Totum Partners has created comprehensive ‘How to guides’ to assist law and professional services firms in their search for critical leadership roles across business services functions. This premium content has been designed to enable you to consider all the facets of business services leadership recruitment in law and professional services firms, but also to ensure that profiles can be tailored to your specific requirements.

Guidance for leadership recruitment


In addition to providing valuable market insights, our guides (priced at £149 each) include detailed instructions on how to create and present compelling content to attract your ideal candidate.

We currently have guides covering the following job titles:

  • Chief Operating Officer
  • Chief Finance Officer

  • Chief Risk Officer
  • Chief Information Officer
  • HR Director
  • Director of Innovation

Whether you are recruiting for a replacement or you are recruiting for this position for the first time, we have placed many candidates into these roles, helping firms face stiff competition to secure the best candidates.

These guides can provide you with:

  • Guidance on information to share with candidates during the recruitment process, including an example job description, created by us and based on our first-hand experience of successful placements.
  • A template, with guidance instructions, for you to create a role entirely bespoke to your specific needs.
  • Valuable insights on reporting / firm structure for the role.
  • Advice on structuring the interview process to retain candidate interest, based on our established track record in law and professional services recruitment supporting all sizes of law firms in the UK and internationally.
  • Market intelligence on where to find candidates and what background and experience to expect.

Remuneration advice

We can also provide guidance on remuneration for these roles (priced at £149 each). Scoping out these critical leadership roles from scratch is time-consuming and difficult.
