BCL Legal Conveyancing Survey Hints at Market Improvement

BCL Legal Conveyancing Survey Hints at Market Improvement

Azara Roger – consultant at BCL Legal – commented: “With all the changes currently happening within PI and Legal Aid, it is difficult to predict how many individuals will move from those areas into conveyancing as confidence continues to increase. The increased number of vacancies we are filling is really exciting for us as specialist recruiters for the conveyancing sector. Current salary levels are relatively static which we expect to remain for a while.”
