Candidates

We provide opportunities for lawyers to reignite their legal careers after a career break or hiatus.  We know that traditional recruiters are reluctant to overlook a gap in someone’s CV. We do the opposite.  We can help by connecting you with employers who value what you have to offer. 

We have opportunities to return through direct placements or through membership of our unique, award winning Reignite Academy programme. 

“This is an incredible opportunity to get my city career back on track: everyone involved has been able to see beyond what looks like a strangely shaped CV and unusual career path. And yet for me, taking a break enabled me to come back stronger. I’m grateful for the chance and can’t wait to get started.”

We have opportunities to return through direct placements or through membership of our unique, award winning Reignite Academy programme. 

The Reignite Academy Programme

This flexible, development-focused programme matches lawyers with opportunities at one of our member firms.  Participants complete a fully supported fixed term (usually six months) period of paid training, coaching and work experience.  Part time and/or flexible working is considered for most of our roles. Our aim is to secure you a permanent role at the end of the six months.

“The main block to getting back was my lack of confidence.  Reignite helped me massively on that front with encouragement, support and practical advice”.

We currently have opportunities in London and the South East and in Birmingham.

Inclusive Recruitment

We have opportunities for candidates to fill open roles within private practice and in-house.  People going back into these roles after a career hiatus are provided with the full support of the Reignite team, including access to a personal coach and regular training opportunities.
