    The In-house team at Douglas Scott has over 20 years combined experience and as a team we provide quality and bespoke recruitment solutions to both businesses looking to grow their In-house legal teams, and legal professionals looking for their next move in commerce and industry. 

    Key to our success is our values and ethical approach; we pride ourselves on nurturing effective yet honest relationships with both our clients and candidates. Put simply, people enjoy working with us. We recognise the invaluable importance of taking the time to fully understand the culture and wider objectives of our clients. By getting under a company’s skin and understanding what makes it tick, we are able to match candidates not only by skill set and experience but also by the best possible cultural fit.

    Our clients appreciate the fact that we’re able to offer services that our competitors can’t, whether it be directly related to their recruitment campaigns such as bespoke branded advertising, or other value added services such as our monthly newsletter and legal updates, annual salary survey, or the numerous events we facilitate for the In-house community throughout the year.
