The Team

The Employment division comprises over 50 fee earners and, as the UK's leading supplier of employment law services to NHS bodies, carries out work for around 200 NHS and private healthcare bodies throughout the UK, alongside clients in all our other major sectors. The division provides legal advice and training on the full range of employment law issues, supporting clients from board level to generalist HR practitioners, and has a reputation for handling the most sensitive and high-profile employment law cases. This is a great opportunity to work for a growing team within a Top 100 law firm that prides itself on being able to offer top quality work, excellent career prospects and a healthy work life balance in a supportive working environment.

The Role

The role will involve working on a range of contentious and non-contentious matters including general employment advisory work, the handling of employment tribunal claims, whistleblowing, high profile cases, advising on reorganisation and redundancy issues and the application of healthcare legislation to routine employment law scenarios. The candidate should have good client handling skills and be able to work well with other team members.

Capsticks is committed to recruiting the best people to maintain its status as legal adviser of choice and, whilst previous experience in the field of healthcare or public sector is strongly preferred, it is not essential. Candidates will however be expected to be able to demonstrate at interview that they are self-motivated and commercially minded, as well as having good interpersonal skills and being able to work effectively in teams.

This is a great opportunity to join a driven and dynamic market leading firm.
