You will be an important part of a growing team of solicitors and paralegals dealing with both contentious and non-contentious matters. The contentious work will include a mixture of both Claimant and Respondent advisory HR work, representation in Employment Tribunal claims.. You will report directly to the Managing Partner, Jodie Hill, and will have the opportunity both to learn from the Partners and to line manage less experienced members of the team.
The role is ideally suited to someone with 5+ years PQE, but applications will be considered from anyone who can demonstrate the skills and experience needed for the role.
The client base will range from SMEs to national companies, charities and education establishments on the Respondent side, to company directors, HNW individuals, employees and union members on the Claimant side. You will be expected to work alongside and communicate effectively with all levels of client.
Clients often approach the firm due to our mental health specialism and our keen focus on D&I. You will therefore be expected to have an awareness of mental health issues and disability discrimination in particular, together with a understanding of proactive measures employers could take when it comes to D&I initiatives.
The role will also involve active participation in the firm’s marketing, article drafting, PR, business development, social media and networking activities, as appropriate.
