Employment Solicitor

This fantastic, ever-popular top tier firm has an opening for a newly qualified employment lawyer to join the team in Leeds.

The team is recognised for its large broad-ranging private sector client base, and also advises & represents many public sector, local authority and education sector organisations, which gives the team a very broad-ranging and far-reaching practice. They cover all aspects of contentious and non-contentious employment work, including significant corporate support work.

They advise on all processes relating to redundancy, all aspects of TUPE, sales, shared services and insolvency repercussions, and represent both parties in relation to employment disputes either in tribunal or court, acting for individual claimants and corporate respondents. Employment lawyers at the firm regularly undertake advocacy on behalf of their clients.

Some of the team's work is multi-disciplinary and multi-jurisdictional, and complex & challenging. Even as an NQ, you will have the opportunity to assist on these types of work, whilst also running your own caseload of more straightforward matters with light-touch supervision, enabling you to really build your technical skills on a wide range of work.

This is a high quality NQ employment role, which will suit a candidate from a recognised regional, national or City firm who can demonstrate intellectual ability, a practical and focussed approach and a decent grounding in predominantly respondent-based employment work gained during their training contract. Candidates who have not had a full employment seat are unlikely to be considered for the role.

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