Job hunters become the legal head hunted

It's been a tough couple of years for legal recruiters, which have had few positions to offer too many job hunters. But things are changing, and the market is more competitive than ever. Now, recruiters are latching on to new ways to stay at the top of the game.

It’s been a tough couple of years for legal recruiters, which have had few positions to offer too many job hunters. But things are changing, and the market is more competitive than ever. Now, recruiters are latching on to new ways to stay at the top of the game.

Professional recruitment firms are moving with the rest of the legal industry in what is likely the most obvious recruitment tool – the iPhone.

Legal recruiter Seldon Gill has today launched an iPhone application that sends job opportunities to lawyers’ phones, and allows them to apply for jobs. The move throws the privacy of job hunting at work to the wind, as lawyers can search and apply for jobs during a coffee break.

The New Lawyer recalls stories of managing partners and partners cutting job advertisements out of legal magazines and major newspapers before distributing those publications to staff.

This move by legal recruiters allows job hunters to become head hunted while they are at work.

Launched this month, the free application will speed up the already frantic race for the best jobs in law firm marketing – and the best talent – in the market, Seldon Gill said today.

Employer firms have responded positively to the move, the recruiter said.

Seldon Gill said no other Australian recruiters in any sectorhave made this move.

The days of over-cautious partners able to stymie employees’ job hunting at work are very much over.
