About Our Client

A national private practice based in Birmingham.

Job Description

Due to recent international growth, our client is looking to recruit a Commercial Litigation Solicitor to be based in its Birmingham litigation team.

This is a fantastic opportunity for solicitor who is looking to use their language skills and interact closely with clients on a daily basis. In particular, our client is looking to speak to solicitors who can speak either Russian or German (or both).

The team are involved in a lot of international multi-million pound arbitration work and this is something you would be working on. You do not need to have experience in such high level work but you need to have the ability to learn and step up to the mark. The language skills are essential for this position.

This is a rare opportunity for you to work alongside the senior partner to grow their international offering. You will be heavily involved in both internal and networking opportunities - a great opportunity for you to stamp your mark and make a difference to a growing international offering. A clear progression path can be explained to you at interview.

This is a genuine opportunity for you to not only be involved in top quality arbitration work, but it is also a great chance for you to use your language skills on a daily basis.

The Successful Applicant

Ideally you will have experience advising on a range of contentious matters. Our client will consider candidates with differing levels of PQE.

The most important element to this recruitment is language skills: you must be able to speak either Russian or German.

Our clients will consider candidates with strong academics who perhaps work at a much smaller firm but can add value from a language perspective and have the ability to learn and develop.

In particular, our client would be interested in speaking with Russian or German speaking litigators who are looking to relocate to Birmingham from the city.

What's on Offer

Competitive depending on experience; a rare opportunity to use your language skills on a daily basis.
