What is LOD?

LOD is the leading flexible legal service provider across several locations in the UK, Asia, Australia and America. We are both changing the way in which clients buy legal services and providing talented lawyers with a new way of working.

We’ve achieved some of the fastest growth in our sector by creating and leading a new professional service category. That growth continues as we launch new services, responding to the way our lawyers want to work and clients want to engage them. This role offers an opportunity to be part of this story.

LOD has caught the imagination of the changing legal marketplace for ‘new law’ services. We now have a team of around 600 lawyers and consultants of the highest quality working with an inspiring client list from globally recognised multinationals to start-ups.

We run LOD with that in mind for our lawyers and for our clients.

  • Managing talent pools: Proactively managing existing talent pools and working with the recruitment and engagement management teams to ensure we have a strong understanding of the experience, availability, and fit of those lawyers for live assignments. You’ll play a key role in giving teams across the business visibility of who we have available and keeping the lawyers updated on opportunities they’re being considered for.
  • Recruitment advertising: Writing detailed, creative and informative advertising to sell LOD as a concept as well as to attract specific lawyers for current and future needs. Proactively sourcing LODs on Linkedin using a fully provisioned recruiter licence.
  • Strategic projects: Leading or supporting on strategic recruitment projects such as marketing and advertising campaigns, reengagement initiatives and developing new talent pipelines. Also continually reviewing and refining the LOD recruitment process and systems that support it.

  • A curious personality and open mind to thrive, learn and engage in an entrepreneurial team and find solutions to difficult problems.
  • A genuine interest in the changing legal market and in ensuring that our LOD lawyers and clients receive the best possible experience throughout their dealings with us.
  • A wish to develop long-term relationships with lawyers and clients, taking the time to do so.
