​Lancashire County Council entrusted us with their Locum Public Health Contracts and Procurement Lawyer position, based on our reputation as a specialist recruitment provider of high-calibre legal candidates. Their managed vendor supplier had been unable to supply for several weeks, meaning a successful outcome at pace was critical.

Priorities supported:

  • Secure a Contracts and Procurement Lawyer with relevant experience dealing with public health legislation

  • Partner with an established recruitment consultancy recognised for their expertise in Legal recruitment

  • Establish an alternative delivery route to the managed vendor to guarantee a successful outcome

Experience applied:

  • Appreciating the urgent nature of this requirement, we immediately approached known talent and requested recommendations from the wider Venn Group Public Sector Legal Team.

  • Having been requisitioned on Thursday, we worked out of hours and over the weekend to keep the recruitment process moving at pace

  • Knowing the value of this sought-after expertise, we employed our market knowledge to actively approach candidates who were nearing or recently concluding their current assignments

Outcomes delivered:

  • Successfully placed the position within five working days, utilising out-of-hours availability to expedite the process

  • Securing the appropriate expertise for this position prompted the MV to reassess their suppliers for specialised roles, leading them to extend an invitation for us to establish a formal agreement

“Cristina has been very supportive, personable and with a facilitative attitude to the placement. Her positivity and personality comes across well through her correspondence which resulted in strong working relationships being created.”
