Employment Solicitor - Respondent & Advisory

A pre-eminent very highly rated Chambers and Legal 500 listed national practice is expanding its distinguished Employment Team so it is looking to appoint an Employment Solicitor at Associate level to be based at the firms' Birmingham city centre office.

The firm has won a host of awards and continues to be listed in the Sunday Times' Top 100 Companies to work for. It is a major player in the market and offers bespoke legal services in a variety of sectors to include wealth protection, real estate, technology, charities, employment, corporate and education with a client base consisting of large PLCs, high net worth families, landowners, a plethora of government and public bodies and a number of educational institutions.

The Employment Team in Birmingham comprises 4 partners with a wider national offering of 36 lawyers who are aided by professional support lawyers. The team is keen to hear from a solicitor with a minimum of 1 years' PQE with experience in dealing with both contentious and non-contentious matters to include advisory work, Tribunal claims, whistleblowing, TUPE and changes in legislation. Whilst respondent experience is preferred, the firm is open to those from a claimant background as long as they can demonstrate experience of undertaking corporate support.

The firm not only offers a very competitive salary but also provides one of the best benefits packages on the market which includes lucrative bonuses, generous annual leave, private healthcare and a host of other options.

The practice is renowned for treating all staff as adults, holding them in high esteem and placing a significant amount of trust in them. The firm does not tolerate any form of micro-management and, whilst they expect high standards to be maintained in order to preserve their top tier reputation, they aim to encourage a happy and relaxed working environment where their staff can thrive and develop within their role and be happy working at the firm. As a result, many of their senior lawyers started as trainees at the firm and have remained throughout their entire career due to the opportunities that exist meaning that they have not had to look to competitors to progress their career.

This is an outstanding opportunity to join an envied practice which can offer real job satisfaction, a genuine work/life balance and a collegiate environment with opportunities to help shape the team in the medium to long term future.
