Solicitor (Serious Injury) - NQ to 2-year PQE – Southampton

Job Summary

What are we looking for?

Are you interested, or do you have a specialism in Personal Injury? Are you someone who cares for the people you are representing? We are looking for a Qualified Solicitor (NQ to 2 years PQE) or a Senior Paralegal (seeking career progression) to join our award-winning team specialising in Personal Injury.

The cases we represent cover a broad range of personal injury, but they are all serious catastrophic life changing injuries which include brain, amputation, fatality and spinal injuries. We work with leading charities and we are rated #1 in this area of law within the Legal 500 and Chambers for both team and individual level.

So, you’ll be working with the best Partners and Solicitors in this specialist area of law. Learning from them and working on life-changing cases where your empathy and your desire to make a difference ensure you are impacting the lives of your claimants.

Maybe you are someone that can demonstrate your interest in this area of law through your extra curriculum activities where you have worked with charities or your education involved specialist knowledge of personal injury? We’d seek to support you if you were able to demonstrate this commitment.

This opportunity is suitable for individuals who have Claimant catastrophic injury litigation experience. However, candidates who have a background in Defendant catastrophic litigation will be considered provided that a cover letter is provided as to why the candidate wants to now specialise in Claimant work.

Our culture is open, diverse and inclusive; it’s an environment of belonging, where people can thrive and be the best version of themselves. We strive to nurture our people and offer enjoyable, fulfilling, and sustainable careers. This includes providing the best training, great pay and rewards, and more control over work life balance.

We are inspired by people who want to make a meaningful difference. As an employee, it’s important to understand the strategic direction of the firm, and your role in helping to achieve it. We encourage our people to be open about their ideas and views and to tell us what they think. Everyone at Moore Barlow has a part to play in our success.

We embrace the future, empowering each other to lead the way. We adapt to be relevant and innovate to stay ahead, always learning and seeking to improve

Our business practice is to offer a range of specialist services through our business brands of Audit and Advisory, Company Secretarial, Corporate Finance, Financial Planning, Forensic, Outsourcing, Payroll and Taxation. Our Solent practice recently found itself requiring the services of an additional PA to strengthen our secretarial team. With unsuccessful advertisements placed in the local press we engaged the services of Key Personnel Management Limited. Within twenty four hours we had received pre-selected quality CV’s, and in a week we had conducted interviews had employed a highly competent PA Secretary. The Partners would certainly engage the services of Key Personnel Management Limited again, their professionalism, conduct and service delivery is highly recommended.
