Employment Solicitor (NQ – 4 Yrs PQ, Edinburgh) – Thorntons Law

Employment Solicitor, NQ – 4 Yrs PQ

Thorntons’ Employment law team is expanding and we have a vacancy for a solicitor to join our team in Edinburgh. We act for a diverse range of companies, educational institutions, public bodies and private individuals and the work will therefore be a good mix of contentious and non contentious. Thorntons is one of Scotland’s largest full service law firms with a network of 12 offices across 10 locations and we embrace agile working throughout our organisation. While this role is based in Edinburgh there may be some requirement to travel to our Dundee office on occasion. Ideal candidates will have some previous experience in Employment law and a passion for this area of law. We will, however, equally consider candidates with more general experience with proven ability, enthusiasm and a willingness to learn and develop.
