Job Description

 

Are you an employment solicitor with at least one year PQE, experience of acting for the respondent, and considering a new role in the Edinburgh area?

If so, then this role may well worth contacting me about.

One of the country's leading international law practices has a requirement for an employment solicitor with at least one year post qualifying experience, ideally with a ranked legal 500 practice, a niche commercial practice, or perhaps work outside of Scotland currently and be looking to return home.

The nature of this work will be both contentious and non-contentious. 

As previously mentioned, you will take on a predominantly respondent caseload for an incredibly impressive client bank. These clients are not restricted to Scotland, so candidates keen to work with cross border, including city, clients are encouraged to apply. The role will also involve international aspects so candidates keen to expand their skillset into this area would be of interest.

Whilst the west coast employment market has been fairly buoyant of late, roles of this calibre have not been seen in Edinburgh for a good few months.

My client, due to their set up can offer you a role at assistant solicitor level that is essential within the Edinburgh office. You will not just be a small cog in a massive machine as their Scottish operation is more boutique than the rest of the wider, international firm. As such, you will enjoy the support of an impressive international outfit, whilst having the responsibility and one on one support available at a niche or boutique firm. It really does offer the best of both worlds.

This role can offer you the potential for secondment with some of the country's leading companies at a later date having offered this to previous solicitors within the firm. 

Whilst the spec does request solicitors to have at least one year PQE, my client has given me assurances that consideration will be given to exceptional NQ's. 

For additional information please do not hesitate to contact Neil Campbell at QED Legal via the details provided.

I look forward to hearing from you.
