An excellent opportunity has arisen to join the Asbestos Related Disease team for a leading national law firm based in Birmingham. Initially on a 12 month fixed term maternity cover contract, but with the potential to extend this for the right candidate.
The ideal candidate would ideally have asbestos related disease experience.
The candidate will work under the supervision of a partner but, depending on experience, will be expected to handle a full caseload within a short period of time.
Candidates will need to have excellent client care and communication skills, given the particular sensitivity working with terminally ill or recently bereaved clients.
Experience of asbestos disease litigation would be ideal; however we would look at candidates with a strong personal injury background who have a genuine interest in handling asbestos related claims and have solid claimant or defendant personal injury experience which is essential for the role.
The successful candidates will also need to show that they can cope well under pressure and maintain excellent time management skills with the ability to multi-task and keep to tight deadlines.
In addition to your competitive basic salary we have an exciting benefits package including a contributory pension scheme, critical illness cover, health cash plan, death in service, discounted legal services, 25 days hols (this increases with length of service), discounted online shopping, season ticket loans, childcare vouchers
