You will join one of the UK’s leading employment teams, recognised as market leaders for both employer and employee clients.
Highly ranked in the leading directories the teams lawyers provide advice across an array of matters such as employment disputes in the tribunal and High Court, discrimination claims, employee competition, redundancy situations, TUPE, partnership and shareholder disputes, general advisory matters such as drafting employment contracts and policies, and transactional support.
This role is based in my client’s Reading office, but as the team operates with a one-firm policy you can expect to work with lawyers in the London office also on client matters.
As a junior in the team, you can expect to take on a workload of employee and employer work, including by not limited to the above. You will support various Partners and senior lawyers, rather than being attached to a singular Partners team, allowing you to gain exposure to a range of work and learn from all lawyers in the firms.
You can expect to be given plenty of responsibility and autonomy early on, with appropriate supervision from senior team members.
You will be either a newly qualified solicitor, with at least a seats experience in employment law, or you will be an already qualified employment lawyer with up to 3 years experience.
You will likely have trained or practised within a reputable employment team at a regional, boutique or city practice and gain exposure to a wide range of employment matters.
You should have a can-do attitude, strong communication skills and excellent attention to detail.
You will join a friendly, collaborative and progressive law firm.
Salary for this role will depend on experience level with salary starting at £45,000 p.a for NQ solicitors and rising to £60,000 for those who are 3 PQE.
Other benefits include
- Hybrid working model
- 25 days holiday (plus your birthday and bank holidays off)
