Our partner, Simply Law Jobs, has released its Year in Review for 2020.

The review provides a comprehensive overview of the impact of Covid-19 on the industry, specifically how it affected employment within the sector.

The legal industry faced one of its biggest challenges when a global pandemic forced the UK into a national lockdown in March 2020. The unprecedented amount of disruption shook up a seemingly calm legal recruitment marketplace.

The monthly average number of jobs posted to Simply Law Jobs in 2020 was 5,328, a 60% decrease from 2019.
Key findings reveal how 65% of professionals were worried about their future in law.

The report also uncovered the challenges of searching for a job during a global pandemic and how priorities have changed as a result of the events in 2020.

From an interview of 138 legal professionals in December 2020, 64% claimed their priorities had changed. The top three reasons as to why include searching for a better work/home balance, the lowering of salary expectations and the willingness to branch out into other sectors to secure employment.
