We are working with a Legal 500 Employment Law Boutique in South Manchester on this outstanding progression opportunity for an Employment Solicitor with 5+ PQE to join their fantastic team.

There’s plenty of work to get your teeth into, as well as you’ll find lots of scope to fast-track your progression within this team, including promotion opportunities to senior associate and salaried partner.

The firm was set up just under a decade ago by two leading Employment Lawyers after working for international law firms. The team deal with top-quality employment law matters on behalf of both employees and employers, including blue chip companies and international clients.

The firm is very well-regarded in the Legal 500 and you’ll work closely alongside several Key Lawyers.
