Are you an experienced Paralegal, particularly within Employment Law, and looking for a new role?

I am recruiting on behalf of my client, a medium sized extremely well regarded Law firm in the City of London for a Paralegal to join their successful Employment Law dept.

Within the department they act for a wide range of clients.  Working predominantly for a Partner and an Associate Solicitor you will be assisting with a broad range of employment law work.

Working alongside the Head of Department on employment tribunal disputes and non-contentious employment law matters, the duties will include:

  • Assisting the Head of Department and Associate on a caseload of employment matters from start to finish, such as redundancy, unfair dismissal, whistleblowing, discrimination and equal opportunities, bullying and harassment, settlement agreements, disciplinary hearings and

dismissals, and restrictive covenants

  • Advising clients on all aspects of employment law

This role is for a Paralegal and will not be offered as a stepping stone to a training contract as there is no plans for this progression at this time.
