The opportunity

We are looking for an experienced and skilled personal injury litigator to join our team of highly successful lawyers in our Newcastle office to assist on a varied caseload of high value multi-track personal injury claims. You will have the opportunity to represent union members who have suffered injuries and need our expert support to secure justice on their behalf.

With a passion for blending your technical expertise with your outstanding communication and client care skills, you will take pride in delivering a first class legal service. Having the confidence and ability to take appropriate daily decisions (receiving guidance from senior lawyers) to ensure swift case progression, will be key to your success. To ensure you thrive in the role, we will provide you with structured supervision, coaching and training as well as a nurturing environment, where you can grow and shape your career.

The role

As a qualified lawyer with at least 2 years' case handling experience, you will be assessing and advising on the prospects of success on a range of multi-track personal injury claims. You will therefore need to have excellent knowledge of the law relating to personal injury and the civil litigation process. The role requires excellent prioritisation skills and meticulous attention to detail to enable you to construct clear and effective arguments, yielding the best result for our clients. You will also be a team player and will enjoy engaging in marketing and business development opportunities.

Who we are

We are a law firm unlike any other. With nearly 100 years' experience of successfully representing clients of injury and mistreatment, we have the privilege of working with and supporting the Trade Union and Labour Movement and the people they represent.

By providing an inclusive environment, we ensure that individually and collectively we flourish to be the best we can be. We pride ourselves on being "the most experienced trade union, claimant and employment rights law firm in the UK", an accolade that comes from our excellence in client care and our commitment to maintaining and enhancing the professional competence of our people. We are proud of our collaborative and friendly working environment and our excellent work/life balance.


We recognise and reward high performance, remunerating our people fairly with competitive salaries and an extensive benefits package. For more detailed information on our benefits, please visit our website.
