Talent Solutions

Alas is a compliant service provider and fully embraces the standards set by the Association of Personnel Service Organisations (APSO). In addition, we ascribe to international best practise and provide talent solutions, whether temporary or permanent, of the highest standard.
  1. Permanent Staffing

    Legal Recruitment: Despite the dramatic trend to outsource all non-core functions within a business, many companies in various industries still want, and need, a permanent in-house legal executive. As such Alas is able to source, select and recruit permanent legal professionals for various organisations as well as private legal practices.

    Executive Recruitment: The value of exceptional executive talent is immeasurable. As veterans in executive recruitment, Alas is able to undertake the most senior assignments with great confidence, credibility and sensitivity.

  2. Temporary Staffing

    Temporary staffing has evolved from what was once a day-to-day 'fill in' position to a dynamic staffing solution that can see a single candidate placed at a client's business for months at a time. Temporary or contract staffing remains a preferable solution as it allows client's to alter their staff compliment in line with projects and changing business demands. For the legal industry, contract attorneys and legal secretaries are most in demand in terms of temporary recruitment.

Recruitment Methodology

Amidst a global skills shortage of professional legal and executive talent, Alas has built up an exclusive candidate network which serves as the foundation of our recruitment process. We are particularly stringent when it comes to forwarding suitable candidates and adopt a strict recruitment methodology so that only the best possible matches are dispatched for your consideration.

In order to do this we perform a number of screening tests and assessments (see value added services) in addition to telephonic and face-to-face interviews. We are particularly vigilant in viewing all candidates holistically and do not view their attributes in isolation. When looking for a candidate that is right-fit for a particular position we take special care to look at the following elements:
  • Skills
  • Qualifications
  • Experience
  • Personality fit
  • Culture fit
