What KPMG Law is looking for from its lawyers:

• an entrepreneurial self-starter who is excited by the opportunity to provide legal services in a different environment and manner to a traditional commercial law firm as part of fully integrated multi-disciplinary practice
• commercially minded and keen to become a more rounded business adviser focused on delivering a great service to clients
• a driven and proactive team player who enjoys working with people from different backgrounds and disciplines
• keen to assist with the development of junior team members
• a relationship builder who can spot and develop new opportunities and client relationships both within the KPMG network and externally
• high level of technical knowledge of UK employment law
• intellectually curious, open-minded and analytical people, with an eye for detail and pride in their work

Employment Legal Services:

• The applicant should be a team player with an entrepreneurial spirit and be prepared to work in a different way to lawyers in traditional law firms.

Experience Required:

• It is expected that the successful applicant will have between 7 and 10 years’ PQE with the majority of their career spent at a reputable practice in a well-regarded Employment team, and probably now at the level of Senior Associate (but applicants with other suitable experience will also be considered).
• KPMG is looking for a confident client-facing employment lawyer with strong technical, supervision and relationship-building skills.
• The applicant will be experienced in working on complex and high value employment law matters and will be the key employment law contact for a number of large clients.
• They will be used to supervising more junior team members and will have demonstrated excellent business development skills through cross-selling and through winning work using their own initiative.
• They will be confident in presenting to clients and in training colleagues and in leading pitches and proposals.
• The applicant should have a good understanding of how to ensure that work is carried out profitably and with due consideration of risk.
• Experience of advising alongside other professionals (such as tax or immigration advisers) and of running the employment work- stream on cross-border transactions would be valuable.
• Ideally the successful applicant will have advised on (or be keen to upskill on) the employment law aspects of:
- Gender pay gap projects and equal pay audits
- National minimum wage projects
- Holiday pay compliance
- TUPE/Outsourcing/Reorgs and redundancies
- Employment status reviews
- Intra group transfers of employees including international assignments
- Procurement of temporary staff using employment businesses and agencies
• Experience of project management and co-ordination of multi-jurisdictional projects is also invaluable.
• This is a growing team and the role will suit an aspiring, technically excellent, employment lawyer with the desire and ability to work closely with the Partner, Director and other Senior Managers in helping to lead that growth.
