Taylor Root is one of the world's leading legal recruitment businesses. With offices in Melbourne and Sydney together with our global network across Asia, Middle East and Europe, we partner with many of the premier law firms as well as blue-chip corporations to source the very best legal talent.

The majority of our recruitment consultants have law degrees or are qualified lawyers who want to use their legal backgrounds a little differently.

Due to growth in our Melbourne office, we are looking for resourcing consultant to work with our Melbourne consultants, all of whom are qualified lawyers, have worked in leading law firms and have had extensive experience as recruiters. The successful candidate will be involved in a wide range of work including;

  • liaising with lawyers to assess suitability for roles within Australia and overseas
  • assisting experienced consultants in briefing and preparing lawyers for interviews
  • candidate attraction and sourcing activities such as posting job adverts, LinkedIn promotion and database cleansing
  • arranging interviews and meetings with lawyers

This is an ideal opportunity for a bright, engaging and motivated law graduate, or undergraduate, with strong communication skills who wishes to develop an alternative career away from legal practice. Part-time applicants who are willing to commit to a minimum of twenty hours per week will also be considered.

Taylor Root have a dynamic, collegiate culture and a very strong track-record of moving their consultants around their global network. This is an outstanding opportunity for someone who may be looking to progress their career overseas in a few years. Two previous resourcing consultants are now permanent fee earning consultants enjoying successful careers in our Hong Kong and London offices and two are fee-earning consultants in Melbourne!

Working holiday visa holders should not apply unless they hold previous recruitment experience.
