Employment Solicitor or Associate
Employment Associate or Senior Associate- Manchester
The firm has a truly international profile and a long standing presence in Manchester and key to that success has been the employment practice group which stands out in the local market both in its size and technical capability.
This role sits within a well established team with a focus on the Education sector and carries a broad profile of work both contentious and non-contentious.
Increasingly, the education sector is adopting a much more commercial approach akin to corporate clients and so the similarities are much more than they ever were.
You will need to be able to work with a good level of autonomy but will have full support to ensure that nothing inhibits your ability to grow and develop.
Strong technical experience is a must but it also needs to be coupled with a strong aptitude to be proactively involved in client relationships. Advocacy experience is advantageous but not essential. Despite the clear education focus it is by no means necessary to have had direct education sector experience but a genuine appetite to be involved in the area is a must.
Given the current structure of the team it is likely that you will have around 3-6 years PQE but there is certainly flexibility albeit more towards the upper end. However if you feel you have relevant experience then we want to hear from you.
If you are an ambitious employment solicitor with an appetite to move up the ladder then we are interested in speaking with you. Please send your CV or contact Paul Warburton for a confidential discussion.
