Our national client have recently opened a new office in Manchester city centre and are looking for suitable NQ solicitors to help expand the firm.

The Role

The role itself is very broad including drafting, advising and reviewing commercial documentation and specialising on tax incentive schemes.

The firm is not expecting applicants to have had experience in all of these areas, but the successful candidate will in time be involved in all of these sectors to a greater or lesser extent.

The successful candidate will be given a high level of responsibility and client contact, will be heavily involved with networking and marketing and will be expected to take a lead in business development in Manchester.

The Candidate

The ideal candidate will be a newly qualified (NQ) solicitor with experience in commercial / corporate work. The successful candidate will work directly with clients and will be expected to manage their own work and those of paralegals working for them.

The successful candidate will act for founders and startups to help them set up and grow their businesses. The role will involve supervising trainees and paralegals and assisting the managing partner with drafting, reviewing and commenting on the firm's work.

Good communication, client care and organisational skills as well as accuracy and drafting ability are all required.

Our client envisages that candidates who are newly qualified (NQ) or have 1 year PQE will have the relevant skills / knowledge for this position, however this has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this PQE range but who have the relevant experience.

If this position isn't for you but you know someone who could be suitable then please let us know. We offer a reward fee of £250 for any successful referrals. For full details please see our website.
