How did you come to work at Laurence Simons?
I applied back in the Spring of 2021, didn’t get the job initially, and joined an IT recruitment company. I was then back in contact with LS in January, went through the interview process again, and joined in March.
What does your role encompass?
When I joined Laurence Simons, my role was a hybrid between business support and talent acquisition, but as I write this, I have just moved fully into the talent acquisition team. As a member of the talent acquisition team, my role is focused on candidate curation, helping to search for the best candidates, presenting them to the consultant, and helping to manage them through the search process.
What projects are you currently working on?
In terms of searches, I am working on a role for a Senior Legal Counsel with a German-based packaging solutions company. We have also just completed a search for a Legal Counsel Europe with a Swedish, rare diseases company that specialises in treatment in the areas of hematology and immunology. I have also been involved in the General Counsel Study that we have been carrying out through our psychometric testing partner Lumina Learning.
Who do you work most closely with?
For searches, I work in a team with Angela Floydd, our CCO and Anu Malhotra, our Head of Business Support and Delivery, supporting them on all Swiss-based searches. More widely, I work closely with the business support and talent acquisition teams on day-to-day matters and we help each other with any ongoing projects.
What do you enjoy about your work?
I enjoy the collaborative, team approach that we have here at LS. I don’t come from a legal background so I have enjoyed being able to learn from the team how the recruitment process works differently within the legal sector.
