In 5 easy steps tell us what talent you need, and when you need it. We’ll sort the rest.

At SJP we have a proud track record of supporting law firms and organisations over the last 10 years with outstanding legal talent. We’re now leveraging our renowned recruitment abilities in conjunction with our intuitive new technology to launch an innovative online platform.

SJP On Demand combines the skills and expertise of a UK market-leading legal recruitment team, with the flexibility and convenience of a mobile-friendly online platform for all your short-term hiring needs.

1. Who are you looking to hire?

We are proud to work with a large number of accredited candidates (SJP’ers) who are always keen to get going on new projects.

Need the same help again? SJP’ers are often redeployed with our clients. Just let us know that you would love to work with them again.

Our Tech

Born out of a passion for delivering outstanding and efficient service to our clients, we identified that not all clients wanted to go through the traditional and thorough SJP hiring process for urgent or short-term hires. They trusted us, and just needed an SJP’er in, asap.

So how could existing and new clients retain our renowned delivery of the best legal talent in the market and significantly truncate the recruitment process? Simple. SJP On Demand. We engaged a team of technology experts to create an easy-to-use online booking system, that allows clients to book talent, in under 60 seconds.

Your completed booking form has full integration with our recruitment systems, meaning our team will get working on your request within the hour. We reach out to the best SJP’ers on the market, and a shortlist of candidates is presented to you typically on the same day. You select your preferred candidate, and they start with you.

The SJP.OD booking process


We don’t believe a candidate can fill in a form online and be deemed a good fit for our clients. That’s why we will never commit to automating our candidate registration process.

Our dedicated team of specialist legal recruiters meet with as many of our candidates seeking work as possible and take them through the full SJP accreditation process, whilst exploring potential live opportunities.

For us it’s personal and a key part of the outstanding client and candidate service that we strive to offer.

SJP is proud to have the largest active database of Paralegals and Contract Lawyers in the UK. We receive hundreds of new CVs every week and have over 25,000 candidates registered with us.

However prescriptive your requirement is, we will have a high-quality candidate for the job.
