Opportunity for an ambitious employment solicitor to join a boutique firm that is the market leader in the area of law it specialises in, attested to by their Legal 500 Tier 1 ranking. The nature of the work they undertake is such that there is necessarily a HR and employment law angle; however, they are not as well-resourced on this front as they would like and are accordingly looking for a dynamic and driven employment solicitor who can effectively take the lead and help them grow on this front.
