Personal Injury Solicitor / Legal Executive

Our client is a market leading and well-established practice which continues to buck the trend in the Personal Injury sector by expanding its highly regarded Claimant Personal Injury team in its Head Office in Coventry by the appointment of a Solicitor or Legal Executive.

This is a rare opportunity for an ambitious, enthusiastic and commercially astute Personal Injury lawyer to join a very successful Personal Injury team that is notably different from its competitors in that instead of the emphasis being on high volume and settling a defined number of cases per month, you will have the time to properly investigate claims and ensure that your clients are properly compensated. As you will be pro-active in properly investigating Fast Track cases to facilitate their transition to Multi-Track, you will need strong attention to detail and a very inquisitive mind.

The successful candidate will enjoy a varied caseload of RTA, employers' liability and public liability matters and knowledge of Conditional Fee Agreements and MOJ portal usage are essential together with good IT skills. Multi-track experience would be advantageous, but not essential, as extensive training and support will be provided in relation to high level quantum and Multi-Track procedure.

It is envisaged that the role would suit a Personal Injury Lawyer with ideally at least three years' experience of dealing with pre-litigated and litigated Claimant Personal Injury cases, however applications from more junior Solicitors with relevant experience in RTA, EL and/or PL matters will also be considered. You will be well versed in dealing with liability, quantum and causation and you will be proficient in drafting a variety of Court documents. You will also have a proven consistent billing history, experience of working in a target driven commercial environment and excellent client relationship skills.

In return you will be paid a very competitive salary and an extensive benefits package. You will enjoy secretarial support and you will be able to earn bonuses of up to 25%. You will also undertake extensive client home visits so this is not just a desk-based role.

This firm puts its staff at the heart of everything it does and you will enjoy a relaxed atmosphere that is a world away from a traditional law firm, so this is the perfect opportunity for someone to move away from a high volume and compartmentalised Personal Injury firm and gain exposure to more complex and technically challenging matters. There is also an agile working policy in operation which is currently evolving to provide even greater flexibility for those that don't want to adhere to a strict "nine to five" role.
