About The Team

The Employment Team is ranked in Band 1 in Chambers & Partners and led by Rena Magdani, recognised as a Leader in the Field by Chambers and Partners and The Legal 500.

Comprising over 48 employment specialists across the country, the team provide a specialist employment law and HR advisory service to a range of companies from PLCs to SMEs.

About The Role

We are seeking an employment barrister/lawyer, to join our friendly and dynamic employment team. You will be a skilled advocate capable of representing clients at employment tribunal hearings and be able to provide employment advice to a range of clients from PLCs to SMEs, including advice on disciplinary and grievance matters, unfair dismissal, discrimination, TUPE, whistleblowing, redundancy, restructures and strategic advice to senior management teams and boards. Ideally you will be based in our Leicester office (although we can be flexible on location to include Birmingham / Nottingham) working directly with the... head of our Employment, Pensions and Immigration team, Rena Magdani.

You will have circa 5+ years experience and perhaps be looking for a change of direction and new challenge, where you will receive support in progressing your career in private practice. You will ideally have experience in both the ET & EAT.

The nature of the work is fast paced and our clients’ interests are paramount so you must possess and demonstrate an enthusiasm, energy and passion for employment law, have exceptionally strong communication skills and work well in a team. The team takes a holistic approach to their work, offering a corporate level of service with a personal touch and over 90% of their work involves acting for the employer.

The team also continues to experience rapid growth, so this role would suit someone who is looking to get involved in business development.

This is an excellent opportunity if you are ambitious and eager to make a reputation for yourself in a highly regarded national firm.

We are passionate about supporting our lawyers in their career development and client relationships. We trust our people to work flexibly in the way that works best for them, their teams and our clients. Our firm is set up to ensure everyone’s voice is heard, and mutual respect is shown by all.

Smart. Bold. Together. We Are Freeths.

Become part of the team at Freeths.
