Making the move over to becoming a Locum is a daunting thought for most who consider the prospect. Taking the leap from a guaranteed job to a contract that may last for 1 week to two years often causes candidates to raise concerns on the stability and security of working as a Locum. Within the last few years’ Service Care Legal have seen their Locum candidate database rise significantly indicating that more legal professionals are choosing a more flexible, rewarding and fast paced approach to working in the legal sector.

The need for temporary legal professionals is in high demand whether it is in Private Practice or Public Sector and year on year the requirements for Locums are coming through thick and fast. Our consultants at Service Care Legal are always on hand to offer their specialist advice in assisting with your career change.

The benefits of becoming a locum differ for each individual and our consultants recognise the importance of making sure we get it right for your career. The benefits include;

• Better Work / Life Balance: If you are a parent, semi-retired or have other commitments choosing temporary contracts can offer you the option to fit work around your personal circumstances to provide a better work life balance.

• Earn More: Being paid as a locum is financially rewarding as it is commonly known that the temporary market pays better than permanent. Whilst most candidates worry that you could find yourself out of a contract, most of our locums finish a contract and go straight onto the next.

• Your Career: Working as a Locum in Public Sector or Private Practice will undoubtedly give you access to gaining new experience and knowledge in either the sector you specialise in or a brand new sector you gain exposure too.
