With 2023 coming to a close, Legal News Wales invited Karen Jones, Director, TSR Legal for a fireside chat about the shape of the legal recruitment market, what’s changed in the last six months, and if she was right in thinking this year would be a ‘reset year’ for hiring across law firms in Wales.

Stream our free podcast now – an exclusive and candid roundup of what employers and candidates have learned about post-pandemic working realities, how hires and recruitment strategies have played out in 2023, and the impact this may have on hiring approaches as we head into 2024.

In light of the increased profile of the Welsh legal sector in light of growth during and since the pandemic, and the profile of Wales generally, Karen highlighted the importance of brand awareness for law firms in their bid to attract talent – in particular the complexity and diversity of legal work undertaken in Wales, client portfolios and opportunities for career development.

This podcast is ideal for anyone hiring into a legal practice or team, for HR and Talent managers in the legal sector and for anyone looking to move or enter the legal sector in Wales. Understand what turns a candidate’s head, how law firms are using the recruitment process and what employers might want to think about for the year ahead.
