Why it's worth using a recruiter

At AJ Fox Compliance, we're all about careers, not just jobs. Some recruiters give us all a bad name, but we're dedicated to building incredible relationships within our network and being there for our candidates, now, and in the future.

Here's what we can do for you!

1. We'll save you time

Our job is to know who's hiring, when, and why. Save yourself hours searching the internet for roles that may not be right for you, and let us do the leg work. We've got the contacts at the firms you want to work at, so we know when they're hiring before the job boards do. We'll move quickly to get your CV to the top of the pile and seen by the right people at the right time.

2. We've got the contacts

We know our market, so working with us is a great way to advance your career by getting in front of the firms you really want to work for. We know the people working in the Risk & Compliance department, as well as the HR and recruitment staff, so we've got insights about what they're looking for and why. If there are specific firms, or kinds of firms, you aspire to work for, just let us know and we'll help you get there.

3. We'll advocate for you

We'll speak up on your behalf. We'll do everything we can to get you the first interview, the second, and ultimately, the job! We'll get to know you, your experience and your strengths so that we can advocate for you during the hiring process. We've got your back.

4. We'll solve problems

If the firm has a problem or a hesitation about your application, we're well placed to talk them through any questions or worries they may have. We'll explain any gaps on your CV to reassure them, and we'll go into detail about why we think you're worth interviewing. You just don't get this chance with a direct application! You would be amazed how many 'no's we turn to 'yes'.

5. We know Law Firm Risk & Compliance

If this is your chosen career path, there's no-one better placed to help you advance and succeed in this space. We've been working in this area for many years, and we know the ins and outs of every firm and every role, so we can help you decide what's best for you. We work with a network of thousands of Risk & Compliance professionals and with law firms across the whole of the UK as well as internationally. We know this space better than anybody else and can help you to plan your long term career path.

6. We are here for your long-term career

We're not just here for a quick hire, we want to invest in your long term career goals. We'll advise what qualifications could help you advance (and even offer a discount on ICA courses!), we'll help you get the most out of your current role and encourage you to explore all opportunities available within your current firm to set you up for the next step on your career ladder. As much as we'll want to hear all about your experience to date, we also want to know your future aspirations, whether you want to travel or buy a home in your current city, what's important to you in your future job roles and the firms you'll work at, and who you are as a person. All this information will allow us to help you plan for your future, and let us know how we can help you get there.
