Healthcare Lawyer

Apply now
  • Qualified solicitor or CILEX with 1+ years’ experience
  • Three days working from home
  • Structured progression routes
  • Develop a highly sought-after specialism

A national law firm is seeking a Healthcare Lawyer (qualified solicitor or CILEX) with at least one year’s experience to join its team in Leeds and build a highly successful care in the field.

The firm offers up to three days per week from home, and your days in the office will help you progress your career even quicker, as you’ll be learning directly from some of the most successful and prominent lawyers in the field – the talent at this firm absolutely swamps the Legal 500 and Chambers rankings, paving the way for you to do the same.

The firm is on the highly sought-after NHSR panel, and you will develop a valuable specialism in acting on behalf of NHS Litigation Authority and NHS Trusts, protecting their interests.

In the role, you will manage litigated and pre-litigated defendant healthcare claims, conducting relevant investigations to repudiate or conclude the claim, liaising with third parties.

This national firm has its sights firmly set on growth and reaching the top 30. Along with these ambitions, it remains determined to retain the down-to-earth culture it has managed to continue to cultivate over its rich 200-year history.

While it can be hard to differentiate between the firms at the top, this heavyweight provides its team with an unbeatable combination of upper market pay, lots of progression opportunities and an impressive level of flexibility, while keeping a relaxed and friendly environment.

You will get plenty of opportunity to move up the ladder – which, by the way, is well-structured, with proper rungs on the ladder and a clear graduation in job titles. You’ll also get a pay review at least every 12 months.

Equality and diversity are super important to this firm – and this isn’t something they just say to tick a box, they actually live and breathe it. They recognise that not everyone will take a traditional route into law and provide lots of help and support for those doing CILEX or taking a non-qualified fee earner role to get qualified and move up the ladder.
