Employment Solicitor - 4+ PQE
Employment Associate/Senior Solicitor - Manchester
First things first, how is this different? The primary reason is the scope for progression. Whilst the nature of the role requires someone coming in at a senior associate level, it has a clear route towards leading part of the practice group and in turn progression to partnership.
The firm has a national profile and a long standing presence in Manchester and key to that success has been the employment practice group.
This role sits more on the healthcare side of the practice but for which there is a solid legacy of clients and work that should provide a suitably soft landing and broad foundation to build further.
You will need to be able to work with a good level of autonomy but will have full junior support to ensure that nothing inhibits the ability to grow.
Experience of healthcare is less important but you must have the appetite to have this as your sector focus.
The extent of the work is fairly broad and encompasses both contentious and non-contentious work whether tribunal claims or wider corporate support.
Strong technical experience is a must but it also needs to be coupled with a strong aptitude to business developed. There is a real push on developing the healthcare sector and doing so will be intrinsic to promotion.
If you are an ambitious employment solicitor or senior associate 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.
