Dial L for legal jobs: Unlock your career

Cogence launches a refreshed website with a difference

On 17 June 2016 the London legal recruitment company quietly unveiled a new look to their website that includes a new approach to legal job search.

Land on Cogence Search's home page and you will find three dials of the variety found on a traditional safe. Each dial represents a fluid search facility, drawing its categorisation from available job titles, years of post-qualification experience, and location, respectively. Cogence invites you to have a 'twiddle' and create your own code to crack the next stage of your legal career. Of course, for those who feel twiddling is tantamount to unnecessarily fiddling, there is a traditional drop down search bar directly underneath the dials.

"It's a clever piece of coding," says Mark Husband, Managing Director. "The dials are fluid and intuitive, picking up every job title, PQE figure and location that we enter onto our recruitment management software, Broadbean. The dials only present the initials of jobs that are live, so if there are no Banking roles, for example, you won't find the letter B associated with the first dial. 

I had the idea for the dials a while ago, when we were thinking of ways in which to facilitate the search process. Cogence Search is a highly specialist legal search firm, only recruiting and headhunting for private practice roles - comparatively speaking, our target audience is not that large. We also have a strong emphasis on partner and lateral hires. Does a partner or senior associate really have time to fill in endless data capture forms? We didn’t think so. Thanks to our web developers and designers, The Paperface, who created the coding and enabled the interface to work on just about every conceivable device, the dials became a reality. We think they, together with our clean, precise, new look, fulfil pretty much all our audiences’ requirements for engagement.”
