In a legal area that changes fast, this is paramount and working alongside a progressive and proactive, knowledgeable team is a fantastic benefit of this opportunity, as you'll be surrounding yourself by some exceptional individuals in their field.


  • You will be an Employment Solicitor with ideally at least 2 years PQE (there is no upper limit regarding the amount of experience)
