It is now just over 6 months since we set up Fry & Brown and things certainly haven’t been slow in taking off. We have worked on 38 permanent positions within financial services, and helped many lawyers find the next step in their careers. We have agreed terms to work with 2 of the 5 big retail banks, several international banks and asset managers, 3 big insurers, and many more small or start up financial institutions – which seem to be trending as where many of you want to take your careers. We have found positions for lawyers from 2 to 17 years’ qualified, with some standalone and number 2 positions. Although our focus is placing qualified lawyers into permanent roles, we have even managed to place a paralegal and a temporary lawyer too.
But we are aware we haven’t been able to help everyone as yet, and we want to stay up to date and in touch with those of you who are still looking to find the right next role. We’re determined to provide a better service than our industry is known for and we can only do that by communicating with you. So please spare a moment to send a quick reply to let us know whether have found something, or that you are still looking. Also, any comments and suggestions would be welcome – we are aware we might not be getting everything right straight away.
We have been overwhelmed by the support we have received so far, both in terms of giving Fry & Brown a chance for your next hire, or recommendations of colleagues that we might be able to help.
Please stay in touch!
