Vacancy: Employment Lawyer (PQE 5+), Brighton
Martin Searle Solicitors is an award-winning law firm providing specialist legal advice and representation in employment law and community care law. Last year we won the Law Society Excellence Award in Business Development Service for our innovative new Services for Professional Deputies, providing legal support in community care law and employment law.
We have a strong local and national reputation for our equality work, particularly pregnancy and maternity discrimination and disability discrimination cases. We are Investors in People and Lexcel compliant and have offices in Brighton, Croydon, Haywards Heath, Shoreham, Eastbourne and Gatwick. The team are also ranked in the 2017 edition of the Legal 500 for Kent, Surrey and Sussex.
You will be an experienced employment law solicitor, Chartered Legal Executive or Case Worker, with at least five years PQE/Employment Law experience. You will be used to dealing with a high volume of work which ideally includes converting new enquiries into paying clients. We are looking for a team player with a passion for employment law who enjoys litigation work, particularly dealing with discrimination cases for employers and employees.
Due to the high volume of work you need to be organised and proficient in using case management systems. You must be able to carry out your own advocacy to at least Case Management stage and preferably can conduct final hearings rather than instructing Counsel.
You will assist us in continuing to build our reputation as a community law firm with integrity and commitment which provides a high quality service to all our clients. We are committed to working together in supportive teams to ensure we all excel.
An Equal Opportunities employer we will consider applications from candidates who wish to work flexible hours on a full or part-time basis.
