Contract type

I have the pleasure of working with a well-respected and highly regarded law firm based in Manchester City Centre. The firm are looking to employ a Serious Injury Solicitor to join their expanding motor department.

The firm has multiple offices across the country including offices in Leeds, London, Liverpool, Manchester and Edinburgh. The firm has a variety of notable, high-profile clients, including leading insurers.

The firm prides itself in having highly credible and professional personal injury lawyers who have progressed from junior fee earners to partners. The firm have a fantastic staff retention rate, and this is something the firm is very proud of.

The firm is offering a lucrative salary, along with excellent benefits which includes pension, private health care, childcare vouchers, eye care vouchers, 25 days holiday plus bank holiday, an option to buy or sell 5 days, death in service plus many more benefits!

About the role

The role will involve handling a caseload of RTA cases up to the value of £100K from point of issue to settlement/trial. As such, you will be experienced in handling Multi Track cases. You will also be confident when investigating liability and causation issues, and well versed at negotiating quantum.

The right legal professional will be confident in liaising and advising policyholders, as well as high-profile clients. You will also work towards realistic and genuine targets, whilst achieving your own personal goals.

There is also an opportunity to supervise junior members of the team after 6 months should you so wish so. 

Ideally, my client is looking to employ someone from a defendant background. However, they will consider someone from a claimant background who has a strong interest in defending matters.

Are you up for the job?
