Defendant Credit Hire Fee Earner – Market leader – Three days from home – ILEX welcome

Apply now

Our client, a market leading law firm, is looking for a Defendant Credit Hire Solicitor to join its successful team in Manchester city centre, working from home three days per week.  

You’ll handle a varied caseload of Defendant Credit Hire claims, working within a team dedicated to dealing with several the UK’s largest insurer clients and managing a caseload of litigated Small Claims and Fast Track Credit Hire Claims up to a value of up to £100,000. 

The right candidate will come from a defendant background and have experience of handling litigated credit hire matters. The firm welcomes qualified solicitors, non-qualified fee earners/ those studying for ILEX, etc.   

This international firm carries significant prestige and its teams are some of the best-paid in the market. It has so many top-tier rankings, awards and accreditations that we frankly couldn’t list them all here if we wanted to.   

Established nearly 100 years ago and growing – both organically and through acquisition – there aren’t many securer places to start, grow or end your career.   

The firm has an impeccable employee retention rate, and it is not uncommon to see someone still happily progressing there 10 years in. This is partly to do with quality and complexity of work, but also because it has a proven track record of promoting from within.  

People speak very highly of the firm and in particular feel that they are working with inspiring team members at the very top of their game. In addition, they laud the opportunities, support and training they receive.   

It goes without saying that this firm offers one of the best benefits packages in the market for its people and their families.  

The people we place here are often looking for a new challenge and more responsibility as part of a highly prestigious global team. The operate in highly specialised markets, so this firm is great for those that want to sharpen their commerciality and gain niche skills that command a higher salary and even greater respect.  

And you won’t be sat behind a pile of papers all day. If a more well-rounded career is what you’re after, this firm are big on forging long-term relationships and will provide the unique opportunity for you to go out and meet clients at their businesses. The commerciality you will develop here is a much in-demand skill firms look for from their future equity partners, or indeed in-house counsel positions.   

For those wanting to see the world, there could also be opportunities to be seconded to other offices, of which they are 60 across the globe.
