In-House Defendant Personal Injury Fee Earner

Location:

Salary:
£27,000 to £35,000 per annum
Job type:
Permanent, Full time
Practice area:
Defendant Personal Injury, RTA
Job reference:
FRH55283
This vacancy has now expired.

Are you a Personal Injury Fee Earner with a strong background managing RTA and credit hire claims? Are you looking to try something in the New Year and would you like to escape the target driven, often high volume environment of private practice? If so, it could be the right time for you to make the move in-house.

Our client, a multinational public transport provider, is recruiting into their in-house legal team. This is a rare opportunity as the team has such a low turnover they have not needed to recruit for a number of years. In this role you will run a small caseload (approximately 50) defendant RTA files. With fantastic benefits attached, this in-house personal injury fee earner role should certainly not be missed.



The Role:
-You will join a successful in-house legal team consisting of ten fee earners and three support staff. The department is the in-house legal team within a large transport provider.
-You will run your own caseload of defendant personal injury claims, mainly focusing on fast track, pre-litigated RTA claims.
-There may be a small amount credit hire claims for you to pick up alongside this if you have experience managing credit hire matters.
-This role is unique and our client places a huge emphasis on quality over quantity. As such you will only run a maximum of 75 files.

The Candidate:
-It is essential that you have experience and are fully confident running an RTA personal injury caseload from start to completion. You should also have some credit hire experience.
-Ideally you will come from a defendant background but those from a claimant background will also be considered.
-Your application would stand out even further if you had experience of bus work but this is by no means essential as our client fully recognises this is a niche area.
-Our client promotes a healthy work life balance and has a really low turnover of staff. They are looking for the right candidate who can fit into their close knit team.
-You must have a full clean UK driving licence.

Benefits:
-Competitive Salary
-Free on-site parking
-25 days holiday + statutory
-Flexible working with the likelihood to increase your holiday allowance by an extra 12 days per annum
-No billing targets or time sheet recording and no requirements to complete any business development
