Headhunter Legal Staffuncties

For the success of a leading law firm, the staff positions are just as important as the legal staff. That is why leading law firms work with Top of Minds for the recruitment of their non-legal professionals.

Top of Minds is the go-to recruitment agency for staff positions at leading law firms. Depending on the client’s wishes, we can introduce candidates from different backgrounds.

For most non-legals, the switch to a law firm is not self-evident. But when I explain why it is interesting, most of them are quickly convinced.

The battle for top candidates

The battle for top talent in the legal profession is fierce. When it comes to filling staff positions, the competition is even tougher. Good candidates are not only approached by law firms, but also by employers from other sectors. A combination of recruitment and selection is essential in order to hire the best people.


Marketing is essential for recruitment. The right message, perfect presentation, promotion via the right channels with the right frequency and above all: reaching the right target group. This is a marketing issue from the bottom up. That is why Top of Minds has an in-house marketing team. Our marketers ensure a well-filled pipeline of candidates.


Our consultants engage in an in-depth discussion with interested professionals to determine the match between candidates and offices. The combination of marketing and selection ensures the best people in the shortest possible time.

Our recruitment formula

Our 3 steps towards results
  • 1. Intake

    Quality candidates can be recruited with a good story. Based on an extensive intake with the hiring manager and other stakeholders, we determine the essence of the recruitment message.

  • 2. Vacancy marketing

    Then, thanks to our large network, we ensure that all relevant candidates are aware of your story and vacancy.

  • 3. Selection

    Once the long list of interested candidates has been drawn up, we will reduce it to a short list. We do this by means of an objective scorecard and in-depth interviews. Under our supervision, the top 3 will then be passed through a number of selection rounds within your organisation, after which we will facilitate the contract negotiations with the most suitable candidate. objectieve scorecard en diepte-interviews. De top-3 wordt vervolgens onder onze begeleiding door een aantal selectierondes binnen uw organisatie gehaald, waarna wij de contractonderhandelingen met de winnende kandidaat faciliteren.

I can make the crossover between Legal and the other sectors in which I am active. If professionalism and personal development appeal to you, then this sector could be a good fit.
