Some gaps in your business capability are clear and self-evident. Others are less so.

The Amelia Bond Strategic direction service helps you to identify skills gaps within your current team or within your overall provision of services. As specialists in recruitment for the legal profession, we are expert in identifying skills gaps.

Once you have a clear and objective view of your needs, we’ll help you to identify the talent you need to meet the challenge.

Ideally, you’ll be planning 12 months to 3 years in advance of where your next business development will be. And, in a perfect world, you’d have a 3-5 year plan in place to guide your thinking.

If you don’t already have those sort of timescales in mind, we can help you to formulate your plans and clarify your strategic direction.
