Do you have experience in managing fast track accident claims?

The opportunity
This is an exciting opportunity for an aspiring, enthusiastic lawyer to join their highly successful Litigation Team based at their National Fast Track Centre.
You will have experience of handling fast track personal injury claims and an ability to maintain excellent client relationships.

We know that together we achieve more which is why we provide an inclusive environment where regardless of role or responsibility, you will have the chance to make an impact and the opportunity to shine.

The role
You will manage a full caseload of fast track RTA claims which have exited the MOJ Portal process at any stage. You will be highly organised, ensuring early decisions to litigate are made and cases are progressed proactively to settlement or trial. Day to day responsibilities will involve liability investigations and evidence gathering, undertaking legal research, instructing medical experts and Counsel, attending on clients and witnesses to prepare statements, assessing quantum and preparing schedules of loss, preparing court papers and dealing with all necessary procedural steps to progress the case to trial. Providing the best possible client care and upholding their best interests will be at the heart of everything you do.

In return, you will have the opportunity to advance your career by working on a diverse portfolio of RTA cases. You will receive ongoing training and supervision to support your further development. You will find a collaborative and friendly working environment and an excellent work/life balance.

Who are they?
They are a law firm with a difference. With nearly 100 years’ experience of successfully representing clients of injury and mistreatment, they work tirelessly to support the Trade Union and Labour Movement and the people they represent. They have built a diverse team of professionals who take immense pride in the work they undertake. They pride themselves on being "the most experienced trade union, claimant personal injury and employment rights law firm in the UK", an accolade that comes from their excellence in client care and their commitment to ensuring their people have access to the very best supervision, mentoring and professional development opportunities.

By providing an inclusive environment, they ensure that individually and collectively they flourish to be the best they can be.

How you will be rewarded
They offer a competitive salary and an extensive benefits package, including a very generous holiday allowance (23 days each year, plus Bank Holidays).

On top of these benefits, they also provide non-stop learning and structured supervision so their people are empowered to be the best they can be. You will discover an environment unlike any other law firm - they aim to create a diverse and progressive culture where highly engaged and competent people are their differentiator. They also recognise that their people have lives outside of work, which is why they ensure you are able to maintain a healthy work-life balance.

They believe that attracting talent that reflects the diversity of the communities within which we live and work is a key part of their business, which is why they are an equal opportunities employer.
