Thompsons Solicitors are a law firm unlike any other. With nearly 100 years’ experience of successfully representing clients of injury and mistreatment, we have the privilege of working with and supporting the Trade Union Movement and the people they represent.



By providing an inclusive environment, we ensure that individually and collectively we flourish to be the best we can be. We are recognised as one of the UK's leading teams by credible directories including The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners, as well as being highly recommended in The Times’ Best Law Firms 2019. We pride ourselves on being “the most experienced trade union, claimant and employment rights law firm in the UK”, our friendly working environment and our excellent work/life balance.





The opportunity



We are looking for an experienced and highly skilled Legal Advisor to join our team of dedicated professionals in our Plymouth office to provide a range of general legal advice to Trade Unions. You will have the opportunity to specifically advise and where necessary, sign off Settlement Agreements.



With a passion for blending your technical expertise with your outstanding communication and client care skills, you will take pride in delivering a first class service to our clients. Having the confidence and ability to take appropriate daily decisions on cases to ensure swift progression will be key to your success. To ensure you thrive in the role, we will provide you with structured supervision, coaching and training as well as a nurturing environment, where you can grow and shape your career.



The role



As an admitted solicitor/legal executive, you will be assessing and advising on settlement agreements and identifying any issues which may arise according to the needs of each client. Contacting union officials and members will form a large part of this role and will include development and promotion of this service.



You will therefore need to have excellent knowledge of employment law advice and settlement agreements in particular. The role requires excellent prioritisation skills and meticulous attention to detail to enable you to construct clear and effective arguments, yielding the best result for our clients. You will need to show empathy and understanding, providing a professional legal service with a personal touch.

Dealing with incoming post, emails and calls
Dealing with outgoing post, emails and calls
