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.
Due to continued growth we are looking for an experienced Senior Supervisor to drive our highly successful Asbestos team in our London Office. You will have the opportunity to deliver full and effective methods of supervision of case work relating to Asbestos, taking responsibility for best practice in marketing, client care and ensuring case management standards are implemented and upheld throughout the team. You will work towards achieving the required operational and financial performance driving the success of the team and Branch as a whole, whilst you actively mentor, develop and supervise a team.
The ideal candidate would be an admitted solicitor or FILEX with significant post qualification experience and would possess strong supervisory skills with excellent client care and interpersonal skills, coupled with an enthusiasm to train and share experience. The role would require the successful candidate to have experience in training to our union clients, colleagues and at other marketing events.
The successful candidate would also possess awareness of the issues of costs litigation, sound business acumen and keen attention to detail. We encourage all of our lawyers to be strong advocates for the work we do and to actively engage in marketing and business development opportunities by cross selling services, e.g. with local/regional union officials and events. Dealing with our union clients and colleagues, as well as at other marketing events requires the candidate to have good understanding of the relevant statutory and common law legal practice and procedures with the ability to be able to clearly communicate this knowledge to your audience.
A day in the life of a supervising lawyer is never the same, however a typical day may include effective management and monitoring of cases and taking proactive steps to ensure all cases are conducted in line with our visions and values, in a manner which uploads our clients’ interests and the firm’s reputation.
