Employment Solicitor

This big brand international firm, tier one for employment law in the region, is looking to recruit a fairly junior employment solicitor to join the team in Leeds.

High ranked across all legal directories, the team has particular expertise across the higher education, financial services and retail sectors, making it the number one go-to firm for employment matters in these sectors, but the employment practice also has a wider sector spread. They deal with all the usual contentious and non-contentious respondent employment matters, but also regularly advise clients on such matters as cross border consultation, benefit redesign exercises and global mobility, as well as senior executive and board room issues. On the contentious side, there's Employment Tribunal and High Court litigation as well as investigations work supporting the Regulatory team on the HR aspects of their matters. On the strategic advisory side there's global change management exercises, reward philosophy projects and gender pay gap audits.

They are now looking to recruit an associate level solicitor with around two or three years' PQE, although this is not set in stone, who has gained experience across a good range of the areas of contentious and non-contentious respondent work covered by the team. They'd ideally like to see applications from lawyers with some cross-border experience and involvement with higher level strategic advice.

The successful applicant is likely to come from another international firm, or other large commercial firm, or possibly in-house if you have the right range of experience. A solid academic profile is a given, as the work is often complex and academically challenging.

In return, you can enjoy a truly diverse range of work and some genuinely interesting projects, acting on behalf of major household name clients, coupled with a top of the market salary package.

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