A Legal-500 firm with an excellent reputation both nationally and internationally has an opening within their Employment team for a Lawyer to join the highly-successful Leeds office. This is a fantastic opportunity for an ambitious and driven candidate to work in a supportive environment on a varied and interesting case load.
Our client has advised us that they are looking for an Employment Solicitor to become an integral client-facing member of the Leeds Employment team, acting for some major household names, and supporting the Partners on major projects, while also running some other matters yourself.
As an Employment Solicitor your responsibilities will include preparing first drafts of pleadings, witness statements and instructions to Counsel, liaising with clients, Counsel, the Tribunal and colleagues from across the client business and some tribunal work. The team has a fairly relaxed view towards advocacy and will support you in doing it where sensible but will not force you to do it if it's not your thing! What is important though is team fit so you should be a team player, client focused and a good communicator. This is an excellent opportunity for any newly or recently qualified solicitors, as our client is looking for between NQ to 4 years' PQE for this role, and will prioritise finding the right fit for the job, rather than who has the most experience.
If you would like to find out more, please contact Rachael Mann at Sacco Mann or another member of our Private Practice team. Alternatively, if you know of anyone who would be suitable for this role then please let them or us know as we offer a reward for successful referrals. For full terms please see our website.
