ACILEX guide for recruiters

We know recruiters have to juggle meeting the needs of your clients and the expectations of candidates. Legal practices are increasingly diverse and require a range of experience, personalities and skills but they all have one thing in common: the need to recruit and retain talented individuals, at all levels. 

CILEX works with employers and recruitment companies to identify and solve the problems of high turnover and de-motivated individuals, often attributed to employees’ need to seek a professional status. 

We know individuals want to be counted, to be valued and to be part of a recognised community – to claim a status and enhance their position and value within a firm. Employers want to reduce their turnover, retain talent and to progress individuals from all backgrounds. 

Imagine if, as a recruiter, you could help solve all their problems? 

Our Associate Membership grade provides paralegals and those with a qualifying law degree a recognised status, simply for doing their job!
