Employment Solicitor

This well-established national law firm is looking for a Senior Employment Solicitor to join their highly successful, Band 1, national team. Alongside the quality of work on offer, what differentiates this opportunity is the genuine level of flexibility that they offer, they don't prescribe a specific number of days that are office based, some choose to work almost entirely from home, others prefer to be more office based but the choice is genuinely yours meaning it really doesn't matter where you live.

Key to this role is strong experience within the health and social care sector. They are looking for a senior lawyer who can lead and build client relationships, supporting the partners leading the team, as well as working as part of a multidisciplinary teams across the practice where needed.

We are ideally looking for someone with a leaning towards non contentious work who can be a senior, go to, person for this within the practice. This requires a strong experience base within TUPE, undertaking transactional due diligence (often as part of a wider team), advising on restructuring, employee relations including settlement negotiations, drafting contracts and advising on all employment related matters. Whilst the focus it on non-contentious matters there is plenty of scope to offer you contentious work too if that is something that you specifically want to do.

At this level of experience, you will be fronting up client relationships and taking a lead role with clients across the public and private sectors.

You will have the opportunity to work across a variety of teams and whilst the focus is on health work you would also be able to undertake work in broader markets that they work in. It would be ideal if you have some experience of working for health-based clients and those operating on frameworks however this isn't essential. What goes without saying is that you will get to work on novel and complex employment law issues.

Our client has a great reputation as an employer and for having a modern approach. Whilst they offer access to some incredibly high value and complex work, they are not a firm that expects unreasonable results or particularly long hours so you really could have a great work life balance whilst undertaking outstanding quality work as part of a national team. As already mentioned, they offer an unusual degree of flexibility as to where you work, whether that be the office or from home and don't prescribe a specific number of office days.

They are a keen to recruit an experienced employment solicitor who ideally has at least 8 years PQE, however you could be much more senior and up to Legal Director level.
