Legal Counsel - Employment

Save job

Global professional services business based in Central London are looking for an Employment Counsel to join their high performing and friendly team, with superb opportunities for growth within the role. This is a hybrid position with 2-3 days per week in the office.

Reporting into an experienced employment lawyer, the day-to-day remit will include:

  • Providing ad-hoc employment law advice to HR and the operations side
  • Advising on TUPE provisions in service contracts
  • Advising on complex and often highly-sensitive disciplinary cases
  • Advising HR and managers on discrimination issues
  • Reviewing and updating internal policies to ensure compliance with developments in UK employment law
  • Delivering training programmes to HR and the wider workforce on employment law
  • Advising senior stakeholders on employment law issues that may arise as part of strategic projects that they are pursuing
  • Developing knowledge and best practice on employment law in overseas jurisdictions in which the business operates

This client believes that the role is best suited to a candidate between the 2-4 PQE level (although all applicants will be considered on merit). You will have trained with a respected law firm. Any in-house or secondment experience would be valuable but certainly not essential. You will have a strong grounding across both contentious and non-contentious employment matters. And you must have an ability to provide pragmatic and business-oriented advice to stakeholders at all levels across the organisation.

Robert Walters Operations Limited is an employment business and employment agency and welcomes applications from all candidates
