Role Overview
I am looking fo an employment solicitor, with two years’ post-qualification experience to join the firm’s tier 1 ranked and highly regarded employment team.
The employment team represent a broad range of clients from listed corporations to mid-market and emerging businesses, advising clients on all aspects of employment law and HR best practice. The team is well-known for its pragmatic and commercial approach which is delivered in a creative and supportive manner. The team also focuses on in-house client training programmes and HR delivery.

Skills & Experience
Im seeking ideally a lawyer qualified to a minimum of two years’ PQE with a demonstrable interest in a career in employment and relevant post qualifying experience in a leading regional or City practice.
You will be bright, enterprising, motivated and be able to evidence excellent analytical and drafting skills and confidence in front of clients.
The ideal candidate will be a technically strong employment lawyer who is seeking responsibility, client contact and the opportunity to advise a broad range of client issues principally from an employer perspective. It will particularly be of interest to someone looking for a modern approach to supporting clients, providing consultative employment/HR advice, and an opportunity to join a department with aspirations for growth and development. You will need to have excellent client care skills with the ability to communicate directly with clients at a senior level, strong technical skills, particularly drafting, presentation and research, be IT literate and able to work well under pressure.
The work is a mix of advisory, contentious, and transactional matters, predominantly on behalf of businesses/respondents. Some of our projects in the last year include the implementation and design of a new pay and grading structure, a workforce restructure and redundancy exercise, the design and delivery of a management and leadership programme, the management of disciplinary, grievance and performance procedures and the management of TUPE transfer arrangements.
