Douglas Scott Legal Recruitment has expanded its Birmingham office with the appointment of Abid Sadiq, a former BBC journalist. The appointment is in response to the increasing demand for legal talent from law firms throughout the east and west midlands and southwest England.
Prior to joining Douglas Scott, Abid worked for the BBC for over four years before moving into recruitment with Reed. He will join Dante Friend and David Burgess in recruiting in the Midlands. “We’re delighted to welcome Abid to the team,” says Dante. “His experience working in the world of journalism means he is very calm when faced with tight deadlines and he has great people skills, so he’s ideally suited to our friendly yet fast-paced office.”
“The team at Temple Row is now four strong and plays an integral role in our nationwide operation,” says company MD Kath Riley. “Our network is now strong all over the UK and we will be making further appointments in regional offices as we continue to grow.”
Douglas Scott’s head office is in Manchester and it also has offices in London, Liverpool and Leeds.
