Taylor Law is a young, ambitious and rapidly expanding firm. We have offices in Middlesbrough, Leeds and London.
• Excellent Salary.
• Benefits Package to be agreed
We are a panel firm to the Police Federation of England and Wales. We therefore represent police officers in connection with criminal/misconduct allegations, at coroner’s inquests, in complex civil litigation against their own forces, personal injury claims, applications for judicial review, police pensions, wills and probate, family and employment work.
In addition to the Police Federation, we receive a regular flow of instructions from insurers, companies and private individuals.
Due to an increase in instructions, we are looking to add to our team with the addition of an employment solicitor to based at our Leeds or Middlesbrough office. The role comprises a mainly claimant caseload of whistleblowing, victimisation and discrimination cases, although the successful candidate will be expected to be able to deal with the full spectrum of employment matters.
Knowledge of Police Discipline would be an advantage though not essential.
The successful candidate will be expected to help actively market the firm in order to continue to build our profile and maintain and develop relationships with our clients/referral sources. Marketing events will regularly occur both after hours and at weekends. The ideal candidate will therefore be both affable and flexible.
Although all levels of PQE will be considered, the ideal candidate is likely to have in excess of 5 or 6 years PQE, as the work can be complex.
Candidates with a significant background in advocacy, with previous experience in acting for police officers and/or with experience of any of the other practice areas the firm works in will be at a distinct advantage.
Regular travel will be required between the Leeds and Middlesbrough offices. Access to a car is therefore a pre-requisite for the role.
This is a rare opportunity to deal with very interesting work from repeat sources.
Applications are by way of an emailed CV to Mrs Sue Taylor at email@example.com and will be dealt with in the strictest confidence.
No agencies please.
