Having just returned from the UK, I am excited to announce that during my trip, I met up with and secured a recruitment partnership with a leading specialist legal recruitment team in London. This partnership marks a significant milestone for Tyler Wren as we expand our reach and capabilities in offering legal job opportunities across the UK.

The London-based team we have partnered with boasts an impressive portfolio of clients, including Top Tier, Mid Tier, US, and International Law Firms. Their extensive network and deep understanding of the legal landscape in the UK make them an ideal partner for Tyler Wren. Together, we are now well-positioned to provide a wide array of legal job opportunities in major UK cities such as London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Birmingham, Manchester, and beyond.

Diverse Opportunities Across the UK – To name a few

London: The legal hub of the UK, London is home to some of the world’s most prestigious law firms. Opportunities here range from corporate law to niche practice areas, offering unparalleled career growth prospects.

Edinburgh and Glasgow: These Scottish cities are known for their strong legal sectors, particularly in financial services and dispute resolution. The demand for legal professionals in these regions continues to grow, providing exciting career paths.

Birmingham: As one of the UK’s largest legal markets outside London, Birmingham offers a wealth of opportunities in various legal sectors.

Manchester: Known for its thriving legal community, Manchester is an attractive destination for legal professionals seeking roles.

Current Hot Spots and Job Opportunities

There is a high demand for New Zealand and Australian Qualified Lawyers with experience in:





Those Lawyers with over three years of experience who can demonstrate complex experience ideally from a large firm can expect great job prospects. More opportunities also exist for those who will be flexible about their location of choice. 

If you are open to contract job opportunities there are many opportunities to work on large, complex class actions and litigation projects. These roles require excellent discovery and document review skills and Lawyers with 1 – 4 years of litigation experience will be considered for these roles.

Market Outlook and Future Prospects

With a recent change in government, our London-based recruitment partner predicts an upturn in the legal jobs market in the last quarter of the year. This optimistic outlook is driven by anticipated economic policies and regulatory changes that are expected to stimulate growth and create new opportunities within the legal sector. They expect to see a demand for Lawyers across the board including M&A, Banking & Finance, Commercial, Property and Regulatory as well as a continued need in the sectors listed above.

2022 saw extremely high numbers of job registrations for legal job opportunities in London – it was a rockstar year for legal recruitment. In comparison, 2023 was a lack-luster year but there have been many more positive signs for 2024 especially for the last quarter. We are seeing job registrations close to those numbers in 2022 and June 2024 surpassing June 2022. A great sign for the 2nd half of this year. Job registrations across all areas of specialism are up on 2023 figures.

This exciting new partnership marks a significant step forward for Tyler Wren in our mission to connect talented legal professionals with leading law firms across the UK. This is something that we have been working on for some time due to our network’s feedback and the traditional “right of passage” of Kiwis and Aussies leaving to enjoy the typical O.E.

Whether you are looking to advance your career in London or explore opportunities in other major UK cities, Tyler Wren is here to support you every step of the way. Stay tuned for more updates and opportunities as we continue to grow and expand our presence in the UK legal recruitment market.
