Following the countries decision to leave the EU in June 2016 there was certainly some initial concern over how the legal jobs market may react. Fortunately we noticed no change to hiring patterns or a hold on any live vacancies. We did however notice an increased requirement from our in-house clients to hire solicitors, we believe could because in-house legal teams may have to manage increased workloads assisting their companies to prepare for all eventualities.
Recently (Nov/ Dec 2018) we have noticed a similar market reaction following the news that Theresa May had negotiated a deal with the EU, but with the decision to delay her parliamentary vote, again we noticed an increase in the hiring of in house solicitors, but we noted no change in the hiring patterns of private practice.
During this politically turbulent time we appreciate that the jobs market for our candidate is of upmost importance and we are pleased to report that thus far we have not noticed any decrease of posts in the legal jobs market in the locations that we work in.
