  • £65000 - £140000 per annum

An exciting new role has arisen with a major UK law firm who are looking to recruit an Employment Solicitor to join their Leeds City Centre office.

The firm is known for working with some of the world's most ambitious and rapidly growing businesses and has a network of offices working together as one national team, meaning there is great opportunity for development and growth with your career. The firm has an outstanding reputation and is an 'Employer of Choice'.

The department handles a genuine blend of work, this includes complex project and advisory work as well as acting for some of the UK's largest household names in relation to their tribunal work. Advocacy skills are not essential however if you are interested in advocacy you will of course have the opportunity to undertake this.

They are looking to grow and want to recruit a couple of accomplished employment solicitors; they are open minded about the level of experience you have and could look at people from the early stages of their career right through to those either on the cusp of partnership or even at Partnership with a strong business case.

If you are junior Employment Solicitor, they would be looking for you to have a strong grounding in Employment work, largely for respondents, and be able to pick up some of your own matters but would fully expect to support you in the more complex and larger scale work.

If you are a more senior Employment Solicitor, they would be looking for someone who again has strong respondent experience but who is capable of not only working largely unsupervised, but who can also help supervise others. They would want you to be able to take a lead with client relationships and get involved in the wider business development within the team.

As mentioned before, for a partnership appointment there would need to be a clear and demonstrable business case, however they are proactively looking to strengthen the partnership base within the Employment team so this is something that they are very open to..

The team has a strong position in the market, both locally in Leeds and nationally and their clients are largely from the private sector and cut across many sectors , including media, retailers, transportation, to name a few.

As well as the technical work the team deliver a lot of client training, and run topical seminars, they would be looking for you to get involved in this whatever your level of experience.

Overall, you will be keen to become a part of a solid team working in a vibrant environment.

A competitive salary with full benefits is on offer for the successful candidate.
