Clyde & Co is seeking an ambitious and entrepreneurial employment lawyer to work on EPL matters for the firm's key insurance clients.
About the role
We have an opportunity available for an experienced employment lawyer to work closely with senior partners in the contentious insurance practice running EPL matters for the firm's key clients. In this role you will be an integral part of the growth of the firm's employment capability providing a unique opportunity to develop your own practice. You will have a good amount of autonomy in this position and be expected to manage your own case load, however you will have regular access to the partners for guidance and direction.
Fostering and generating client relationships is a key element to this role and you will be afforded with many client facing opportunities and encouraged to strengthen and develop your own client relationships. This position really does offer a unique opportunity to join a truly international firm and work with sophisticated and well regarded clients while being supported to develop your own personal brand early in your career.
Through our one firm mentality, Clyde & Co provides a genuine opportunity to work with lawyers and partners in our international network.

As an employee of Clyde & Co, you will be entitled to all of our benefits and an open environment where work life balance is supported.
Skills and experience
We are seeking an experienced employment lawyer with 4 – 6 years post qualification experience; it is not necessary to have experience in insurance for this role.
