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.

Case Study

A straightforward approach with a genuine expertise, providing you with a proven plan of exactly what you need to do to grow your firm.

I first stumbled across Nick when searching on Amazon for help growing a firm in the legal sector.

Straight away I was struck by his no-nonsense approach, so after checking out a preview of his book, I bought it on Kindle and started devouring it straight away.

What was immediately apparent was that Nick really does know what he’s talking about, which was hugely refreshing in an industry with plenty of bluffers and chancers.

I found the fact that Nick has actually been there and done it in the legal world very compelling indeed, and after finishing the book, I knew there was plenty he still had to teach me.

I booked a free call, which contained plenty of value, but what became clear is that if I was really going to get Nick’s personalised help to grow my firm, I needed to do it properly, so after speaking to a couple of Nick’s clients to reassure myself I was making the right decision, I took the plunge, and booked the Steady Stream of New Clients meeting.

And I’m so glad I did.

From the moment my wife Rachael and I arrived, Nick put us at complete ease and we quickly built up a strong rapport, and thanks to the pre-meeting preparation put in by all parties, we were able to wring a huge amount of value out of it, because most of the fact-finding had already been completed before the meeting began.

Consequently, the meeting was chockfull of useful, actionable information, and most importantly, that information was grounded on what actually works in the real world – no theory in sight.

When we left Bristol, we were hugely energised and excited; but more than that, we also had clarity, and three days later, things were even clearer, thanks to the report Nick prepared for us detailing exactly what marketing we needed to be doing AND how to make sure that that marketing was actually implemented.

Having used a consultant in the past, my biggest fear was that there’d be a lot of talking around the issues, and a whole lot more questions than answers, but that simply isn’t how Nick works.

Instead, he calls a spade a spade, and fuses that straightforward approach with a genuine expertise, providing you with a proven plan of exactly what you need to do to grow your firm.

If you’re considering booking one of Nick’s Steady Stream of New Clients meetings, I would say, unhesitatingly, that you need to go for it”
