Employment Partner

  • £125000 - £190000 per annum
  • Leeds, West Yorkshire
  • Permanent

This highly commercial Northern firm with a strong base in Leeds are looking to recruit an Employment Partner who is capable of picking up and working with existing clients but importantly can work with the Partners to help drive the team yet further forward.

This would suit someone either at Partner level who is looking for a greater degree of autonomy and independence than they already have, or you may be approaching partner level who is looking for clarity of career opportunity. It may well be that you are within a good team but one where there are already a strong base of partners and perhaps not the ability to easily create the business case for an additional partner.

The firm have an excellent reputation both locally and further afield and undertake a broad range of both private and public work so whatever sectors you have worked within there is likely to be a useful overlap. There are various sectors that would be softer targets for anyone joining given the firms underlying client base but them simply not having enough resource to target these clients employment law work - two of these include:

Education - they have considerable contacts within academies, schools and colleges which would mean that anyone joining with employment law experience within these sectors should make a flying start at growing this work and be able to make an impact very quickly.

Social Housing - very much as with the education sector, there are a lot of long standing, existing clients who are not currently being serviced by the employment team providing the opportunity to add considerable value very quickly.

They are not confining their search to these sectors and whilst they are a highly commercial firm they are able to be really competitive with fees and it may well be that you are struggling to service your contacts within the structure and constraints at your current firm, we have seen many law firms fees rise steeply recently, they would be able to help you with this which could not only protect but also allow you to expand your contact base.

This firm have a track record in supporting in the further development of clients and your career, they also have a great culture, they are collegiate and focus on their people and clients equally. They have a very flexible working environment and appreciate that people work in different ways and encourage this to get the best out of everyone making this an excellent option for those wanting a long term career opportunity within a firm that they are highly likely to want to be part of for the long term.
