What are Tier 1 and Tier 2 Locums?

Tier 1 and Tier 2 Locums are the two different levels of registration available to solicitors and legal executives who want to register with us.

Tier 1 Locums will have:

  1. A full CV on our system, detailing all work to date.
  2. Proof of ID in the form of a copy of their passport or driving licence.
  3. Proof of residence – usually a bank statement or utility bill.
  4. At least one reference from employed work or locum work in the past 5 years.
  5. Undergone a background check by one of our consultants.
  6. Agreed to work to the Interim Lawyers standard locum conditions.
  7. Have a fixed hourly rate for work.
  8. Signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with us.

Tier 2 Locums will have:

  1. Registered with InterimLawyers.co.uk to receive locum assignment updates.
  2. A CV on our system, but not necessarily up to date.
  3. Undergone a background check by one of our consultants.

Tier 1 Locums are those we work with regularly and Tier 2 Locums can either be new registrations or locums who simply want to be informed of assignments as they crop up. We do not arrange assignments for Tier 2 Locums until they have provided the documents requested, although in emergencies we may notify our clients that we have someone at Tier 2 level available.
