My Client are recruiting a mid-level employment associate, with 3-5 years of post-qualification experience, to join a growing employment department in a well-established commercial practice.
The employment team represents a broad range of clients from listed corporations to mid-market and emerging businesses and advises clients on all aspects of employment law and HR best practice. The team is well known for its pragmatic and commercial approach which is delivered in a creative and supportive manner. The practice also focuses on in-house client training programmes and HR delivery.
The ideal candidate will be a technically strong employment lawyer who is seeking responsibility, client contact and the opportunity to advise a broad range of client issues principally from an employer perspective. It will particularly be of interest to someone looking for a modern approach to supporting clients, providing consultative employment/HR advice, and an opportunity to join a department with aspirations for growth and development. You will need to have excellent client care skills with the ability to communicate directly with clients at a senior level, strong technical skills, particularly drafting, presentation and research, be IT literate and able to work well under pressure.
Our work is a mix of advisory, contentious and transactional matters, predominantly on behalf of businesses/respondents. Some of our projects in the last year include the implementation and design of a new pay and grading structure, a workforce restructure and redundancy exercise, the design and delivery of a management and leadership programme, the management of disciplinary, grievance and performance procedures and the management of TUPE transfer arrangements.
Previous employment law experience at a well-regarded commercial firm is required, along with a keen interest in business development.
