  • Hybrid working 
  • Fantastic career development opportunity working directly alongside head of department 
  • Join in a critical stage of growth – lots of opportunities to progress quickly 
  • Free parking 

This is an exciting opportunity for a newly qualified solicitor to join the litigation team of a friendly, full-service firm based in Staffordshire and embark on a successful career in the field.  

Working directly alongside the Head of Litigation, you’ll learn quickly by supporting on cases involving breach of contract, shareholder disputes, landlord & tenant, complex debt recovery/insolvency, professional negligence and construction disputes.  

The firm specialises in working with retail and healthcare sector clients, so there will be ample opportunity for you to build highly valuable sector-specific experience too.  

The firm is also part of a wider legal group with ambitious expansion plans – so you’ll have the best of both worlds, able to form a close bond with a close-knit group of teammates while benefitting from the progression opportunities that naturally come with being part of a larger outfit.  

This will include access to the learning, training and development opportunities that the group will be offering to all firm employees, such as leadership courses. The firm also has plans to move to new high-spec offices soon.  

You’ll also be supported in building your own profile as an expert in the field, both by the firm and the wider legal group’s marketing department. 

The firm also offers free parking, an Employee Assistance Programme with medicash for private healthcare, 25 days of holiday plus bank holidays, pension scheme and an hour-long lunch break. 

The right candidate will have experience of commercial or civil litigation, either from their training contract or from a paralegal position.
