Solicitor – Police Misconduct and Civil Liberties department (Maternity Leave)

Saunders Law seeks a solicitor to join the Police Misconduct and Civil Liberties department. The candidate will undertake a mixed caseload of civil claims against the police and other public authorities, judicial reviews, and inquests, with the opportunity to work on high profile matters such as the Hillsborough civil claim. The candidate should have at least some experience in all three of these areas, with strong experience in civil claims against the police and/or inquests. It would also be helpful if the candidate held Legal Aid Supervisor status.

The role is principally to take over an existing fee earner’s caseload while she is on maternity leave, but we would seek to support the candidate in developing their caseload in line with their own professional expertise and interests. We are a busy department and so there may be scope for the role to become permanent in the future.

We are looking to recruit someone with at least 2 years PQE, and anyone with strong experience is encouraged to apply. We would be particularly keen to recruit someone with 4 – 8 years PQE.

Salary will be dependent on experience.

This is an exciting opportunity to join a friendly, busy, and expanding department. We are ranked in Chambers and Partners and the Legal 500. We offer a competitive salary, excellent prospects, training and support. We are open to discussing part-time or flexible working, or possibilities for remote working, though we would expect candidates to be based in the UK and to be able to attend the office from time to time.

To apply, please send your completed application pack to recruitment@saunders.co.uk by 9am on Monday 5 October 2020.
