How To Land Your Dream Legal Job As A Solicitor, Legal Executive, Paralegal UK.

Are You Looking For A New Dream Legal Job? Are You A Solicitor, Legal Executive (Or Trainee), Paralegal Or Seeking Your First Position In The Law?

How To Land Your Dream Legal Job As A Solicitor, Legal Executive, Paralegal UKFirst, let me start by explaining my background. I am Nick Jervis. I now run my full time law firm marketing consultancy, but this was my career before doing this:

  1. Trainee legal executive;
  2. Legal Executive
  3. Solicitor

You should also know, as it is relevant to this article, that I was offered a job for every interview that I attended in my 14 years in the law.

Landing My First Job As A Trainee Legal Executive

I had absolutely no experience in the legal world when I decided, aged 21 and having spent some time travelling and enjoying life, to enter the law.

I scoured the legal papers but did not see one job advertised for a trainee legal executive, so I decided to take matters into my own hands. I decided that if I was going to land my dream legal job I would have to take control of the matter.

I researched firms that I liked the look of, created a list of 65, then I hand wrote 65 personalised letters to each of them. This led to one job interview and one job offer (more followed later but I accepted the first one).

65 letters, one job and now as I am still effectively working in the legal industry, the blood, sweat and tears for that early research and letter writing have paid me back handsomely.

The good news for you is that you do not have to work quite this hard, or hard at all really for that matter.

With LinkedIn and law firm websites, it should be a breeze for you to identify firms that you would like to work for and to create tailored approach that is almost certain to lead to a job offer.

Nick is a fountain of knowledge, tried and tested personally. He has that rare gift of not making you feel daft for asking any question. After our consultation I felt far less like a rabbit in the headlights and far more empowered to climb the marketing mountain successfully.

Having implemented a raft of improvements to our website and marketing campaigns suggested in Nick’s excellent books, I decided to contact the man himself for a one-to-one discussion.

The thirty minutes spent with Nick on that video call provided me with more business improvement tools than I could’ve hoped for. Nick even took the time to give me some insights on client conversion particular to our area of practice.

Online reviews are often brimming with trite phrases and hyperbole, but I cannot find any other way of saying that my only regret is that I didn’t contact Samson Consulting sooner.
