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

By providing an inclusive environment, they ensure that individually and collectively they flourish to be the best they can be. They 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. They pride themselves on being "the most experienced trade union, claimant and employment rights law firm in the UK", their friendly working environment and their excellent work/life balance.

The opportunity

Due to continued growth they are looking for an experienced Lawyer to join their team of committed and enthusiastic professionals in their Bristol or Cardiff office. You will be engaged in challenging and rewarding casework as you represent clients who are victims of Road Traffic Accidents, Employers Liability and Occupier’s Liability, as well as occasional cases involving product liability, sports injuries and injuries caused by animals. This will provide a platform for you to showcase your exceptional communication, sound judgement, confident decision-making buttressed by your significant legal knowledge and expertise.

You will have the opportunity to advance your career by working on a diverse portfolio of cases. To ensure you thrive in the role, they 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 a Lawyer with at least 2 years’ PQE, you will deal with all aspects of running a case from initial interview of client to trial, with an understanding of the issues involved in dealing with multi-track cases, such as costs and the litigation process. You will therefore need to be ideally operating as a Court Grade B and run a high quality Multi-Track Accidents case load of values from £25,000 up to £500,000.

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 their clients. You will also be a team player and will enjoy engaging in marketing and business development opportunities.

A day in the life of a Lawyer is never the same, however a typical day may include carrying out relevant investigations, obtaining relevant documents, preparing witness statements; preparing for Conferences and Court hearings (CCMCs/Trials).

Benefits

They recognise and reward high performance, with competitive salaries and an extensive benefits package including:
  • Structured pay scales
  • £4,000 car allowance
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Permanent health insurance
  • Life assurance
  • 25 days annual leave (in addition to bank holidays)
  • Employee Assistance Programme
  • Enhanced maternity and paternity pay
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Organised sports and social club
  • Annual travel and parking loans
  • Financial assistance for professional development

They believe that attracting talent that reflects the diversity of the communities within which they live and work is a key part of their business, which is why they are an equal opportunities employer.
