Senior Employment Lawyer 


Think Legal recruitment are working for a major commercial law firm in Leeds city centre who are looking for a talented senior associate or legal director to join their recognised employment practice in Leeds city centre.

This is the perfect opportunity for someone ideally 8 years' + PQE looking to move to a law firm that not only does excellent quality work, but also has an environment where you have flexibility around hybrid work and your working day.

The right candidate will have experience of running a caseload of respondent employment law matters, supervising and mentoring junior lawyers, and maintaining and developing existing and new client relationships. 

The caseload is a mix of both contentious and non-contentious matters and the successful candidate will have experience of handling employment tribunal claims from start to finish. On the non-contentious side you should be comfortable with TUPE transfers, reorganisations, executive terminations, as well as general advisory issues.

The firm act for a wide range of household names across multiple, diverse sectors including hospitality, retail, tech, healthcare, logistics, government and more.

Culture is important here and the firm is consistently recognised in the leading legal publications as having one of the best for a national/international practice. With an open, non-stuffy approach to social mobility, diversity and inclusion (all of which are not simply buzzwords for them) on top of the flexible working hours and hybrid options it really is a great place for everyone from all backgrounds to forge their career.

Salary is competitive based on experience + benefits.
