Recruitment Agency

Helping you find the right legal talent for your firm

Looking to hire? Heat is a legal recruitment agency helping law firms secure top talent in a competitive market. Our legal recruitment team is committed to helping you expand your firm by providing the best and most suitable legal talent on a permanent, locum or contract basis. We help you identify hard-to-find talent, manage the recruitment process and ensure that you welcome new hire(s) on board, quickly and easily.


Step 1: Identify your talent needs

Whether you’re looking for a solicitor in a specific practice area, a partner to lead the business or a paralegal or support professional, Heat Legal Recruitment can support you across a variety of specialisms including:


– Case handlers and paralegals

– Legal executives

– Solicitors and lawyers

– Partners and directors

– Support staff

– Other legal roles

Step 2: Submit a vacancy

Whether you’re looking for temporary cover or a permanent employee, remote working or office-based, our legal recruitment agency consultants will help you choose the right legal hiring or resourcing option to fit your unique needs. We will listen and advise, looking to understand and uncover your firm’s unique culture to find you the right match.

Step 3: Let us do the heavy lifting

Many of our consultants have formal legal training or even worked in the field, making us ideally positioned to identify the right legal talent to add to your bench. Our deep networks mean we can access talent that is not actively searching for roles.


Within 3 to 5 days, you will receive a candidate shortlist and based on your preferences, we will organise interviews conducted either on-site or via video interview. All of our candidates are pre-screened and selected based on technical, commercial and soft skills.

Step 4: Welcome your new legal hire to the firm

In a competitive market, speed to hire is essential. Delay the process too long and your preferred choice may receive competing offers. We will work with you to manage your hiring, ensuring your recruitment process is efficient and conducive to welcoming the best legal talent on board – generally within a month!

“I have worked with Heat Recruitment for almost two years and the main reason that our relationship is so successful – 18 placements in that time – is because they take the time to understand our organisation, the specific needs of the roles we are seeking to fill and the underlying culture within the business.”

HR Manager, Watson Ramsbottom Limited

“In order to achieve our ambitious growth plans we need to partner with the best legal recruitment organisations across the UK. Given the scale of our growth and national resourcing requirements, Heat Legal quickly expanded their coverage in their search for the best conveyancing talent and have proven to be very successful in doing so.”
