Are you a claimant personal injury solicitor interested in moving into defendant work? If so this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

I am working exclusively with this top 100 UK firm recruiting into its specialist litigation team handling fast and multi track RTA work.

You will be responsible for handling a non-delegated, mainly litigated, fast track (some multi track) caseload of approx. 40 cases. High client interaction is expected in the role therefore excellent client care skills are paramount. You will be a strategic partner to your insurer client getting involved in identifying trends with the goal of driving down claim spend.

This opportunity would see you work in a supportive and supervised team environment where you would handle your own litigated defendant RTA work. The emphasis is on not just settling claims but thoroughly investigating and litigating whenever possible.

Applications are welcome from candidates with litigated RTA claims handling experience. Full training will be provided for those coming from a purely claimant background. The team deals with hourly rate work and only qualified solicitor/CILEx candidates can be considered. It has also been found that those from an insurance fraud background have made a good transition to this team.

The firm is situated in Lancashire/Greater Manchester and has good links by rail and road with subsidised parking and a car lease scheme available to all employees. Additionally once probation has been passed there is the ability to work remotely from home 1-2 days per week.

This is an excellent opportunity to work for a market leading firm in a modern working environment offering a supportive team structure and realistic routes for future progression. The level of work the team deals with also means that it offers security from the proposed changes to the small claims track limit.
