We are committed to continuous improvement and our increasing success as a business is built on achieving success for our clients.

We are proud that what we have achieved has been recognised over the past few years, being awarded Best Companies star status on a number of occasions and featured in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For. We are also a silver standard accredited Investor in People Company, which means we are recognised for our efforts to improve work place engagement, leadership, personal growth, wellbeing, team working and our impact on society.
Our highly regarded Employment team are looking for an experienced Solicitor to join them in our Milton Keynes office.
The successful candidate can expect a varied caseload, including some claimant work, with the majority of the work being defendant. There is a need to supervise less experienced team members so experience of this would be an advantage.
Consideration will be given to candidates with between 4 - 8 years PQE with strong employment experience.
We have a clear Diversity and Equal Opportunities Policy in place and it applies to all aspects of recruitment, employment, promotion and training.
Part of this is providing an inclusive work environment where everyone has the opportunity to succeed; and making sure there are no obstacles based on sexual orientation, disability, age, gender, marital status, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, pregnancy and maternity, religious or philosophical belief.
