More to Law than London
Recent TotallyLegal job inventory level data indicates that whilst the number of legal vacancies in London and the South East has declined slightly, there has been a notable rise in jobs in the Northern regions.
Our reports showed a significant annual increase in legal jobs in regions such as the East Midlands (+50%), Yorkshire and the Humber (+32%), Scotland (+21.5%) and North West England (+21%).
The UK job market on the whole has experienced a similar shift, according to the KPMG and REC Report. There has been a decline in permanent appointments in London and South East England, whilst job vacancies in the North have seen a modest increase.
There was also a marked rise in temporary roles in the North of England, contrasting with a decline in temporary positions in the South.
London may be the capital, but it is not the be all and end all for legal careers.
