Full Time

Our Dispute Resolution & Professional Negligence department houses a variety of litigators who, whilst they ultimately all look to assist our clients to achieve a positive outcome having been exposed to a negative incident, come with a wealth of different skills and expertise.


As the department grows, in order to manage all of these different skill sets effectively, the Head of Department is keen to work closely with an experienced solicitor who will essentially assist him to develop and run the operational side of the department.


Your background will likely come from either a Dispute Resolution, Professional Negligence or Civil Litigation field, as you will still manage a small caseload of files, but you’ll be able to take on the operational and functional aspects of making sure the department continues in its forward momentum.


Over and above managing a small file allocation, your role will include:

  • Reviewing case stocks across the department
  • Reporting on the performance of the team against their KPIs
  • Looking at areas of performance to iron out any hold ups or bottlenecks
  • Offering advice to the HoD around solutions to overcome any workflow issues


Ideally you’ll come with some experience of a Team Leader or Manager role, but importantly have an operational mind-set, be able to spot problems in pipelines, and have the ability and desire to work with the HoD to develop working strategies. 


In return we would offer you a basic salary in the region of £50,000 plus bonus and benefits.
