Managing this Role


Ray Birkett

Senior Recruitment Consultant - North West
0161 240 3763

Join a firm that will value your contribution and push you to achieve your professional goals in 2022 and beyond. You will join a close-knit Employment team that works alongside some of the world's largest employers.

The Firm:

This Top 20 law firm has an abundance of Tier 1 rankings across the legal directories and a client base made up of FTSE 100 companies and international PLCs.

The Manchester office is one of the firm's key global sites. As a result, you can expect to gain exposure to multi-jurisdictional work and an unrivalled client base that spans multiple continents, including the US, Europe and the Middle East.

The firm is known for nurturing and developing its Lawyers, and you will have a transparent progression path in a creative and forward-thinking environment.

The Role:

This is an opportunity to join a market-leading Employment team as an Associate in the firm's Manchester office.

You will be involved in work that is unparalleled in the region. You will be working closely with some of the world's largest employers on high-value litigation and multi-jurisdictional projects across various sectors, including finance, tech and energy. The team is regularly involved in creating new laws as well as advising on them, giving you the opportunity to make a difference.

This opportunity moulds around the individual, with the opportunity to specialise in contentious or non-contentious work and focus on specific sectors. You can also follow the traditional path to partnership or move into a Learning & Development role as a Professional Support Lawyer in the future.

Progression to Senior Associate within the team is transparent and will likely happen around 5 - 6 PQE. You will also receive a market-leading salary and benefits package, an impressive bonus, and a good level of flexibility (2 days in the office per week).


  • As a guide, this role would suit an Employment Lawyer between 1 - 5 years PQE
  • Experience gained across contentious and/or non-contentious Employment Law
  • Experience acting for Employers is essential
  • Relevant sector exposure (tech, finance, energy, retail, industry) is advantageous but not essential
  • Comfortable with client contact and building relationships
