The “R” words that Monty Edge love

The “R” words that Monty Edge love

So, we are fast approaching the mid-point of 2024, how time flies! Over the last 12 months, we have noticed a significant change in the way that organisations approach their resourcing, and as the talent market continues to evolve, at Monty Edge, we are always speaking with lawyers in the market that fall into one of the R categories;

I’m talking about lawyers who are coming from the following scenarios:

  • Retirement;
  • Restructure;
  • Resigned;
  • Redundancy; or
  • Return to work.

We are regularly speaking with lawyers from all the above categories, and we love chatting with these lawyers, as every single lawyer in the above category offers something unique, and of value, and are the perfect lawyers for contract/ temp roles!

Returning to the workforce after a hiatus, resuming work post-retirement or redundancy, or seeking new opportunities after resigning can pose challenges. Regardless of the reason for the break, it’s common to feel uncertain about re-entering the job market and finding fulfilling employment.

At Montgomery Edge, we empathise with the apprehensions lawyers face when rejoining the workforce. Over the years, we’ve assisted numerous professionals who took career breaks for various reasons, guiding them through the job market to secure rewarding contract roles.

A frequent concern among lawyers is the relevance of their skills after a hiatus. It’s natural to question this, especially after an extended absence. However, it’s important to recognise that many employers value the experience and knowledge you bring. While your skills may need updating, with the right approach and training, you can swiftly regain momentum.

A beneficial strategy we recommend for easing your return to work is engaging in shorter-term contracts or temporary roles. These opportunities allow you to gain experience, expand your network, and explore different roles without committing to a permanent position. Moreover, many employers seek contract workers to fulfil immediate project needs, creating a high demand for skilled professionals.

At Montgomery Edge, we specialize in assisting lawyers in finding suitable contract and permanent roles aligned with their preferences and needs. We understand the challenges of returning to work and offer support throughout the process. Whether it’s refining your resume, preparing for interviews, or identifying job opportunities, we’re dedicated to helping you succeed.
