Commercial litigation
Full time
Contract type

We have been instructed on a unique opportunity for an ambitious commercial litigation lawyer who is looking to significantly develop as a lawyer.

This is an ideal opportunity for someone who has become disenchanted with the traditional model associated with heavyweight law firms but still would like to maintain the highest quality of work with the added incentive of some flexible working.

You will be working very closely with a Commercial Litigation Partner who has an excellent reputation in the North West market. The firm is looking for someone with good academics and a broad knowledge of commercial litigation. However, the main requirement is for the ideal candidate to be highly ambitious and to have a desire to learn.

Ideally you will be around 3-6 years’ PQE. However, the firm is willing to be flexible for an exceptional candidate who buys into the ethos of the firm. The remuneration package is exceptional with excellent prospects in the short to medium term.

There is only so much you can say in an advert. For more information on this opportunity or for general career advice in the strictest of confidence, please contact me, Andrew Jenkins at VG CHARLES &CO on 0161 930 8891 or mail

There are literally hundreds of recruiters out there all claiming to be the best – at VG CHARLES &CO we make some fairly simple and straightforward claims. We NEVER lose sight of the fact that our candidates and clients are people and not commodities. We are in recruitment because we want to improve lives not just change them for the sake of it. We are here for the long haul and hope to be able to advise you not just over months but over years.

We are staffed by lawyers and non-lawyers alike all sharing our passion to get things right and all having gone through rigorous training and development to ensure we are always able to help and offer pragmatic and non-patronising advice. We are happy to talk even when there is absolutely no chance of a fee as we think that is the right thing to do.

We aim to give all of our candidates an edge by giving them every legitimate help that we can – to ensure that in the current competitive environment our candidates are the best prepared and researched. Having been established for nearly a decade we are proud to have staff with a wealth of experience in top end legal recruitment which helped countless candidates through the recession of the early ‘90s. All of them genuinely care about the people they represent.

This is a cross section of some of the comments we have received:

“I have known Jane for a number of years now. She has never been pushy or simply interested in placing me in the first available job. Instead, she has focused on finding the right job for me, at the right time for me. I would recommend Jane to anyone.”

“Tony has done an excellent job throughout. He is professional, courteous and thorough.”

“Greg was fantastic right from our initial conversation. He clearly has excellent knowledge of the market and goes the extra mile compared to other recruiters. Overall I would be happy to recommend Greg to friends within the profession – in fact I wouldn’t recommend anyone else. Greg was first class.”

“Andrew was a pleasure to deal with completely professional from start to finish. He has been supportive, encouraging and did not attempt to pressure me in any way. I would not hesitate in recommending him to my colleagues and peers. Many thanks for your help!”
