My Role at Interlink Recruitment

I recruit for Senior Lawyers and Partner throughout the UK (with a main focus in the South) in all private practice areas. 

My clients consist of a number of top tier law firms, with multiple offices around the UK. I really like to get to know both my candidates and clients on a personal level as I feel this is the best way to get someone situated in their perfect role. It is not just about your skill set but if you will fit in with the culture and atmosphere of the office.

Why Recruitment?

Before joining Interlink Recruitment in 2019, I was at the Newcastle University completing my law degree. After finishing my degree, I decided that the conventional route of completing my LPC and training to be a Solicitor was not for me. While I enjoyed studying law, I really wanted to move into a role that was very people focused and kept me on the phone, building relationships. So becoming a Legal Recruitment Consultant was the best of both worlds. I am able to use the knowledge I gained at university while using my interpersonal skills to find candidates their perfect role!

Outside of Work

When it comes to what I do in my spare time, I am very big into health and fitness, you always find me in the gym or running the streets of Manchester. I also use this to raise money for charities close to my heart. I am currently training to complete the Manchester Marathon at the end of this year.

If you can’t find me in the gym, you will usually find me in a sports bar, with my close family and friends, beer in hand watching the football.
