Personal Injury Solicitor - RTA - £30000-35000 - Greater Manchester/Lancashire

I am working exclusively with this firm assisting in recruiting a personal injury solicitor into its specialist litigation team handling fast and multi track RTA work.

The Firm
My client is a top 100 UK law firm recognised by both Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500 as a leading firm in defendant personal injury litigation. It has a broad client base acting for a wide range of national and international insurer clients.

The Team
You will be joining the litigated RTA team. The emphasis is on the word litigation as you will handle no pre-lit work. Cases all have reserves over £15000 and should be insulated against proposed increases to the small claims track limit. The work is all hourly rate work.

The Role
You will handle a purely litigated caseload of between 40-50 defendant RTA cases. A proven track record of handling litigated work is required as the insurer client encourages cases to be thoroughly investigated and taken to trial.

Person specification
You will have a background handling litigated personal injury work from issue to trial. Applications are welcomed from claimant as well as defendant backgrounds. This is a qualified role so you must be a qualified solicitor to be considered.

Opportunities for progression internally. Supervisory positions and chances to move onto multi track work in the future.
Part time (4 days) available
Flexible start/finish times
Remote working 1-2 days per week once successfully completed probation
