Description

Employment Solicitor

This top ranking global firm in Leeds is looking for an employment solicitor to join the team.

The firm has one of the largest employment practices in the country and is also supported by their overseas teams, especially in relation to multi-jurisdictional projects.

As you'd expect with a firm of this calibre, they have an impressive client list of FTSE 100 companies, City institutions and major national and international companies, for whom they deliver high-profile complex contentious and advisory services as well as the employment aspects of chunky complex high value corporate transactions, but they also undertake more routine business-as-usual work for both major national & international clients but also a range of work for smaller local market clients, for whom every piece of work can be business critical and very important for them. This provides a great range of work for junior members of the team, who deal with matters from start to finish and build genuine client relationships in the process, as well as getting involved in big ticket projects and transactions, again with plenty of client contact.

The team is also committed to providing all lawyers with the opportunity to undertake secondments to the in-house legal teams of their clients.

The team is now looking for a junior solicitor, either an NQ or someone with up to 2 years PQE, with solid academics and a strong grasp on the principles of employment law and practice, preferably from a respondent background where you will have gained exposure to corporate support work as well as stand-alone employment work. If you've also seen a bit of cross-border work then so much the better, although this is not essential.

If you're interested in this role, please apply now or forward an up-to-date copy of your CV, or call us.
