Welcome to the autumn issue of Totum’s dedicated finance newsletter. We are delighted in this issue to announce the publication of our latest research - into recruitment trends in business services. We collected data on business services roles advertised in the legal sector from 2016 to 2018, using that to track trends across different business services disciplines. Our findings show just how far business services as a whole have come in law during that time. But for finance, the research also shows the increasingly strategic role that finance professionals now play in helping to drive the business of law forwards. With interviews and our usual job spotlight, we hope you find this update useful, and welcome any feedback on topics you would like to hear from us in future.
