Apply now
  • Small, close-knit team environment
  • Great training and career progression

This is a unique opportunity to become an Employment Law NQ Solicitor within a boutique law firm based in Greater Manchester. Esteemed for its quality of work and supportive work-life balance, the firm is keen to expand its small, close-knit team with a like-minded individual with strong academics.

In this role, you’ll have a broad remit that involves running your own matters and supporting the team with their caseloads. Being part of this small team will mean you are intimately involved in every part of the firm’s work.

Succeeding in this role will mean having solid experience, ideally as a paralegal within an employment law field and minimum 6 months seat during your Training Contract. Your strong academics, alongside your training within a well-known practice, ideally from a Legal 500 law firm, will have equipped you well to undertake the responsibilities of this role.

In return, you’ll receive great training, progression opportunities and the chance to work on high-quality cases. You’ll be part of a small team where you’ll feel integral to the firm’s success. You’ll enjoy a well-balanced work-life split without compromising the level of work you are involved in.

If you’re a well-organised, team player who takes pride in offering an exceptional client experience and you’re looking to join a small but growing firm, this could be just the opportunity you’ve been waiting for.
