Employment and Governance Lawyer is required to join a social enterprise firm on a permanent basis which is a lead on providing services to public sector clients.

You will be required to undertake a caseload of contentious and non contentious employment matters. There will be a full range of matters due to handling a range of clients and this will include unfair dismissals, TUPE, HR related matters, equal pay and general employment claims to name a few. Advocacy in employment tribunals will be part of the role.

There is a strong level of advice work involved in this role due to a number of clients needing advice on an adhoc basis so candidates must feel confident in providing written and oral advice on a regular basis.

As this is a split role, there will be a significant amount of governance related work which will be undertaking investigations on behalf of other local authorities in the area. There will be a real range of advice related matters and candidates must have experience in this area alongside employment law.

This role would be well suited to a candidate who has 3 years PQE + and a strong background in employment and governance law within a public sector organisation or alternatively dealing with public sector clients in private practice.

This firm is an alternative business structure of three local authorities and provides legal services to a range of other public sector bodies which include NHS, CCGS and charities in the area alongside other local government bodies. They have a flexible working policy, the option to work from different offices or based in one office and the opportunity to apply to the local government pension scheme.

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Chelsey Newsom in our Manchester office for a confidential discussion.
