About Eversheds Sutherland:
Eversheds’ employment law team is one of the largest in the world. With more than 100 employment lawyers and more recognised experts in the UK than any other firm, we have the expertise and resources to deal with matters of any size and complexity. The quality of work we can offer is unparalleled. Our clients include many of the world’s largest and most sophisticated employers and the matters we advise on range from multi-jurisdictional projects to high value litigation in the Employment Tribunals and the High Court. We are regularly advising on ground breaking or high profile employment cases.
By getting under the skin of an organisation and understanding its issues, our people often play a strategic role as well as a legal one, providing long term thinking that helps clients get the outcomes they want.
Team members carry out leading work for major organisations; making the law as well as advising on it. The resources of an international firm allow all of our lawyers to produce their best work and use their imagination as well as legal skills to provide a great service to our clients.
We are seeking an Associate (1-2 year PQE) to join the Manchester team to handle a broad range of employment work for commercial sector clients.
You will form an integral part of an energetic team of specialist Employment solicitors within a challenging and rewarding area of law. Whilst a supportive and structured approach will be given to supervision, knowledge management and personal development, we expect all our team members to possess a 'can do' approach to their workload.
Skills and experience:
A broad knowledge of employment law is required and we are looking for a candidate who is 1-2 years qualified.
You should be a team player, client focused and a good communicator with a strong practical and commercial approach to your workload and advice to clients. You will have a genuine enthusiasm for employment law, be passionate about delivering an excellent service to clients and welcome the opportunity to engage in business development.
Experience of tribunal advocacy would be beneficial.
We're a modern, progressive law firm. We think differently and we've built a culture where individual skills and personalities can shine through. At Eversheds, we believe that innovation comes from a culture of genuine equality and diversity and we are happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments individuals may require in the recruitment process, or once in post.
Choose Eversheds and you join a business on an exhilarating journey to cement its position as one of the leading international law firms. Combined with the hugely varied national and international opportunities available, your experience here will, inevitably, be stimulating and enriching. You'll be given the opportunity to really use your talents and build a career, not just fill a role. We'll give you development opportunities, clear career paths and regular assessment so you can judge your progress.
Eversheds endeavours to recruit and fill vacancies directly. However, when we do need to engage with agencies, Eversheds operates within a preferred supplier list.
