Free careers search service for legal graduates launched

Legal recruitment agency BCL Legal is launching a free, online service which aims to match aspiring legal professionals with employers.

BCL Graduates is available to graduates and paralegals with less than six months legal experience after qualification.

The nationwide consultancy will give law firms access to graduates and paralegals’ CVs and enable them to search for candidates based on key criteria and contact candidates for free.

James Batt, director of BCL Legal, said: “We know that it can be tough for graduates to secure their first position so we wanted to devise a simple to use and accessible platform to help them. This seemed like the ideal service as it enables law firms and graduates to connect. It will also save on marketing and recruitment spend which can only be a good thing in such challenging times.”
