Industrial Disease / Occupational Health Associate 1-4 PQE – Manchester
Industrial Disease Solicitor – Manchester (UK) – One of our leading defendant insurance practices is currently looking to hire an industrial disease solicitor with litigated defendant industrial disease experience.

Industrial Disease – overview
- Job title: Associate (1-4 PQE)
- Location: Manchester
- Salary: £35,000 – £40,000
- Reports to: Partner (Head of Department)
- Previous Experience: litigated disease experience gained preferably from a defendant firm. Candidates will be expected to be capable of handling their own litigated caseload including HAVS and NIHL as well as assisting on higher-value claims.

The majority of the work undertaken by industrial disease solicitors within the team is litigated. The successful candidate will be encouraged to build their own caseload of technical NIHL and HAVS work. However, the role also offers the opportunity to gain exposure to more complex work including mesothelioma / asbestosis-related work.

The client is looking for candidates who have ideally cut their teeth in a reputable defendant practice and already have a thorough understanding and appreciation of how to run a litigated caseload. That said, strong claimant candidates will also be considered. This is a ‘top tier’ practice that continues to grow and develop in the Manchester market and wishes to attract candidates with ambition to drive the team forward.
