Are you an Employment Solicitor looking for a new challenge? Are you looking for a role that offers genuine career opportunity with no restrictions on your progression? Our client is genuinely open about the level of pqe that you offer, yet whatever your level you would have the opportunity to play significant role in the development of the Leeds based Employment Law team within this internationally recognised firm.

They a leading international law firm with a fantastic reputation and expertise spanning three continents. The firm has a particular specialism within the healthcare sector, boasting an excellent client base of both public bodies and private corporations, and is now looking to expand its Employment offering in Leeds.

They have an established team nationally but are looking to further develop their presence within Leeds and are considering Employment Lawyers at all levels. If you have more than a couple of years PQE it is likely that you will have solid respondent experience, be comfortable with direct client interaction, and happy to get involved with clients from a training perspective too. The work itself is hugely varied, most Employment Lawyers will be happy to hear that there is limited corporate support but other than that the do the full spectrum of both advisory and litigation work. Given the sectoral specialisation there are all kinds of weird and wonderful issues that arise that would be certain to keep you stimulated. There are also wider considerations, often have political implications which add an interesting dimension. Despite these quirks, they don't need you to have had prior experience within the sector, they can prioritise fit for the clients and team, as well as quality of experience.

Working with the firm's existing clients means that you will be heavily involved with other teams from day one, allowing you to really become part of the office from the offset. Moreover, the office in Leeds has an incredibly collegiate environment, meaning support and resources are always there when needed. Personality is, therefore, equally as important to our client as professional experience and a like-minded individual, with a great team spirit would be a good fit.

Whilst the Leeds team is currently relatively small, you will have the opportunity to interact with the team on a national basis both professionally and socially, as well as with the wider office.
