A new vacancy has arisen with a small commercial firm in Oxfordshire – in urgent need of an experienced Employment Law Solicitor to help one of the partners for a few months (until the end of October). It’s a slightly odd one as the partner wants the locum to take over conduct of a large and complex Employment Tribunal case (the final hearing of which is 15th-22nd October 2021). You would probably be required to attend the hearing to support counsel . There is a significant amount of work to be carried out over the coming 4-6 weeks (additional disclosure, bundle, witness statements etc) but its difficult to say how many days per week will be required. It would probably suit a locum/consultant who already has one part time role or someone wanting the equivalent 2/3 day’s work per week.
If things worked out well, there might be further work to give the locum over the coming months but the firm can’t commit at this stage.
