Job Description

As an Employment Solicitor this is a great opportunity to work with one of the best and most experienced teams in the country. With over 60 employment lawyers, they have one of the best resourced teams of employment specialists of any law firm in the country, offering national coverage from all of our offices.

You will be involved with helping finance directors, HR teams and in-house employment lawyers of major UK and international companies to avoid employment conflicts and save money so that they can focus on managing their workforce more effectively.

The team is currently undergoing a great period of growth and Manchester has been identified as a "hot spot" in this regard. The team offers a fantastic mix of contentious and non-contentious advice. The Manchester team also contributes strongly to the firm's development of large national and international relationships with key clients in chosen sectors with particular emphasis on financial services, infrastructure and advanced manufacturing.

Our client is looking for an Employment Solicitor from NQ upwards with employment law experience in a large commercial firm (be that regional, national, City or international) building up market knowledge and contacts and with specific experience of dealing with a wide range of issues to include corporate support, business as usual queries and strategic employment law advice. The role will also involve a considerable element of contentious work.

The successful candidate will have a strong academic background and an outgoing personality. Candidates must be technically excellent but equally important, commercially aware and enthusiastic about business development. Given the exposure to senior sophisticated clients, the candidate will be confident in dealing directly with said senior individuals. They will be a team player with the ability to train and supervise more junior lawyers. They will also be organized with excellent communication skills and a systematic approach to business development.

Please note that the level of PQE identified in this advert is a guide only and does not preclude candidates with more or less experience from applying.
