Our Services

Talent Finder

Our intuitive lens system defines your search parameters through four options:

  • PQE range
  • Main Practice Area, e.g. Corporate & Commercial
  • Practice Specialism, e.g. Commercial Contracts
  • Firm rank, e.g. All Fir­ms; ranges such as 1-5 or US and Boutique firms

Plus you’ll receive an on screen ‘at a glance’ summary of:

  • The number of people with the desired skill set and the firms where they work
  • The remuneration for each firm specific to the PQE range you have selected
  • The entire market capacity in each service area
  • Whole-market data on PQE levels per skill

Codex Edge will then generate a talent pool from your selected criteria. The candidates’ skillsets will exactly match those required by the role description you provided.

You can then verify and veto the talent pool. In other words, select those candidates you feel most relevant to the role and exclude any candidates you do not want to approach.

At this point, you can either Opt for our QUALIFIED LEADS service or engage internal staff to make initial contact with the candidate pool.

Codex Edge has been precisely designed to save you time, and money. The entire legal market is clearly mapped, is up to date, and selections are easy to filter through our innovative and intuitive interface.

Codex Edge – precise, powerful and proven.

Access Qualified Leads

You and your direct sourcing team can review the candidate pool to verify or veto the candidates. Next, we contact each verified candidate to check they would be interested in hearing directly from you about present or future roles.

To ensure we deliver the appropriate message, we ask you to agree the verbal approach we’re to use when speaking to the Candidate. We will make up to three attempts to contact them, and the successful attempt results in us:

  • Asking the candidate if they wish to receive a communication from you, including any specific message or information you wish us to convey on your behalf
  • Providing you with relevant contact details and suitable times for contacting the candidate
  • Providing you with a complete record of all contact and communication, both positive and negative, with the candidates
  • Arranging times for interview with the candidate(s)

Every feature of Codex Edge has been carefully designed to save you time, money and inconvenience. Giving you the information you want, the way you want it – fast.

Your Diversity & Inclusion Solution

Diverse and inclusive businesses are more successful. They benefit from multiple points of view and are more representative of – and acceptable to – the clients they serve.

Or put another way, any form of bias which guides and determines the type of person considered for employment will inhibit your ability to create a diverse and inclusive organisation. And that will be harmful to your business.

Designed to comply with BS76005 “Valuing people through Diversity and Inclusion” the Codex Edge diversity filter enables firms to demonstrate internally and externally that inclusion is at the heart of their hiring policy.

Excluding all forms of bias from the candidate selection process requires a system which makes it impossible for any form of bias to have effect. This means accessing candidate pools with all suggestions of protected characteristics and social background redacted.

Promoting Diversity & Inclusion within a law firm is a low-cost change that produces a massive R.O.I. Codex Edge is so advanced it lets you initially consider all candidate pools in a traceable D & I blind process. All target candidates are allocated a Unique Identifying Number (UIN) which follows them throughout the process.

This allows you to make D & I blind pool selections and demonstrate internally and externally that this has been done.
