Meet the team

Rebecca Ellis


Rebecca is a director with operational responsibilities across Totum's divisions, including marketing & business development (BD), HR and finance.

In addition, she maintains a recruitment consultant role within the marketing & BD team, focusing on manager to ‘head of’ levels, and across both generalist and specialist roles. Typical assignments include heads of business development, BD managers, PR & media relations managers, marketing and client relationship managers. She also has expertise in new and emerging roles in areas including project management, change, process and strategy management.

Rebecca cares deeply about the law firms and candidates she works with. She believes that investing in relationships for the long-term is the hallmark of success – not least because it is the best way to effectively manage the huge variety of assignments she undertakes. She seeks to genuinely help, providing her honest views, and only recommending candidates that she believes will make a good fit.

She has been immersed in the legal sector for over 15 years, giving her deep understanding of the market and the opportunities it can offer. She makes the most of this, sharing her insights and expertise to deliver the best possible service to law firms and candidates alike.

Prior to joining Totum, Rebecca worked for Carter Murray, setting up its professional services marketing recruitment team and managing it for over six years. Before that, she was a consultant at Chambers & Partners where for four years she recruited into the legal sector. She has been a consultant with Totum since 2010.
