Our client is currently looking for a Solicitor (0 to 5 years PQE) to join their Claimant Asbestos Related Disease team in Manchester. The team deals purely with asbestos disease claims, mainly mesothelioma, with a high percentage of litigated cases being dealt with on an expedited basis in the High Court. The work requires very strong technical skills.
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.
The ideal candidate would ideally have Claimant asbestos related disease experience.
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.
Experience of asbestos disease litigation would be ideal; however we would look at candidates with a strong Claimant personal injury background who have a genuine interest in handling asbestos related claims and have solid claimant personal injury experience which is essential for the role.
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.
