Job Details

The employment team is highly rated in the Legal 500 and Chambers, and is well regarded nationally. They can boast of an impressive client list of SMEs, PLCs, local authorities, not-for-profits and charities, as well as high level executives. To support further growth there is now an opening for a 2 + PQE Solicitor in the employment team to be based in their office in the heart of Chester.

Reporting to an excellent Senior Associate, you will have responsibility for a mixed caseload of contentious and non-contentious matters with some supervision. Some experience of advocacy would also be valued, but isn't essential to being hired.

This firm is looking to recruit an employment solicitor who has a solid academic record and training/ PQE from a similarly highly rated team. Commercial agility, diplomacy skills and sound judgement will need to be demonstrated at interview.

On offer are a top end salary and full benefits package including:

  • 25 days annual leave
  • Contributory pension
  • Death in service
  • Healthcare

This is a great firm to join as a junior lawyer where you will be given the support and freedom to develop your skills as an Employment Solicitor.

Please click 'apply'. Don't worry if you don't have an up to date cv, contact Joe Rees directly to get the ball rolling. Any reference to PQE and salary is for guidance only.

Recent Testimonial: I would definitely recommend Nick to anyone. Nick was really helpful throughout the process and also kept in contact throughout. He met me on the morning of my interview to give me tips on questions to expect but also provided me with more background information on the company. After meeting with Nick, I felt prepared and confident for the interview. Highly recommended! Court of Protection Solicitor
