Searchflow’s recruitment drive promises to make lawyers’ lives easier

Less than a year after its acquisition by dmg information, SearchFlow is continuing to build with appointments of key senior personnel across the business.

In addition to the recent arrival of new managing director, John Pickford, SearchFlow is expanding its IT, customer service and marketing departments and delivering additional expertise through the account management team.

The recruitment of senior staff will ensure the business keeps delivering on its promise to make lawyers’ lives easier. Pickford, appointed managing director in August, is embarking on a two year programme of development aligned to strong market growth which will see SearchFlow redefine its service proposition and develop a bespoke suite of solutions for conveyancers.

Recruited earlier this year from Auto Trader, Adam Bullion, head of marketing, will also support this activity by driving forward the SearchFlow brand.

To support SearchFlow’s ongoing expansion, the technology development has been brought in-house, creating 38 new roles. This in-house capability will deliver a wider set of solutions, making the search process for conveyancers faster and more flexible.

SearchFlow has also created further roles across multiple functions including finance, service and sales all of which are designed to deliver best-in-class customer service.

“Our staff play a pivotal role in the way SearchFlow operates and we are committed to hiring the best people to support our clients,” says SearchFlow’s new HR manager Helen Marsh. “We are fast becoming an employer of choice ensuring we continue to attract and retain the most talented staff for our business.”

The skills shortage in law firms is the biggest threat to handling cybercrime

CLC Roundtable discussion at Malmaison Hotel, Charterhouse Square

The skills shortage in our businesses is the biggest threat to our industry when looking at cybercrime. Cybercriminals are not just after money but are looking for sensitive information too, so the legal services sector is an obvious target. In the last year we have had reports of around £7m of client money being lost to such crime. This is not an IT issue and it should not be left to the IT teams to sort out. It is a high-level responsibility and a board-level issue that must be taken seriously. We suspect that we will look back on 2016 and ask why we didn’t respond quicker.
