Eventus Legal are seeking a Solicitor with experience in Employment Law to join a regional North-East firm. The successful candidate will be working alongside experienced and highly regarded Solicitors within their Corporate and Commercial team. The role is a permanent position.
The incoming Employment Solicitor will be expected to handle a caseload primarily claimant/employee based (with some respondent work), but both contentious and non-contentious. You will be part of the corporate and commercial team, but will work across the firm advising other teams, such as dispute resolution, when the need arises. Therefore, this is a key role for the firm.
We are looking for qualified employment solicitors ideally within a minimum of 3 years PQE, although candidates outside of this will be considered provided you can demonstrate substantial prior experience.
You will have experience in handling both employee and employer work, with a strong work ethic and the intuition to manage a busy workload with minimal partner supervision. The successful candidate must have excellent client communication and interpersonal skills and be committed to achieving the best possible outcome for your client.
You will be joining an incredibly supportive and team orientated organisation with an excellent benefits package alongside a market-leading salary. On-site car parking, generous holiday allowance and medical insurance are some of the benefits on offer. You will also be supported by a dedicated Paralegal and team secretaries, although as a fee-earner you will be expected to be stand-alone.
The firm is very flexible and welcoming and is open to applicants wishing to work on a full or 4 day per week basis.
About the Company
The firm is a highly successful regional law firm, with an established client base tracking back over decades. They have a number of offices throughout the North-East and have many experienced and highly-regarded individuals working for their firm.
