“We are busy….but hiring is on hold! Help!”

This is a familiar refrain we are hearing from clients during this uncertain time. We can help! We have infrastructure and processes in place to handle temporary/contract placements and can seamlessly facilitate getting you the help you need now.
In conjunction with our permanent search business, we are uniquely positioned to recruit exceptional candidates and to identify, screen and staff short and long term attorney and paralegal projects.

For those of you who have not tried temporary or temp-to-perm arrangements, here are a few important things to know:

  • Cost Savings – Whether your company or firm is in a hiring freeze or you just need extra help for an uncertain period, a temporary hire can offer substantial savings. Depending on the level of experience and specialization you need, the hourly cost of hiring a paralegal can range from $50-$90 and for an attorney, $60-$150. As contractors become W-2 employees of McCormack Schreiber throughout temporary assignments, there are also no additional payroll obligations for our clients.
  • Speed – We are able to staff projects very quickly – often within a day or days of working with you on an assignment. We have an extensive database of candidates in virtually every practice area.
  • Screened and Exceptionally Qualified Candidates – An enormous benefit of being part of a large permanent search business is the high level of screening we are able to perform for temporary search, as well as the unique caliber of our candidates. The vast majority of our candidates have practiced in highly regarded law firms and sophisticated corporate environments. In our experience, it is not unusual for our clients to be so happy with a temporary hire that they transition the attorney/paralegal to a permanent role.

We are happy to schedule a time to answer any questions you may have about your specific needs. Please feel free to contact Amy McCormack directly at 312-925-6426 or amy@thelawrecruiters.com.
