Ortolan Connect Law

What is Ortolan Connect Law?

Ortolan Connect Law is our fixed fee legal recruitment service, helping law firms and businesses to recruit high-quality lawyers. Unlike traditional agencies that might charge you 25% or more of salary as their fee, with Ortolan Connect Law you pay a fixed fee of £1,200. Our clients include law firms and businesses with in-house legal teams.

We have a strong understanding of the legal sector. Our fast-growing sister company, Ortolan Legal, is a commercial law firm, authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Its experienced solicitors specialise in corporate & commercial, employment law, dispute resolution, commercial property and insolvency. We benefit from access to their expert knowledge which, combined with our recruitment expertise at Ortolan People, enables us to recruit great lawyers. Our selection and assessment of candidates for you is informed by specialists who really know what you are looking for and understand how to identify candidates with the right attributes and experience for your position. We can not only judge whether a lawyer has the required technical skills and experience, but can also assess those other particular requirements which vary from position to position.

What's included in our £1,200 fixed fee?

Create the job advert

We will take the time to understand your business culture and the specialist skills you are seeking. Working closely with you, we will draft a person specification, job description and job advert.

Source candidates

Your advert will be posted on specialist legal job boards for 28 days. These sites currently include The Lawyer, Legal Week and Legal Prospects. In addition, your ad will be posted on most of the major job boards including LinkedIn, Indeed and Jobsite. We buy job credits in bulk, passing the savings on to our clients. We will also conduct a comprehensive search of the UK’s largest candidate databases, giving us access to over 7 million CVs.

Review applicants

We read every CV and only send you those that match your requirements. All applications will be reviewed by solicitors who have both private practice and in-house experience. We politely decline all the others.

Interview and hire

You choose who you want to interview from the CVs that we send to you. You can hire as many as you like for the same fixed fee.

Hope started operating in 2013 and we had a lot of positions that we needed to fill. We initially relied on recruitment agencies and did a little bit of our own direct advertising, but wanted to explore more cost effective recruitment methods. We decided to try some “e-recruiters” to see how they could help. Ortolan were by far the best and also the most cost effective of the suppliers that we tried and we now ask for their help with virtually all of our external recruitment needs, because they provide a very personal and tailored service, have people, rather than computers, working on their candidate searches and short lists. Using Ortolan has significantly reduced our expenditure on attracting candidates, but has also meant that we have had a much broader range of people applying to work for us than before. I’d highly recommend trying Ortolan to see how they can help you.
