An employment solicitor is sought by this company located south of Manchester. This role is likely to appeal to an experienced employment solicitor seeking to move away from the confines of working for a law firm. It is a niche employment and HR specialist and offers a service which is truly different to a traditional law firm or large employment and HR consultancy.
The company has recently moved to a new office which is kitted out with excellent meeting and training facilities and market leading technology. The client list is genuinely impressive and belies the size of the organisation. As part of your role you will be working on site with and delivering training to some large international household names that the likes of the top tier law firms would be proud to call their clients.
This is not a role for a typical employment lawyer! You must be passionate about your job, with a solid pragmatic thinking style, and an eye on how the best option for your client might not be the option involving the least commercial risk! The attitude of the lawyers here is more akin to what might be expected from a good in-house employment solicitor (i.e. more commercial advisory than just technical legal).
Solicitors with trade union experience are particularly encouraged to apply, as are those with experience of TUPE transfers and just generally lawyers who are able to cut through the law and present clients with sensible commercial options to their employment law issues.
Salary for this role dependent on experience and talent, and there is a good benefits package along with a sensible attitude to work/life balance and flexibility based on the needs of the individual.
Please contact Adam Zdravkovic in the specialist Legal team at Search Consultancy for a job specification and to speak about the role in more detail.
Search is an equal opportunities recruiter and we welcome applications from all suitably skilled or qualified applicants, regardless of their race, sex, disability, religion/beliefs, sexual orientation or age.
