Our database of candidates are responsive, we know them better than a recruiter ever could. That’s because we network, converse and engage with each other regularly.

What is the difference between active and passive candidates?
Active candidates are individuals who are actively searching for new employment opportunities. Passive candidates are individuals who may not be actively searching for new employment but are open to considering new opportunities as they become available.
If you post a job advertisement on a website like Seek, you’ll only access a very small segment of the active candidate market. If you’re looking to find high quality candidates, the power lies within accessing the passive candidate market, however, chances are they are not actively searching job sites and are totally unaware of the advertised role at your firm or organisation.
If you’re trying to fill a position, doesn’t it make sense to shortlist from the widest possible candidate pool?
This is what makes Brietley London so effective at supplying high quality legal candidates. We communicate regularly with our members and network, and have a current database of active and passive candidates that we can access quickly.
