The successful employment lawyer can expect to be involved in advising the business on the employment elements within contractual agreements; corporate transactions; managing claims, disputes, grievances, and disciplinary matters; and advising on internal policies and procedures. Interest and experience in advising on a full range of employment advisory, litigation and corporate support matters is important.

The successful individual will be one of three employment lawyers and will report into the UK General Counsel.

A hybrid working pattern is in place, but candidates should be prepared to spend 1 day a week in their London office.

Candidates should ideally be able to demonstrate:

  • Upwards of 5 years' PQE in advising on a full employment law caseload
  • Experience gained within top tier employment teams and/or multinational professional service companies or consultancies
  • Experience in advising on employment advisory, litigation, and corporate support matters
  • A genuine interest in working for one of the Big 4
  • The ability to start a new role immediately or at short notice

The role is to start ASAP. Ideally candidates will be available to start immediately, although short notice periods can be accommodated.

A competitive day rate is on offer for the successful employment lawyer.
