Chadwick Nott Graduate Programme 2018/2019 - Bristol based
An Introduction to Chadwick Nott
Chadwick Nott is a boutique legal recruitment consultancy. We have previously won the Global Recruiter Award for Best Specialist Recruiter and been listed in the Times top 100 best small companies to work for. With offices based in London, Bristol, Manchester, Reading and Birmingham, Chadwick Nott has established a proven track record over the last 20 years of successfully placing all types of legal staff from partners and teams to paralegals across all parts of the UK. As part of an umbrella company (Impellam) we have the best of both worlds, combining the agility of a start-up with the global clout of a multinational. We have a flat structure which means you can have a meaningful impact on the business and input on our commercial direction from day one. This year has been very successful and with big plans for next, it is a great time to join us.
The South West team
Our South West and South Wales team have been an integral part of the legal recruitment landscape of this region ever since Chadwick Nott was founded in Bristol in 1992. We have pioneered legal recruitment across this diverse and exciting area covering Cornwall to Gloucestershire and Pembrokeshire to Dorset. Our market leading team hold over 50 years of recruitment experience between them and pride themselves on how well they know their key locations and their well-established client base consisting of top national, international, boutique and high-street firms in Bristol, Bath, Cheltenham, Cardiff, Swindon, Taunton, Exeter and Plymouth and across to Poole and Bournemouth. This large team is looking to expand and we seek two graduates to join us in the Bristol office.
Your working day and your career
As a consultant you will be responsible for your own desk with freedom over business strategy but within a collaborative and collegiate environment. A typical day may include anything from regular client or candidate meetings across our region, advising lawyers on current roles and options for their next career move, taking instructions on new jobs, writing adverts, using our extensive database and tools such as LinkedIn to identify new candidates and planning marketing events.
Our strikingly high retention rate at both senior and graduate level means that you will benefit from an unparalleled wealth of support and expertise throughout your career. You will become a leading market expert and develop relationships with a broad range of clients that include top-tier UK and international law firms. As you progress you will have the opportunity to lead teams, pitch for new business and develop new markets.
Your development is at the centre of what we do. You will embark on our structured graduate training programme ensuring you have the necessary knowledge and tools to run your own desk but the training doesn't stop there. Throughout your time with us you will receive continued training and guidance from industry leading consultants and have access to a fantastic support structure. The small intake we accept enables personalisation, allowing you to effectively develop key skills that will stay with you throughout your career. Alongside your Chadwick Nott training, you will also benefit from the Impellam network, giving you the chance to meet professionals from across other sector brands.
What we are looking for?
If you are an intelligent problem solver who approaches all tasks with a proactive and positive attitude and you are a driven and tenacious individual with a strong competitive streak, then we want to hear from you. Previous graduates have come from a diverse range of backgrounds with the common themes being strong academic ability, being a natural 'people person' and a charismatic approach to the challenges they meet.
What will you earn?
Chadwick Nott operates a completely transparent salary and commission structure that has no upper cap and no discretionary element so the sky is the limit in terms of your earning potential. As a guide, we would expect a graduate to earn between £30,000 and £40,000 in their first year rising to £50,000 in their second year. In addition we have an impressive array of reward schemes so many staff benefit on a regular basis in addition to our top billing consultants.
