    A bit about us

    We’re an engaged and motivated multi-award winning team of 60+ that recruits talent into practically every conceivable area of law, at every level.

    We’re the only APSCo affiliated professional services recruiter to have an ISO9001 Quality Management System. Google it, it’s impressive! And hey, did we mention we’re also a Gold Standard, Investor in People? That puts us in the top 3% of IiP accredited businesses, globally.

    We don’t believe in over-complicating things. Everything we do at Douglas Scott is guided by these three simple principles…

    To make our customers happy, our competitors jealous, and our Mums proud.

    We do that by sticking to our guns and staying true to our values – which include enjoying what we do, and the company of the people we do it with.

    We reckon our employer brand is neatly wrapped up in these four parts of GO! Douglas Scott

    GO DO

    Let’s start with the day job. We promise to give you all the tools, training and support you need to do your job – brilliantly.

    GO FLY

    Through a personalised professional development plan that’s aligned to your career ambitions, we’ll help you map out your future at Douglas Scott and become the best you possible!


    We understand the importance of reward and recognition – and that it’s not just the money that’ll makes you happy. So we’ll help you define what success looks like to you, and together we’ll work towards making it happen.


    A massive part of what makes working at Douglas Scott so rewarding, is NOT working at Douglas Scott. We love what we do here, but it’s true… you can have too much of a good thing. So rather than work yourself into the ground – we’re all about working smarter, not longer – get your coat and go spend some quality time with your other half, your mates, your pet Pug, your Geordie Shores box set. Whatever floats your boat!
