A different kind of employment law role has become available with a firm in East Yorkshire. The firm is growing at an impressive yet sensible pace. They do a lot of work for insurers, brokers and financial institutions. They are looking for ideally a solicitor with at least 2-6 years employment law experience.

The Role
Giving telephone/email advice to companies as a result of an insurance policy they have in place
The advice can range from anything from interpreting maternity provisions to talking them through a redundancy process - it's really broad ranging
As the firm grows there may be the option to almost act as a consultant to some of these clients and actually go into the business and e.g. conduct the redundancy process
The role would suit someone looking to move away from a conventional fee earner role, into more of a consultative role where you operate more like an in-house lawyer
Whilst this firm is relatively small at the moment it has plans to become a national player which it is firmly on track for
Excellent quality work, some of which is on a par with the big firms in Yorkshire.

The Candidate
- At least 2 years solid employment law experience is required for the role, together with strong commercial acumen
- The team is incredibly supportive and friendly and need someone who has this approach

Benefits
Part-time hours will certainly be considered
There is also a conventional employment law team and there may be scope to move into this team in time and actually handle the claims if this is desired.

How To Apply
If you would like to apply for this role then contact Rachel Birkinshaw or another member of the Private Practice Team.
