Following a sustained period of growth and expansion, law firm Weightmans has announced plans to significantly increase the size of its marketing team.

The fast growing top 50 firm is creating 12 new positions at manager, executive and assistant level.  The new roles cover Bids / Tenders, Business Development, CRM, Database, Digital, Internal Comms and PR.

Commenting on the recruitment drive, Sarah-Jane Howitt, Director of Marketing said:

“The new roles all present an opportunity to play an important part in the ongoing development of an award-winning, forward-thinking law firm.  Two key strands of our strategy are focused on our clients and our profile in our chosen markets. The Marketing team plays a central role in driving the firm forward in these areas, working day to day with the Board and senior partners to deliver the strategy.

Added Sarah-Jane:

“It is absolutely essential that the structure and make-up of our team reflects the strategic direction of the firm and this expansion is in keeping with this.”

The new roles will be based in Liverpool and London, but travel will be required across the firm’s network of UK offices.  The closing date for applications is 16 August 2013.   For further details please visit www.weightmans.com

If the recent furore about McKenzie Friend Marketplace shows anything, it is that the profession remains acutely sensitive to the apparent threat of competition by unregulated entrants into the legal landscape. But for an outside observer, the whole McKenzie Friend debate remains curiously overblown: if not a storm in a teacup, a storm at least in a teapot. For all the characteristic sturm und drang of the Law Society’s response to last year’s senior judiciary consultation, there was pretty widespread agreement among most respondents that McKenzie Friends are here to stay.
