As Thornton Legal’s profile grows, it’s great to get more involved in the business community and building our networks outside of recruitment. It’s brilliant to find out what others have been doing in 2017 and what their plans are for the future.

Earlier this month we received an email from Bruntwood inviting us to join them at their table at the Professional Liverpool lunch to be held in the magnificent Liverpool town Hall which was very kind of them. The event took place on Thursday 23rd November, and we had a brilliant time.

Professional Liverpool represents the local business community with the with the objective of promoting talents and enhancing the regions reputation as a professional centre of excellence.

In attendance was a real mix of professional people from accountants and solicitors through to those in the media and digital arenas representing the best of what Liverpool offers.

Nick and I had a great time and met professionals who we will keep in touch with through 2018 and beyond. In recruitment it’s very easy to get wrapped up in the day today activity, but every time we get out of our bubble and get involved in networking and lunching it’s very positive and worthwhile experience.

We didn’t ask the reason why we were invited, but perhaps it was because Bruntwood sponsored the “Best Start Up” award we received at the Merseyside Independent Business Awards.

Whatever the reason was we’d like to thank Bruntwood, particularly Laura Bunting and Tony Reed, and we look forward to catching up with you again soon.

Joe and I put our DJ’s on and attended the 2017 Merseyside Independent Business Awards ceremony on Thursday night. It was black tie event held in the very snazzy Rum Warehouse of the Titanic Hotel.

Thornton Legal had been nominated for the “Best Start Up” award and we saw the event as an ideal opportunity to celebrate the first 2 years of our recruitment business with wives, friends and colleagues.

We were happy to have even been shortlisted in what was a very competitive category and were therefore somewhat taken back to win on the night, much to the delight of our table!

Thornton Legal are thrilled to have won such a prestigious award. The awards themselves were designed to platform and celebrate independent businesses on Merseyside, their owners and those who support them. They were founded in 2013 by Morecrofts Solicitors, a prominent local firm, to celebrate being 200 years old and remaining independent.

A lot of hard work went into the application process itself and the shortlist and eventual winners of all categories were decided by two different judging panels made up of eight respected and very experienced professionals from different parts of the Liverpool City Region.

The night itself was a bit of a blur, as was the next day at work. Suffice to say we had a great time toasting the success or not only ourselves but also the other fantastic businesses nominated for awards.

We would like to thank all of the loyalty and support shown to us by clients and candidates alike since we first started trading in January 2016. It’s been a whirlwind start!

Winning an award for “best start up” in a city brimming with talented start-up businesses is a real honour. Joe and I firmly believe that Liverpool and the wider North West is a fantastic location to continue to grow and that exciting times lie ahead.

We are hoping to go live with our brand-new website in the next couple of months and are already looking to add several legal recruiters and a marketing assistant to the Thornton Legal Team! We will be advertising he roles on our website soon so please do get in touch if you are interested in hearing more.
