Delivering quality locum support, every time

Locums offer law firms a flexible and adaptable approach to staffing, without the long-term commitment. Hiring a locum can be an incredibly effective solution to a business-critical need, giving you confidence that you can still deliver on those all-important projects with highly skilled and experienced staff.

Here are just a few reasons you might benefit from a locum:

  • Unforeseen absence and sickness
  • Notice period cover for new hires
  • Maternity leave and other planned absence
  • Increased workload and project work
  • Absence during the holiday periods

Our specialist locum team is known for its consistent and successful service offering. We have a strong network of locum candidates who can hit the ground running and temporarily support your business, often at short notice. Having placed a high number of our locum professionals into multiple assignments, we understand their strengths and what they can bring to your business.
