In House Employment Lawyer/Experienced paralegal
In House Employment Lawyer Job in central Bristol - Excellent Benefits - Home Working
Your new role
My client is looking for an employment lawyer or experienced paralegal to join their growing team in central Bristol, acting for clients on a broad range of employment disputes. The role involves managing a mixed caseload of employment claims of varying degrees of complexity.
You will be taking initial instructions, providing clear and accurate legal advice while progressing claims pro-actively and in a timely manner in line with the terms of the client's legal expenses insurance policy. You will act for clients on the full range of employment disputes, managing conduct of the claims from the initial assessment stage through to final hearing and beyond to enforcement where appropriate.
This is a great opportunity if you're ambitious and eager to make a career for yourself. You will ideally have experience of managing a caseload of employment claims, gained from a private practice or in house/legal expenses insurer background: qualified solicitors, legal executives or experienced paralegals are encouraged to apply. A good understanding of employment law and employment tribunal procedure is essential; experience of dealing with legal expenses insurance-funded claims would also be desirable but not essential.
What you'll get in return
This role offers excellent benefits, with the opportunity to work from home one day a week. The hours are 9am - 5pm and the offices are in central Bristol. You will receive a competitive salary and pension and generous holiday entitlement.
