Job Details

Senior Employment Solicitor/Partner - Cambridge.

A national law firm are looking for an experienced and ambitious employment lawyer to join their team in Cambridge and help spearhead the development of the employment law department in that office. 

The successful candidate will be an experienced respondent employment lawyer able to deal with both contentious and non contentious matters. You will have a background of working within employment teams of well respected commercial firms and it is likely you will currently be at senior associate or partner level in your current or recent position.

Immediate partnership will be a possibility for senior lawyers who are able to bring a following of work to the firm. Alternatively for those joining at Senior Associate level you will be put on a partnership track and will be able to look forward to that progression within a relatively short space of time..

In addition to the above it is also essential that you are able to demonstrate a flair for business development and  will either have clients that are likely to follow you to a new role or at least an eagerness to get out there and utilise any connections you have built up over the years business develop to grow the department further. This is by no means a standing start type of roles as the firm as a whole has a very strong employment law team so there will be work fed through. However, a key part of this role will be to work with the senior management of the firm in order to develop this offering in the Cambridge market.

The firm has a fantastic reputation throughout Cambridgeshire and they are looking to hear from lawyers who are ambitious to progress their careers with the aim of building up a department and team around them over time as they continue with their plans to develop the Cambridge office. 

The salary for this role is dependent on experience with any followings to be taken into account. Any brackets shown are for guidance only as this will be very much negotiable and dependent on the individual candidate but it will be at the top end of market rate and as part of a an excellent overall benefits package including bonus schemes.

This firm is one that continues to go from strength to strength in the past few years in Cambridge and has exciting plans for the future, so this would be the ideal role for someone that wants to come in and really make a name for themselves in the Cambridge market within a firm that already enjoys a strong national presence and reputation.

The first stage would be to just have an informal chat to explore the opportunity to make sure it would work for both parties so if it is something you would potentially be interested in discussing further, with no obligations, please feel free to get in touch.

For further details please feel free to contact Greg at QED legal by telephone, email or linkedin.
