Commercial law firm in Manchester is looking to add an Education lawyer of between 0 and 2 years’ PQE to its Education law team. The teams’ clients include independent schools, boarding schools, academies and their sponsors, further education colleges, local authorities, diocesan boards of education, regulatory bodies, independent learning providers, educational charities and professional associations. The ideal candidate will have experience of acting on both non-contentious and contentious education matters and both transactional and operational issues in the education sector. The solicitor will work with the firm’s Education team nationally advising clients on a range of project-based work including academy conversions and also the full range of education law operational matters relating to state funded schools. This is a genuine opportunity to become part of a successful and expanding national Education team that will support your career development. While receiving appropriate training and development opportunities working alongside the teams’ partners, the successful candidate will also have autonomy to make the role their own and will be expected to engage heavily in business development and profile raising activity.

If you are newly or recently qualified you will have undertaken a seat in either Education law or general Commercial law. Similarly, if you are already qualified you will currently specialise in either Education law or Commercial law.
