Hours: Full Time
Contract Type: Permanent
As a leading law firm, Michelmores provides proactive, responsive and quality legal guidance across a comprehensive range of services. With our headquarters in Exeter, and offices in London and Bristol, we advise clients across the UK and internationally.
Our open and collegiate culture is recognised as strength by both clients and employees. We are proud of our culture, which has helped to foster a dynamic law firm. Our collegiate style allows us to work well as a team and towards our common aim of delivering exceptional client service.
Our Employment team has an exciting opportunity for an ambitious and talented Lawyer to join the practice working in London. This opportunity would suit an experienced Lawyer who is looking to achieve a better work-life balance whilst retaining high quality workload and who enjoys business development and consistent client contact.
An Employment Lawyer is required to work with an experienced and entrepreneurial team. The role will report into the head of the London Employment Law team who has been recognised as a "Leading Individual" in the Legal 500. You will have the opportunity to further expand your knowledge and build on your experience in this friendly and supportive team.
In this role you will have the opportunity to work on all aspects of employment law in both the private and public sectors. You will practise in both contentious and non-contentious aspects of Employment Law, from drafting contracts and policies, through to assisting on live Employment Tribunal cases.
An interest in business immigration would be considered an advantage.
Whilst a real willingness to be part of an offering where quality of service is at the absolute heart of the team’s practice is a pre-requisite, the ideal candidate will also have a solid grounding in Employment Law from a recognised team at a London, regional or national firm.
Experience and skills required:
• 3 - 8 years' experience in Employment Law is preferable
• Enthusiastic team player
• Excellent attention to detail
• Strong academics
• An ambition to play a part in achieving success
• Excellent communication skills
• Commitment to delivering a high level of client service (both to internal and external clients)
This is a great opportunity to join a fast moving and growing team in our London office and join a progressive and forward thinking Firm where clients recommend us because of the quality of our people and the depth of experience across the whole team. This experience gives real weight at the commercial pressure points of a deal, and has resulted in a reputation in the market for getting deals done.
