Join Us

Are you an established recruiter looking to join a prestigious business that has enjoyed impressive growth for many years? Or a lawyer seeking to leave practice but keen to stay within the legal sector in an exciting and fast-paced environment?

Our team does a mix of retained, exclusive and contingency hiring for many of the leading US, international and UK law firms in London and Sydney. We have unrivalled access to law firm decision makers and can often open doors which are closed to others.

Deacon offers a great platform, a friendly non-hierarchical culture, and a transparent and market-leading commission structure. Unlike many recruitment businesses, we are not target driven and have remained fiercely independent. We have one of the most respected brands in the legal recruitment market, and there are currently opportunities across our partner and associate businesses.

We are part of one of the largest independent owner-managed companies in the global legal recruitment sector, with a shared management team, common vision and values. We are therefore able to provide superb international and cross-referral opportunities for our consultants. Deacon focuses on placing partners and associates in London and Sydney, but our wider business covers international strategic recruitment (mergers, office openings and build-outs), associate moves around the globe, in-house, and interim. All our management team transact, leading by example.
