There are a number of legal recruitment companies in Hong Kong. However not many deal with paralegals.
Most of those that do deal with paralegals will only accept as candidates those paralegals with at least six months to one year's prior paralegal work experience.
The reason for this is that most paralegal employers receive large amounts of unsolicited applications. The applications come from people who want entry-level paralegal positions (there is no such thing as trainee paralegals in the way that there are trainee solicitors. You should talk about entry-level positions.
Because paralegal employers receive so many unsolicited applications they do not need to pay legal recruitment companies to find them entry-level paralegals.
A major exception to this rule is CQrecruit.
