The Co-operative Legal Services (CLS) launches the largest recruitment drive in its history. 17/01/2012
CLS, which last week applied to become an alternative business structure, is looking to appoint up to 150 new positions across the business as it continues its expansion in the consumer legal services market.
The majority of the positions will be at its Bristol operation while others will be based at its new family law unit in London.
‘We have ambitious plans for our business and we want people with ambitions to match. The Legal Services Act will change the way in which legal services are delivered in England and Wales and we are going to be playing a leading role in the new era,’ says Eddie Ryan, managing director at CLS.
CLS offers a range of legal services including: personal injury claims; will writing; probate and estate administration; conveyancing and employment law. In November 2011 it also announced that it would enter the family law marker later this year.
‘The Co-operative Legal Services is part of the Co-operative Group with an excellent reputation as an employer which really invests in its employees, offers attractive terms and provides competitive salaries and an attractive pension provision,’ said Jenny Beck, head of Professional Practice in the family law unit.
‘We will be offering the right people a chance to enhance their career with a fast growing, dynamic employer,’ she added.
At the start of 2012 the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) began accepting ABS licence applications, with the Co-op confirming that it is among a raft of early applicants.
