Fantastic role for a junior employment lawyer to join an award winning employment team at a leading sector-focussed practice. This is a rare opportunity to join an established and thriving employment team advising respondent clients throughout the UK. This role can be based in either the firms' Birmingham or Manchester offices.
The role will incorporate; advisory, litigation and general employment work (to include drafting policies and employment contracts) as well as working cross-team with colleagues on large projects. The employment team works for all of the firm's sector clients including; health & social care, social enterprise and charities as well as working for many well-known commercial clients on all aspects of employment law.
The ideal candidate will be an excellent technical lawyer with a clear motivation to work within a sector focussed firm and the ability to hit the ground running. The candidate will have strong client facing skills, and feel comfortable running their own caseload as well as working as part of a team.
This would be a great fit for an employment lawyer with at least 1 years' PQE looking for the chance to join a collegiate team and work for a great mix of clients.
In return the successful candidate will enjoy a rewarding and interesting caseload, responsibility and autonomy, flexible working and a highly supportive and friendly working environment. Our client strives to ensure that its employers are highly motivated and fully supported in order to carry out their roles to the best of their abilities.
