Apt Search, leading UK and EU Recruiting Organisation, released the results of The eDiscovery Forecast: 2021 Salary Survey finding half of respondents feeling fairly compensated and the other half looking for more. In today’s candidate’s market, this creates a significant opportunity for those seeking top level talent, and a significant challenge for those seeking to retain their experienced and trained employees.

Founded by Amit Pandit, Apt Search specialises in helping eDiscovery companies and law firms find the best talent in the market, helping over 400 eDiscovery professionals across 3 continents to find their next career step to date.

EDRM will be hosting Amit Pandit on its many channels over the next month to dive more deeply into the results. EDRM is very grateful to our community for their participation in the survey.

eDiscovery Laniappe will host Amit on Clubhouse on June 3, 2021.

Amit will review his findings in graphical form, and answer questions on the EDRM Global Webinar Channel on June 9, 2021 at 11 AM Eastern.

Covered in detail by ComplexDiscovery’s Rob Robinson and eDiscovery Today’s Doug Austin, the salary report and forecast delivers salary metrics by function and level for the UK and Germany as they begin their coverage with project managers in the Netherlands. In an expanding market, salaries are increasing as we emerge from the pandemic.

According to Rob Robinson:

Background Information: Founded in 2012 by Amit Pandit, Apt Search is the United Kingdom’s first recruitment specialist fully dedicated to the data-driven markets of eDiscovery, Cybersecurity, and Privacy. As a leader in understanding the talent landscape in key European countries including the UK, Germany, and The Netherlands, Apt Search regularly interviews and surveys eDiscovery hiring managers and candidates to discern the dynamics of employment-centric opportunities, expectations, and salaries.  The 2021 Salary Survey from Apt Search represents the most recent reporting of knowledge gained from these systematic interviews and surveys and may be profitable for legal, business, and information technology professionals as they staff and support eDiscovery efforts in Europe.
