Solicitor - Education - All Offices
We are a recognised genuine education sector expert and market leader which has benefited from dynamic growth in our education practice over the last five years. The depth and breadth of our offering coupled with a national office network (five offices) continues to be a winning combination and the firm now boasts a national client base of over 1,000 education sector organisations including maintained and independent schools, boarding schools, academies and their sponsors, further education colleges, local authorities, diocesan boards of education, regulatory bodies, independent learning providers, educational charities and professional associations. The team is ranked in Band One nationally for Education by both Chambers and Legal 500 and prides itself on its friendly, supportive and dynamic culture.
We are seeking to enhance the education team through the recruitment of a newly qualified to seven years PQE solicitor with general education law experience. The ideal candidate will have experience of acting on both non-contentious and contentious education matters and both transactional and operational issues in the education sector. The solicitor will work with the firm’s education team nationally advising clients on a range of project-based work including academy conversions and also the full range of education law operational matters relating to state funded schools. This is a genuine opportunity to become part of a successful and expanding national education team that will support your career development. While receiving appropriate training and development opportunities working alongside our team of partners, the solicitor will also have autonomy to make the role their own and will be expected to engage heavily in business development and profile raising activity.
