Our client is currently looking for an NQ Solicitor to join their Clinical Negligence team in their Manchester office.
Personal injury and illness can have a dramatic and sometimes life changing impact for the person affected and for those who are close to them. The personal injury teams at Irwin Mitchell work with our clients and their families to provide a unique, bespoke approach that really makes a difference to people whose lives have been turned upside down.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a Clinical Negligence team based in Manchester. The team handle medical negligence claims for people who have suffered illness or injury as a result of substandard care in any medical setting to include treatment from a GP, hospital, clinic or dentist. The work is very varied and includes all types of medical negligence casework, including birth injury claims (including injury to both mother and baby), spinal injury claims, surgical claims, orthopaedic claims, neurological claims, fatal accident claims, delay in diagnosis or delay in treatment and incorrect or inappropriate treatment.
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.
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.
We offer a competitive salary and benefits package including pension, critical illness cover, health cash plan and death in service benefit.
