Job Description
The Company


Established in 1989, Barclay Simpson is a privately owned recruitment firm with specialist divisions covering:


- Legal

- Compliance

- Risk

- Treasury

- IT and cyber security

- Audit


From our offices in London and New York, we work with businesses across financial services, commerce & industry, and professional services throughout Europe, Middle East and North America.


Our services include executive search, contingent perm, interim and salary benchmarking.



The Division


This role sits in the Legal & Compliance division which have merged as of 2018. Compliance was established in 2001 and Legal was established in 2008. Over the last few years both have been 2 of the biggest billing teams globally.


The Legal & Compliance team is currently 6 strong with 3 focused on the legal side. The legal team recruits from NQ up to GC level with average fees amongst the highest in the company. As a business we have an established presence in the commerce space already, so there are several warm relationships to further develop.


We recruit for the likes of Royal Mail, BT, Vodafone, Heathrow and many others.


This desk will recruit across all areas of legal, regulatory compliance and governance (Company Secretarial etc.) across the commerce sector.


The team is looking to expand over the next 12 months with budget for 3-4 additional hires so this an excellent time to join.



The Role


The role will be based in the London office and will report into the Head of the Division. We are looking to hire this role at Senior Consultant grade and it is a new hire being driven by market demands.  The role will see the person joining being given a mix of warm accounts as well as an area to develop.


Commerce is a developing market with some genuinely warm relationships but there is a need to further develop this market. This role will work alongside this year’s top global biller who works on legal and last year’s top UK biller on the compliance side.


The role will require a mix of account management for some of the larger accounts that will form part of the desk and business development to bring on more work. There are good clients but the business recognises there is work to be done.  The billing expectation for year one would be in the £100-120,000 region, with year 2 moving to £180,000+. Considering the market size and current conditions, there is a realistic expectation of billing north of £240,000 fairly quickly.


The focus of the desk will initially be billing only but as we grow the market, the hope would be to grow a team under this role so management is very possible in the future.



The Candidate


This will be a Senior Consultant level hire and we are ideally looking for someone with previous experience of recruiting legal and/or compliance professionals within commerce, although other disciplines within the commerce sector would be considered.


To be successful in this desk it is vital you have experience of running a 360 desk and are comfortable dealing with both existing candidates & clients as well as developing new relationships.


We need someone who is motivated, engaged and able to quickly hit the ground running but can provide training on most technical areas of the job.
