Work For Us

Time for a change?

Are you a lawyer seeking to leave practice but keen to stay within the legal sector in an exciting and fast-paced environment? Or are you an established recruiter looking to join a prestigious business that has enjoyed impressive growth for many years? Based in the heart of the City, we offer 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 London legal recruitment market, and there are currently opportunities across our business.

Deacon Search focuses on senior appointments. By placing partners and teams in leading UK and US firms, we have recruited for some of the biggest names in the City. We are looking for driven individuals who are committed to legal recruitment to join our team. Ideally you will have existing recruitment experience, but more importantly, you will be a high achiever with focus and ambition.

If you feel you have the drive and gravitas necessary to be successful at partner recruitment, please call Paul Deacon on 020 7332 2699 or email for a confidential chat.

Deacon Associates is a leading legal recruitment boutique with a successful track record of placing quality lawyers into top City law firms. If you are an existing recruiter, free yourself from a culture of targets and KPIs and join a business where you can realise your potential. Alternatively, if you are a qualified lawyer looking for a new direction but still within the legal sector, we can provide a bespoke introduction to the world of recruitment and help you kick start an exciting new career.

If you are interested in hearing more or would like to recommend someone, please call Gemma Deacon on 020 7332 2699 for a confidential chat or email
