Medical Negligence Lawyer – Full or Part Time – Salisbury or Amesbury [or possibly Andover] office

Are you looking for the opportunity to work with an exciting and progressive firm which continues to grow? We are seeking an enthusiastic and motivated lawyer to join us to conduct a caseload of mainly medical negligence and possibly some personal injury work[ depending on your experience].

The right candidate will be able to show;

  • at least 4 years’ experience of claimant medical negligence cases
  • the ability to run a caseload unsupervised – though as part of a supportive specialist team
  • good organisational and excellent IT skills
  • good time management skills
  • high standards of customer care
  • a current driving licence and access to a car as our compensation claims workload is not just local but regional – and you would be expected, from time to time, to travel to see clients, especially if they are unable to travel themselves.

In addition, the following abilities are useful though not essential;

  • the ability to conduct personal injury and general litigation work
  • experience of using a case management system
  • It’s also important that the successful candidate has the ability to be largely self-supporting, with some limited administrative support– if either the candidate can type their own correspondence and much of their other work, or will enthusiastically adopt the use of voice-activated software for typing

The job is suitable for a an experienced lawyer – but qualifications are not absolutely essential. The right experience and genuine ability is what we are really looking for.

So, if you are a confident, well-presented, friendly and approachable specialist medical negligence lawyer with excellent communication skills, we want to hear from you.

The team?

You will be part of a three strong [currently all solicitors] specialist medical negligence and personal injury team headed by Denise Broomfield, a member of both the AvMA and Law Society Clinical Negligence panels. There are only around 180 solicitors in the country on both of these highly regarded panels.

The caseload?

Currently over half of our work involves medical negligence claims and you should expect most, if not all, of your caseload to involve those type of claims.

If you are a medical negligence specialist with no experience of general litigation, then you should expect your caseload to consist of purely accident and medical claims and you will be based at our Amesbury or Salisbury offices.

However if you have the ability to run a general litigation caseload as well, then we will consider placing you at our Andover office.

NB despite the likely introduction of fixed fees for medical negligence claims next year, we remain committed to this area of law and believe that quality claims of this type will continue to be profitable

Full-time or part-time?

The current holder of this position, (who has sadly been headhunted by a large firm) works four days a week. We are confident however that the firm’s current personal injury and medical negligence workload will continue to grow, but  in order to get the right candidate on board, we are happy to be flexible on hours if necessary.

However we are equally happy to take on full-time applicants.
