Job Details


This is an exceptional opportunity to join one of the North's leading Employment teams at Partner level. You will be surrounded by leading Lawyers and gain exposure to engaging, complex work on behalf of a high-calibre client base.

The Firm

This reputable international law firm has gone from strength to strength throughout 2023 and 2024, continued growth into 2025 forecasted and beyond. With headcount growth at 10% YOY and ambitious plans to build on this, it is a genuinely exciting time to join the firm with significant scope to progress.

The firm attracts an exceptionally high calibre of clients from HNW individuals to multinational PLCs.

Well-known for their culture, you will be part of a close-knit team that arrange regular social events, and all have the same ambitious and motivated personalities. Their culture, combined with the quality of work, has given them one of the best retention rates in the country; on average, lawyers typically stay with the firm for 5+ years, whilst the industry average is around 2 - 3 years.

As a previous winner of Working Families' 'Best UK Employer for Flexible Working Award', the firm is happy to consider flexible working opportunities to help you balance your work and home life. This practice sets reasonable targets for a firm of their size giving you a fantastic option if you are looking to steer away from a KPI/high volume-based environment.

The Role

The firm are seeking to hire an Employment Partner to join their heavy-hitting team based in Manchester.

The department is ranked highly in the legal 500 and the team is one of the strongest nationally. The team is dynamic and punches well above their weight. You work with the other partners to drive the department forwards. They support their clients out of their national and international offices.

The firm's highly rated employment team handles a wide range of excellent quality contentious and non-contentious work including advisory work on HR issues, disputes related work in the tribunal and courts, drafting employment documentation, employee relations and transaction/outsourcing work. The team's workload is increasingly top end, complex, premium work and accordingly they are working to strengthen our capacity at that level.

There are excellent prospects here for progression with the continued growth of this department and the firm. You will be joining a national department of c.35 fee-earners, with 12 based from their Manchester office.

This role comes with good prospects and career development.

Requirements:

  • You will be an Employment Partner with at least 7 years PQE (there are no upper limits regarding the amount of PQE and applications are invited from the most experienced candidates)
  • You will have good commercial awareness and strong drafting skills
  • Experience of managing more junior colleagues is to advantage, but not essential
  • A meticulous eye for detail is essential
  • Salary is competitive and dependent on your background and level of experience, plus an excellent benefits package

If you are looking to join a Top tier Employment team in Manchester then look no further! Apply now for immediate consideration or feel free to give us a call for a confidential conversation.
