We are looking to recruit a Solicitor or FILEx with up to 2 years PQE to assist the Partners in our specialist Asbestos Team. This is a full time role and you will be required to assist in all aspects of claimant asbestos litigation. In the longer term, it is intended that the successful candidate will be allocated a small caseload while continuing to assist the Partners. Ideally, you will have experience of working on asbestos disease cases although any litigation experience will be considered. Experience of dealing with fatal cases will be an advantage.
Essential skills required include an ability to be empathic and sensitive when dealing with clients and to be able to proactively move cases forward. In addition to casework, the successful candidate will be expected to be actively involved in business development including dealing with the team’s social media presence and attending events.
The role is envisaged to be a mix of working from home and attending our London office each week (subject to COVID-19 restrictions). This is a rare opportunity to join a well-established and reputable team and to become a specialist in this niche area of the law.
If you are interested in this role, please send your CV, covering letter and current salary details to Alice Simmonds at ASimmonds@hja.net
