Legal recruitment firm sets the standard with city center move

Bygott Biggs, the legal recruitment firm covering Nottingham, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, has moved back into Nottingham city center after taking space at Cubo Standard Court.

During the pandemic, the company found a new home in the Engine Yard development near Belvoir Castle.

However, with many sectors returning to a more office-based approach, the Bygott Biggs team, led by Jane Biggs, is returning its headquarters to Nottingham, while serving clients in Birmingham, Leeds and the North West from Cubo’s other locations .

Jane Biggs, founder of Bygott Biggs, said: “As we celebrate 30 yearsth Anniversary, we look back at how our business has evolved and adapted to new ways of working.

“We also reflect on the changes our customers have seen during that time. For many years, law firms were fairly traditional workplaces – wood-paneled offices, imposing boardrooms and the holy grail of the cherished and private corner office.

“We now see a much more progressive and flexible model, with hybrid working the norm and office participation providing an opportunity to mentor junior colleagues, foster team spirit and strengthen culture, while maintaining the important work-life balance .”

She added: “As this latest transition back to the office begins to gain a foothold, we hope it will contribute to a renewed invigoration in the city center as the professional sector returns to the office.

“However, as the legal services market continues to flourish and competition for talent remains high, the key for law firms looking to attract and retain top talent is to provide a flexible and supportive work environment that allow for an increasingly diverse range of lawyers. find the right balance in their career/home life.”
