Competitive salary with extensive benefits, performance related bonus and flexible working

Against the backdrop of significant investment, growth and internal promotion, Slater and Gordon have an outstanding opportunity for a dynamic individual with significant knowledge and experience to join our successful Employment department as Head of the Private Employment Team in Manchester.

In this senior role you will lead performance through effective supervision and coaching, networking, analysis and planning. You will be responsible for all aspects of managing the work of the Employment team as well as proactively generating further work.

We believe there is real opportunity for growth of our Manchester practice which is already independently rated as a market leading Claimant Employment practice.

The right individual will have the opportunity to carve out and develop this practice, with the significant backing and resource of a national firm and an already strong performing team.

At Slater and Gordon we’re looking for people who are excited by the prospect of joining a non-traditional firm and future-proofing their career with the opportunities that come with that.

People love working at Slater and Gordon because they have interesting, quality work they would not get elsewhere and are given opportunities based on their strengths and potential, not on time-served or their place in the hierarchy.

About you:
• Are you determined, persistent, and achieve your goals whatever obstacles might get in your way?
• Do you take a real pride in whatever you do and believe that whatever happens, it’s down to you to get results? Are you someone who is great at getting things done quickly whilst still delivering to your naturally high standards?
• Are you approachable? The type of person who connects easily with other people and who quickly establishes trust with clients? Do you love those days at work when you know you’ve really made a difference to other people?
• And are you great at seeing the ‘wood for the trees’ in understanding what’s important and get excited about learning new things that will help you excel?

What we offer in return:
In return we offer a competitive salary with market leading benefits, a positive and inviting work environment, exposure to industry specialists and the fantastic opportunity to develop a rewarding and successful career with an award winning law firm.
