About

FRRW LEGAL RECRUITMENT provides specialized legal recruitment services. Simon is an Industrial Psychologist and Shana is an admitted attorney and leads this unit. Our clients include small and major law firms, multinational and South African corporations. We cater for all legal roles including practice, mining, finance and competition law.

Although based in Melrose Arch in Johannesburg, we have successfully served clients across South Africa and internationally. Applicants working with FRRW Legal Recruitment have the benefit of interacting with a Consultant who has specialized expertise and understanding of legal careers. This makes it possible to say that our recruiting process offers a ‘two way street’ as the applicant receives valuable feedback whilst she or he entrusts their career to us. Recruiting professional legal people is a delicate process, when it involves leaving a current position for another. We develop long term relationships with attorneys.

There are a number of people we have helped in an early stage of their career who have grown to use our services as employers. Living in an ever-growing technological environment has meant that recruitment has altered over the past 20 years and we utilize the tools that have emerged. What has not changed is the need to foster relationships so that our applicants feel like people and not blips on a computer screen.

The post apartheid era has presented difficulties in normalizing the legal job market. There are signs that this is happening. Regardless of race, there is a shortage of the talented attorneys needed for many sophisticated legal roles. FRRW Legal Consulting is fortunate to be able to say that we have been able to find good attorneys to assist clients in meeting employment quotas.

FRRW has recruited for all legal roles and levels including legal advisors, legal counsel, litigation and commercial attorneys, banking and compliance experts.
