The team is undergoing a significant recruitment drive and are on the lookout for candidates with varied experience in EL/PL claims especially those who have experience working for public sector clients and have also gained experience of multi track work. The team is looking to attract a range of candidates who are looking to join a dynamic and highly respected department.
PUBLIC SECTOR CLIENT BASE
The team undertakes a considerable range of work. Associates tend to focus on public sector clients, such as the police, fire, search and rescue and other emergency services as well as local authorities. With that in mind, the range of work is vast, from relatively straightforward personal injury matters to highly complex multi track matters and some catastrophic work.
CLIENT RELATIONSHIP SKILLS ALSO VERY IMPORTANT
Ideally, the department is looking for ambitious Associates with, not only the technical ability to add strength to the team, but also the soft skills to build solid relationships built on trust. Working with public sector clients can be very different to advising insurers or corporates and the team is looking for applicants who understand the importance of developing strong client relationships.
YOUR CAREER MOVING FORWARD
The nature of the client base makes this a unique opportunity to develop your career whilst dealing with a caseload where no one day will be the same. The team has grown considerably in size, but has an excellent supportive culture. This is a rare chance to undertake, interesting, challenging yet highly rewarding work where you will genuinely feel you have made a tangible difference.
