Which sourcing channels work best for the Legal sector?

When we look at how Legal recruiters are approaching talent attraction the Sourcing Quadrant shows us those channels which are working best to deliver quality and quantity of candidates. Professional Social Networks stand out as the leader on quality and quantity combined. Employee Referrals stand out for quality of candidates. Recruiters in this sector are having success with events, ATS/CRM and agencies too. 

Having a great careers site is one of the ways that can attract a decent quantity and quality of candidates, yet falls a little short in the Legal sector, despite being used by over 85% in the sector. Candidate experience is key and can work to nurture relationships and make successful hires.

It's important that all involved in the recruitment process have access to simple, streamlined tools that allow them to recruit on the go. That's why, with Eploy - as well as getting an award winning legal Applicant Tracking System, you get a dedicated hiring manager portal and agency portal that's so easy to use and provides a unified platform for recruiting (and measuring).
