Employment Senior Associate - Top Tier, well-rounded practice

£105,000 - £130,000


Shannon Aldis

Are you looking to join a leading employment law practice that offers the opportunity to engage in top-tier work?

AJ Chambers is working with a top law firm, with a National Employment team that advises its clients on the full spectrum of employment-related matters. The team now seeks applications for individuals with at least 5 years of post-qualification, ideally gained at a top City or regional practice, of niche employment boutique.

The team offers a well-rounded practice and top-tier work, without a heavy emphasis on corporate support / transactional work. This work is available for solicitors who enjoy it, but broadly speaking you can expect a varied practice, across contentious and non-contentious matters also.

The role

Joining as an experienced associate or senior associate you will advise commercial clients on a range of contentious and non-contentious matters including but not limited to;

  • Providing day-to-day advice on matters such as disciplinary and grievance matters,
  • Employment tribunal and civil court litigation
  • Advising senior executives on matters such as negotiating appointments and exits,
  • Advising multi-nationals on cross-boarded acquisitions and disposals,
  • Advising on collective matters (restructuring, redundancy, TUPE etc)
  • Project work such as compliance.

Key Requirements

  • England and Wales qualified lawyer with at least 5 years post-qualification experience ideally gained at a top City or regional practice.
  • Broad employment law experience across contentious, non-contentious and transactional matters.
  • Ideally, you will have experience advising multinational clients, ideally from the financial services sector.
  • Strong academic background.

The successful candidate will join a highly successful and growing practice known for providing jargon-free advice and solutions.

In return, my client offers a base salary of between £105,000 to £130,000 (d.o.e) as well as a competitive benefits package.

  • Property Solicitor - Residential
    £20,000 - 25,000

    AJ Chambers are excited to be working alongside a growing and prestigious Law Practice who have a presence in both Essex and Suffolk who are looking to expand their residential property team with a qualified Solicitor.

    The role will offer the succesful candidate a clear progressive career opportunity with the potential of reaching Partner level.

    The main purpose of the role is to run a small to medium residential caseload (circa £180k fees per year) with the help of a full time paralegal. This is the complete opposite of a pile them high sell them cheap approach. The residential offering is an off shoot from the corporate client base.

    It would be a fantastic opportunity for someone who is fed up of the huge pressures residential solicitors have faced the last 2 years particularly working in larger firms who do mass conveyancing. This is a high quality service for a good price to a small number of clients.

    You must have proven experience of:

    registered and unregistered freehold and leasehold sales, purchases, mortgages/re-mortgages, transfers of equity (including matrimonial conveyancing), lease extensions, new builds, assignments of off-plan contracts, shared ownership and Right to Buy transactions.

    Candidates will need to be c5 years PQE but a client following is not essential for the role.

    A competitive salary and work life balance is on offer along with the opportunity to grow with the business.
