Employment Solicitor 4 years PQE +

Oxted, Surrey

£40,000 - £60,000 dependent on experience + flexible working

Full or part-time hours

An incredibly exciting opportunity has arisen with a thriving law firm in Surrey. Our client, who focusses on using technology and knowledge to deliver first class client services, are looking for an Employment Solicitor with 4 years PQE to develop their Employment Department. There is a small flow of work coming in each week which they would like to deal with in house.

The role is offering a salary of £40,000 - £60,000 dependent on experience and because this is a newly created position, there is real opportunity to work entirely autonomously and make the role your own, and the firm is happy for you to work remotely/flexibly.

The firm is renowned for their commitment to their staff, and offer a supportive, open and friendly working environment with an emphasis on work/life balance.

The role

As they don’t currently practice in this area, the partners are looking for an ambitious and dynamic individual with a proven track record of business development, with the drive to grow the employment department into a significant part of the firm.

The right person for the job must be confident enough in their experience and ability to assume a stand-alone role, committed to delivering high levels of client care and dedicated to developing the department.

You will deal with any employment queries and matters brought to the firm, working across a variety of different cases, for both employers and employees.

What they’re looking for

  • At least 4 years PQE with experience handling an array of Employment matters
  • Strong client facing and technical skills
  • Commercial awareness and Business Development focus
  • Ability to work independently, juggling a busy caseload


What they can offer

  • Generous salary
  • Remote and flexible working
  • Continuing professional development support
  • Opportunity to be a key part of a progressive, supportive, forward-thinking law firm
