Flexible Working – The answer to your recruitment needs?

18th April 2016

An increasing number of law firms are now offering flexible working practices in a bid to recruit and retain conveyancers. This can take many forms such as part time working, term time working, job-shares, home-working, compressed hours and flexi-time.

The legal world has been slow to move to flexible working patterns, but difficulties in attracting experienced people and improvements in cloud based technology means the barriers have been reduced significantly.

Law firms and conveyancing practices particularly can benefit from:

  • Increased staff retention
  • Access to a wider pool of potential employees
  • Reduced absenteeism
  • Increased commitment from employees and improved productivity
  • Reduced office space requirement

At Interlink Recruitment we have been involved in recruiting conveyancing staff into roles for some of the largest conveyancing firms, who have now turned to flexible working to ensure they can continue to grow their capacity. With more pressure on parents in terms of childcare arrangements and parents heading back to work earlier than ever, firms looking to recruit must surely consider the alternatives to the 9-5 contract.

To find out more about how Interlink can make flexible working work for your business please contact Nick Carroll at Interlink recruitment on 0161 834 3889 or nick@interlinkrecruitment.com.

Additional penalties for AML failures announced

HMRC have announced they will now levy a Penalty Administration Charge in addition to any penalty imposed for failure to comply with anti-money laundering regulations. (more…)

What do ID documents tell us?

Customer Due Diligence (CDD), which forms part of Know Your Customer or KYC, is an important tool in the estate agent’s armoury when it comes to fulfilling their obligations under the Money Laundering Regulations. (more…)
