Snr Associate (Partner level considered), Employment

A relatively unique role presents itself for an experienced Employment Solicitor to join one of NI’s premier legal brands.  Entering the firm at a senior level, you will have a clear route to potential partnership (the client may even consider this level as a point of entry).    You will be joining a team that successfully handles a range of contentious and non-contentious respondent work on behalf a range of local and national employers. (public and private sector).

About the Role.

Although you will be joining an existing department and absorbing a certain level of work, you will also have a keen interest in wishing to grow the department, the team handles a range of NI work and occasionally advises on ROI and Eng. & Wales Employment matters.  Multi-jurisdictional experience will be a strong advantage.

The experience you will offer is expected to include:

  • Significant level of qualification and experience of working within a busy Employment department within a large firm or niche/boutique employment practice.
  • Experience of handling NI based work a strong advantage (ROI or E&W also considered).
  • Experience in dealing with contentious and non-contentious matters on behalf of large commercial clients.
  • Experience of representing clients at tribunal
  • Ability to instigate and foster excellent working relationships with internal and external stakeholders to include company directors, head of departments and external counsel.
  • An ability to demonstrate a high level of business acumen
  • Team management experience would also be an advantage.

This employer offers an excellent salary and benefits package.  However, the non-financial reward of joining a growing company with a prestigious brand will also contribute to a high level of job satisfaction.  To discuss this or other similar level legal jobs in Belfast, contact Stuart John in confidence on +44 7803146424 or +44 28 90 995746 (direct dial)
