A singular, authentic approach to your career advancement

Trust reposed, honoured advocate

As a legal professional, your clients engage you as an expert to achieve a better result than that which they might be able to accomplish themselves. At the core, you are reposed with trust and the accessories of transparency and confidentiality. So too, ALMA Search treats each and every candidate in the same way you do your most valued client.

A successful placement is not merely a match of candidate and opportunity. Nor does it lend itself to a script. Our curated approach to each and every engagement starts with a deep dive on your professional values, career projections, motivations and ambitions.

A passion for people & a perfect placement

We marry this with our deep knowledge of market activity and we cultivate opportunity not merely with an overarching view of what roles exist. We refine, identify and in some cases make those opportunities happen for you. For this reason, we are the preferred executive search partner for senior legal professionals seeking In-House or private practice opportunities.  

Whether you are actively looking, or you require support identifying off market opportunities, we are here to help.

"Ilana is great at what she does, because she actually matches candidates to roles in an insightful and scrupulous manner, rather than trying to just put candidates forward for any role. She is professional, hardworking and goes above and beyond for candidates. She has great acumen and knowledge in relation to legal industry recruitment."
