As former lawyers and legal recruiters, our Legal team members have a deep practical and technical understanding of a broad spectrum of roles across the law sector.
The legal profession continues to attract high caliber candidates, drawn by its range of career opportunities.
Legal practice requires a sharp analytical mind, agile problem-solving abilities, commercial acumen and the interpersonal skills that win client confidence. Those who work as attorneys, in-house counsel, in paralegal services or who serve on trials hare a passion for helping others, a propensity for good judgement, the stamina to handle a demanding caseload, and an enthusiasm for new ways of working. The rewards are commensurate with the challenges – a top salary, constant stimulation and opportunities to be part of a highly motivated and intellectually diverse team of colleagues.
Understanding this diversity and its accorporationing challenges is one of City CV’s strengths. Not only does our team understand the sector but we know how to support our clients on their journey to find the role that best meets their qualifications, goals and aspirations.
For some, this means identifying and consolidating their skills through a targeted coaching program. Others benefit from a fresh approach to their personal branding documents, resulting in powerful resumes and LinkedIn profiles which reflect their professional expertise, their command of a legal specialty, their commercial value, and give an immediate snapshot of their career history and achievements.
Whether for an in-house lawyer position, a general counsel, partner, a family, tax or corporate lawyer or just seeking a change of direction, individuals and organizations can take advantage of our executive coaching programs.
Whatever your field of expertise, we have industry specialists to transform your career.
