EMPLOYMENT NQ-10yrsPQE YORK (Flexible working)

Our client is a boutique firm which is focused on Employment (respondent) work and is setting its own course in terms of client service and future expansion. Whilst adopting modern working practices this firm is winning market share from its attentiveness, its commitment to quality of service, and it's honest pricing of its services - it might sound simplistic but it is effective! The quality of work is high and the lawyers have a good range of work to be busy with.

They continue to expand through hiring experienced lawyers with followings. As part of their next phase of growth they want to recruit an additional Employment Law specialist, but they are quite open as regards the level of the next person into the business. At NQ level they'd want someone with at least an Employment seat in their Training, and with plenty of enthusiam to get involved and to learn quickly and enjoy high levels of client contact. At a more experienced level the firm is happy to discuss flexible working arrangements, part-time hours (etc) to engage with candidates wanting more flexible arrangements to work around family. And they can also consider senior appointments if a candidate has work to bring and wants to bolt into a practise.

This firm is quite comfortable offering candidates a lot of autonomy and flexibility over their working practises. They enjoy an attractive office location on the edge of York (easily commutable using the A64 and no York city centre traffic to contend with) and the firm is keen to treat its staff well and to allow them flexibility about how they want to work day to day. You can expect to be supported and encouraged as a key member of a team. Remuneration will include a significant bonus element such that you will be expecting better personal earnings for your fee productivity than you'd get in a typical law firm.

Given that this is not a high profile brand they are quite prepared to engage in exploratory conversation with candidates who meet the brief above in order that they can share information about themselves and see what fit there might be. Whilst the office location is in the York area that does not equate to this firm having a Yorkshire-centric capability and so candidates from a bit further afield or whose clients are geographically more widespread are encouraged to apply.

Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.

Brooke Thornham Consulting is a legal recruitment business established in April 2018 as a partial continuation of a previous brand which had enjoyed a successful 10 years of trading from 2007 and built a stellar reputation. With offices in Leeds and Manchester, we specialise in the recruitment of Solicitors from Newly Qualified through to Partner level, and our focus is on the commercial market.

We are well networked with clients in the north of England where we serve an enviable client list encompassing Top 20 national brands and also regional practices and boutique firms. Our trade mark is our pragmatism, and trying to offer value at every opportunity.

We believe that when you give more, you get more. That’s why we’re generous with our time and expertise, and why we go out of our way to understand you, share our knowledge and add something extra – every time you work with us.

We’re experts in our field – and we get results. But over time, we develop something even more important: the intuitive understanding that really special relationships are built on.
