Locum roles are not for everybody, they are less secure (i.e. not a permanent contract), but do (typically) have a higher hourly rate and afford flexibility. Locum roles are not for legal professionals who need the absolute security of a monthly income, it's more of a lifestyle choice, with many Locums working only 7-8 months each year.

If you’d like to discuss any aspect of becoming a Locum call us today on any of the phone numbers listed below, or email our recruitment agency at enl@enllegal.co.uk, we would love to be of service to you.
