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

Be careful you do not leave anything behind: will we see the end of chambers?

Charles Feeny

Experience of practice by digital support suggests that working practices will become much more informal and spontaneous, not requiring support by specific entities or even contractual arrangements. This is likely to be particularly true of the Bar, which is or should be a profession focusing on individuals. The future of the Bar is more likely to resemble a library as seen in Scotland and Ireland – albeit an electronic library – rather than the traditional chambers structure.
