Surrey Legal recruitment agency listing
Though globalisation, technology and new structures are seeing a change in the legal sector, the industry remains an important part of the makeup of the UK economy. Worth around £25bn, the legal sector is mainly dominated by solicitors, although it also includes barristers, attorneys and conveyancers. The industry tends to be highly academic and skilled and as such there has become a need for legal recruitment agencies to find suitable candidates for positions across the sector.
Salaries for Legal jobs in Surrey
Traditionally, the legal sector has always been well paid with highly esteemed positions such as lawyers being able to earn £100K with the relevant experience. Of course, other roles don't demand such a salary and secretarial and paralegal roles may typically expect in the region of £25K. Legal services cover many different areas of law and can encompass employment law, financial services, litigation and personal injury.
Surrey legal recruitment agencies aim at finding suitably qualified legal candidates for the Surrey and often wider South East area. The average legal salary in Surrey tends to exceed £30K and it's close proximity to London makes it a prime location for the industry.
Entry requirements for candidates
Usually deemed a somewhat exclusive industry, qualifications are essential for potential candidates looking to enter the legal services. While courses in law and legal practices are available at university, apprenticeships are becoming increasingly prominent in the industry. Level 3 and 4 apprenticeships are typically aimed at school leavers and have minimal entry requirements and these generally lead to admin positions although further study from here can lead to progression and more responsibility. Candidates looking to be successful in the sector also need to be good problem solvers, organised and have strong analysis skills.
