This leading UK Firm, with an outstanding regional reputation for their commitment to client care are now looking to further their offering in Employment Law. They are one of the fastest growing firms in the area who do not compromise on their approach to client care. This has allowed them to consistently win and retain an exciting range of local, regional and national clients.

The Firm

By having a culture that challenges the conventional law firm approach, the firm prides itself on focusing their energy on getting results for their clients while attracting and developing strong legal talent.

The relationship they build and nurture with their clients is of paramount importance, which is why many clients stay with the firm for decades. They understand that one size does not fit all and really take the time to understand each one of their clients' needs and what makes them successful with many client referrals across the West Midlands region.

The firm have a friendly culture throughout all their offices and pride themselves on being hardworking and collaborative. They often cross refer work to other departments and due to their national presence, they can be cohesive to work on a nationwide service line and share work.

The practice is very flexible with remote working. They offer a mixture of working from home and being in the office and try to cater to individual employees' needs.

The Role

The Senior Employment Solicitor joining the team will need to be ambitious, driven and keen to bring on new clients and work. There is existing work at the firm that will be passed across, and as Head of Department, you will have full autonomy (with support ready whenever it is needed) to build up a client portfolio and over the long term, develop a team around them. The firm are looking to invest in the new hire significantly.

You will need to be capable of giving Employment law advice for both employer and employee matters, and the role will be a good mix of contentious and non-contentious work. There will also be an expectation to handle any related advocacy.

This role is a fantastic opportunity for a Senior Employment Solicitor seeking a step up with a leading firm, with excellent career prospects in the next few years. The opportunity also comes with an attractive remuneration package.

  • The ability to confidentially manage your own caseload of good quality work and clients
  • Have an aptitude for business development and marketing
  • Experience managing a team
  • You will be a team player with excellent attention to detail.
