Job Details

We are seeking a highly motivated and talented Employment lawyer to join a prestigious international firm. The successful candidate will be a self-starter, with a passion for employment law and a desire to develop their legal skills and experience in a dynamic and fast-paced environment.

The work of the team as a whole is a mix of contentious and non-contentious matters, for a wide range of clients. The lawyers undertake a significant amount of business development and knowledge-sharing including giving seminars, training the team and creating content for various channels and publications. There is a significant international element to the team’s work, largely on account of its membership of the Ius Laboris international alliance of employment lawyers.

Role

  • You will provide legal advice and support to clients on a range of employment matters (contentious and non contentious) including contracts of employment, discrimination, redundancy, unfair dismissal, TUPE and employee capability.
  • You will effectively build and maintain client relationships through communication and management of client expectations.
  • The Senior Associate's workload will be exclusively employment work. You will mainly be assisting other Senior Associates, Managing Associates and Partners with their tribunal cases and advisory work, as well as running their own matters under supervision.
  • You will be required to work with, and supervise, more Junior Associates and Trainees / Paralegals. 

Candidate

  • You will be a qualified solicitor in England and Wales and have completed a training seat in Employment Law at a reputable firm with experience in handling Employment Law matters.
  • Will have strong communication and interpersonal skills, with the ability to build relationships with clients and colleagues.
  • You will work well under pressure, manage a busy workload and meet tight deadlines.
  • Commercially aware with an ability to think creatively and provide innovative solutions to complex legal issues.

Company

We are a dynamic, agile and fast-moving business passionate about Legal Recruitment. Our ongoing success has been inspired by our clients’ expansion strategies, of which we are a key component. We enjoy close relationships with a number of top tier national firms; the Big 4; Magic Circle, Silver Circle, White Shoe American firms to boutique specialists. It is this network that feeds into our in-depth market knowledge and expertise, and enables us to guide both clients and candidates towards best outcomes. We are a vibrant results-based business with a totally ethical underpin.

We constantly strive to add value to the entire process by understanding motivations and drivers that govern mood and behaviours; we always aim to get it right, each time. This requires tact, empathy and business maturity. We think long term. We deliver excellence, and have recently been accredited by the Goldman Sachs 10,000 Small Businesses Programme, as being expert in field, and are further graduates of the Goldman Sachs Re-Imaging Business Programme to ensure that we have the skills to adapt in a rapidly changing market.

No matter your position, experience or aspirations, we can help. We recognise the faith you place in us by putting your career in our hands – we covet this. We thrive on fulfilling your needs. Our business has never relied on mass advertising, rather our growth is almost predominantly based on referrals and word of mouth –  and there is no bigger testament to the success of a business than this.

We will guide you through every step of the recruitment maze, from initial contact to bedding in at your new firm. Once you are in your new firm, we won’t suddenly disappear and we vow to support you through your learning and development.
