Simply Law Jobs produced the job seeker annual report 2018-19 that analyses data collected about job seekers in the legal industry. In this article, we will highlight some features of this highly anticipated report.

Let’s find out more about where the jobs have been posted over the last year and locations where we saw growth.

The South-east of the country is in the lead followed by London.

Salary, location and flexible working are the most desirable attributes for the job seekers. The reasons why people change jobs usually include career progression, looking for a new challenge or a higher salary.
