FGP, McAngus Goudelock & Courie Partnership Spans Nearly A Decade


At FGP, many of our clients are introduced to us through referrals and recommendations from those who have worked with us previously. Few things are more motivating and rewarding than a company or candidate that has had a great experience with Find Great People, then shares it with others.

We take a great deal of pride in the expertise of our recruiters across many different industries and several areas of practice. One of those practice areas is the legal profession where job requirements and regulations differ from state to state. FGP’s experience includes recruiting for corporate environments and private practice from paralegals to legal assistants in many parts of the country.

Among our longtime partners is McAngus Goudelock & Courie, a Columbia-based regional insurance defense firm with nearly 200 attorneys and 15 offices throughout the Southeastern United States.

A metrics-driven law firm built specifically to meet the needs of insurance companies and their customers, McAngus Goudelock & Courie offers structured career opportunities for attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants and administrative staff.

FGP has been an MGC partner for almost a decade, handling placements in leadership roles, office management and paralegals. FGP and MGC have remained strong partners in 2018 and continue to build a history of success together.

“FGP has taken the time to understand our firm, our culture and our individual offices,” said MGC HR Director Janci Baker. “That makes a big difference in sending us candidates that are the best fit for us.”

FGP’s acute understanding of MGC’s day-to-day operations, company culture and core values will be even more advantageous as the firm transitions to centralized staffing. “FGP knows us so well that they can help us maintain a consistent culture throughout all our locations,” Baker said.

Today’s tight talent pool makes the work done by recruiters even more important, especially for companies like MGC that operate in several states, Baker says.

“In our industry, job requirements for paralegals, for example, can vary from state to state. Recruiters are well-versed in what those requirements are so that they can send us the most qualified candidates for a specific location. In today’s candidate-driven environment, we find that the better talent comes through recruiting firms.”
