A new web-based "talent bank" has been launched which makes it easier to find candidates and helps law firms to reduce their recruitment costs.

The newly established organisation Twosteps uses cloud computing, digital media and e-recruitment software so that employers no longer have to spend time sorting through CVs, helping them to reduce their recruitment fees.

The Twosteps software can screen and match the best candidates, send candidates alerts based on specific criteria and can help candidates to manage their career with personalised privacy settings.

With law firms and legal employers already on board, such as Allen & Overy, Linklaters and Credit Suisse, jobseekers can now apply directly to these employers without recruiters.

Barrister turned head-hunter and chief executive officer of Twosteps, Edward Andrew, said: "There is nothing like Twosteps on the market. This website will revolutionise the way large employers recruit. It also allows smaller employers to compete for quality talent by searching from the same talent book."

Andrew highlighted the changing marketplace and the need for legal employers to rethink their business model in order to attract and retain a new generation of lawyers.

"The digital age has finally caught up with the legal services sector and more and more employers are now choosing to interact direct with candidates," he said. "Could this mean the end of high recruitment fees?"
