Increase in legal requirements in Luxembourg
Unsurprisingly, as financial services organisations continue to expand into new financial hubs to create a strong hold post Brexit, the demand for lawyers in Luxembourg is increasing.
Shortage of corporate lawyers
Law, unlike many other of the sectors making the move is less transferable. The nature of the work requires local expertise that cannot be acquired quickly. Luxembourg law also gives primacy to French over English and so brings with it a greater emphasis on language skills.
Shortage of specialist legal recruiters in Luxembourg
Luxembourg has historically been home to fewer specialist recruiters. Previously a smaller market, with a smaller volume of roles, recruiters had to be much more generalist.
Internationally, specialist recruiters have been slow on the uptake of recognising the potential in Luxembourg.
Reluctance of local candidates to work with international recruiters
With international recruiters’ previous lack of involvement, it’s unsurprising that candidates in Luxembourg have been reluctant to trust in their expertise.
