Typically, you will be 0-3 years PQE, to have gained the required breadth and depth of experience for this role.
A band of PQE as advertised on a role does not preclude applications from those candidates that may have more or less PQE. Our intention is only to indicate a guideline as to how long we would expect a qualified lawyer to have practised so as to have gained the necessary skills for the role as described.
We will consider applications from exceptional candidates with strong non contentious property experience and a commitment to developing a contentious career.
In addition to the above, Eversheds Sutherland also require awareness and full participation in the Firm’s commitment to equality and diversity, the environment and health and safety.
We’re a modern, progressive law firm. We think differently and we’ve built a culture where individual skills and personalities can shine through.
