What’s more, the findings, which compared job market data from Q2 2019 with the same period last year, found that average pay in the legal industry increased by 2.4% In fact, salaries rose from £33,593 in Q2 2018, to £34,414 in Q2 2019.

Lee Biggins, founder and CEO of CV-Library comments on the findings: “Candidate confidence is picking up and it’s fantastic to see professionals react to the UK jobs boom – particularly within the legal industry. The market has certainly been mixed this year, but it’s clear that the delay in Brexit has prompted many professionals to consider looking for a new job.”

“At the same time, salaries are rising and while money isn’t everything when it comes to job satisfaction, if you’re keen to earn a higher wage then moving jobs within the legal field could well be your best bet. This is because businesses are desperately trying to attract more people to their roles and have no choice but to push up their pay packets in order to do so.”
