Due to the continued growth of the team, our client, an international City firm, is looking to recruit a 2-5 PQE Employment associate in London.

The Employment Group is independently recognised as one of the best and most experienced teams in the country. It has one of the best resourced teams of Employment specialists of any law firm in the country, offering both national coverage from UK and an international offering in offices in Europe, the Gulf, Asia Pacific and Australia.

Lawyers act as trusted advisors to a number of leading FTSE blue chip organisations (both in the UK and internationally) and clients rely upon them to help them not only with technical legal issues, but also to act as true business partners, understanding the particular challenges and opportunities within their respective sectors and businesses.

The successful candidate will have at least two years' Employment law experience in a commercial practice, having built up technical and market knowledge and with specific experience of dealing with strategic employment law advice, complex employment tribunal claims, cross-border issues, restructuring and redundancy, complex grievances at a senior level including discrimination and whistle blowing complaints and senior executive/board room issues. The role may also involve high value and High Court litigation, so experience in this area will be an advantage. In addition, the successful candidate will have the opportunity to help clients to deliver solutions within the M&A and outsourcing space, so an appetite for this type of work would be beneficial.

The candidate will have a strong academic background and will be technical strong. Equally important, candidates must be commercially aware and understand how a large international firm operates. They will also be a team player, with excellent communication skills and a desire to help to grow the team and be actively involved in multi-disciplinary cross-office initiatives.

Please note that where a level of preferred experience or qualification is indicated, this is a guideline only and does not preclude applications from candidates with more or less experience.
