An award-winning market leader in clinical negligence and personal injury is looking for a costs lawyer (or non-qualified fee-earner) with two to five years’ experience to join its large and established costs department in Greater Manchester.

The role comes with excellent career prospects as part of a large, growing department and hybrid working.

You will handle your own caseload of litigated and non-litigated claimant personal injury cases, so you will need to be comfortable with all aspects of costs work, including budgeting, and be a confident negotiator.

You’ll be able to work part of the week from home or fully remotely if you wish, as a result of the firm’s generous hybrid working policy.

Your benefits package will include an enhanced holiday allowance plus Christmas closure and your birthday off, private medical insurance and death in service.

The firm is well-established, financially stable and has just announced its best-ever financial results to date with turnover up by 14%. In 2021, the firm was one of only 12 UK Top 100-200 law firms to grow by more than 10%.

The firm enjoys fantastic Legal 500 rankings and attracts high-quality work from several reputable insurers.
