As specialists in business services in the legal sector, we know roles across management functions in law are on the rise. We have also seen new roles emerge too – in project and process management, innovation, change, risk & compliance, and more. With these roles, new talent and skills are constantly coming into law, which are not only changing the legal business model, but the mind-set too. We regularly share our insights collected from our daily work with law firm clients and candidates. But we realised we could take this a step further, collating data on the business services roles advertised in the legal sector since 2016 and using that to track trends across different business services disciplines. We also hoped to provide a report that could act as a benchmark for your own recruitment efforts, helping provide clarity on the areas of increasing recruitment activity – as well as specific trends in different roles and regions.
