier law firms have agreed to trial the new service, alongside another fifty or so smaller law firms in Australia and another fifty in the UK.
Andrew has launched the service with long-time friend Jane Rae from London with an initial focus on both the Australian and UK legal markets.
The site offers a job board service, alongside secure networking and custom-built technology providing tracking, screening and management to enable employers to create a "talent bank" for their current and future candidate searches.
Sinclair Cruickshank, Twostep's Asia Pacific director, said the site aims to act as a direct interface between law firms and candidates, noting that both sides of the appointment process will benefit from the ability to send direct private messages, undertake clear job and candidate searches and provide as much or as little information on their profiles as they see fit.
