Legal jobs Wales

The legal market in Wales is heavily dominated by Cardiff as the capital and cultural hub of the country. There is a strong local firm presence in the region as you’d expect, but a good selection of the UK’s largest law firms also boast an office there too. This means there is a good selection of sought-after legal jobs in Wales to apply for. Whether you are Welsh legal professional looking for your next step on the ladder or seeking a return to the country having forged your legal career in London or elsewhere in the UK, then our team can help.

There are substantial lifestyle benefits to choosing the likes of Cardiff over London, including house prices, more free time and shorter commutes. Despite this, there is still the chance of good career progression if securing a role in the right firm. Speak to our regional specialist recruiters who can guide you through the lesser-known intricacies of what it is like to live and work in the country, as well as pair you with the perfect opportunity at the ideal firm when it arises.
