Elena Bajada Senior Associate

Elena Bajada - Legal Recruiting London

I am a qualified lawyer with an understanding of the EMEA legal market. I enjoy combining my knowledge of the law with in-depth research skills to thoroughly map the market and identify top legal talent for every retained search mandate I am assigned to.

Elena Bajada is an Associate in our London office. As a member of the EMEA In-House Practice Group, Elena researches and sources candidates for mid-level to general counsel retained search assignments for a diverse client base throughout the EMEA region.

Elena has a passion for travel, literature, sport and politics; she also enjoys cooking and trying new foods. Despite being born in London, Elena was brought up in Malta. Whilst completing her legal studies, she held the role of president of the Malta University Sports Club for three years and acted as head of delegation to the Maltese Team at the Universiades. She speaks English and Maltese and is also fluent in Italian.


Prior to joining Major, Lindsey & Africa, Elena worked as a lawyer in a Maltese law firm. Her experience working in a law firm, in addition to her legal studies, incentivized her to enter the world of legal search, where she felt she could contribute not only due to her deep knowledge of the legal market but also through her desire to establish lasting relationships with clients and candidates.
