Get Hired

We consult, support and advise, but ultimately, the choice is always yours. Why not get in touch and start the conversation?

We provide a fully consultative service as opposed to a simple CV sending agency. We aim to meet legal professionals open to a move to find out exactly what makes them tick, which puts us in the best position to match the right lawyer to the right law firm. We also understand the importance of confidentiality and, for that reason, we are always available beyond 5pm for a phone call or a coffee.

Everyone has different career goals, so we tailor our service to suit each individual lawyer we work with. We promise to be by your side every step of the way, guiding and coaching you through the entire job move process.


Reasons to
Work With Us

Career Advice

We’ll guide, support and help decision making through your career.

We have the experience to offer you a fresh perspective, giving valuable insight into career progression tactics, salary expectations, retrain opportunities or general advice on the job market. Many of those we work with benefit from being presented with job opportunities that they wouldn’t have considered without the benefit of our input and advice. 

Time Saving

Job hunting is hard work and can be stressful, let us help.

Identifying and pursuing the right job opportunities is often a time consuming and frustrating process for candidates. Scouring the internet for jobs, making multiple applications for roles and chasing up feedback, often in the evenings, can take up valuable time best spent doing other things.

Inside Knowledge

We often know where the jobs before they go to the open market.

At Thornton Legal we invest a lot of time developing and maintaining relationships with law firms and networking. We have the ear of Partners and HR Managers and are aware of opportunities that either aren’t being advertised or are being recruited for exclusively by one or two trusted recruiters.

Quick Market Access

We’ll put CV in front of the right people.

We have expert industry knowledge, giving you the best possible chance of a successful job search. We know who is recruiting, at what level and have detailed information about a role/firm that may not be obvious from a website. We always try and meet hiring clients, so we can share information that others won’t have access to. All very helpful in a successful interview process.

CV Preparation

A CV sells you and it’s got to be right.

Your CV is your own personal sales document that will help to sell your skills and secure your perfect job. It’s worth spending some time on it and we’ll give you as much help as you need including tailoring it to specific opportunities.

Offer Negotiation

It’s in our interests to get you the best offer possible.

Negotiating your own salary directly can cause all manner of problems if done badly. Salary negotiation is best left to somebody who is experienced in handling it in a sensitive and effective way. Offers can sometimes be much lower than expected and on occasions asking for too much can alienate the other party and result in a fatal breakdown in negotiations - we can demonstrate a high success rate of offers being accepted

Moral Support

We will be with you every step of the way.

At Thornton Legal we will support you through the entire recruitment journey, advising you at the right times but also giving you the headspace to think clearly without unnecessary and undue influence.

We Come Recommended

Something we are really proud of.
