Employment Solicitor - Head of Department.

Senior role at one of Northamptons leading legal 500 and chambers listed firm. With a chance to spearhead the devlopment of your own team over time

Excellent benefits package on offer including a good salary (which will be dependent on experience), generous pension scheme, private healthcare, on site parking available and much more.

Opportunity for an experienced employment lawyer to make the step up to a senior position. To begin with you will be the sole lawyer dealing with employment law matters but with the intention that this team will grow over time. There is work to be serviced as the firm does already have a good reputation in this area but it is envisaged the successful candidate will develop this area further.

Chance to join a firm that genuinely aims to promote a healthy work / life balance for all their staff and have an approachable and supportive management structure. They trust people to do their work to a high standards to maintain the excellent reputation of the department of the firm as a whole but do not micro manage or expect lawyers to give up their life outside of work and are not advocates of people working from home and after hours which is a far cry from other commercial type firms. This creates a good positive and happy atmosphere in the office which is far removed from many of the large commercial firms and this allows their lawyers to perform their work to a high standard without work politics causing unnecessary stress allowing them to have successful careers.

You will be mainly working with employer clients and dealing with both contentious and non contentious matters. As well as the technical side of things and dealing with the work coming into the department based on their current excellent reputation you will also have the opportunity to get involved in the business development activities of the department.

Please apply ASAP to be contacted with further details on this position.
