Advocate

We are establishing a new in-house advocacy team which will provide services across our legal services teams, including but not limited to Commercial Litigation, Employment, Family, Personal Injury & Medical Negligence.

The team will work to ensure that we are providing services to our clients in the most efficient and effective way and will extend to drafting and advisory work as well as advocacy both remotely and in person.

Geography is less important than ever before and so we are interested to hear from candidates who are situated across England & Wales.  At Irwin Mitchell we continue to work flexibly but with the key focus being on delivering the highest quality service to our clients.

Your Role

The successful candidates will work closely with colleagues across the business to ensure that the very best service is provided in meeting our client’s needs.  Excellent communication skills will be of paramount importance in the building of relationships with the case handlers who are looking after our clients on a day to day basis.

The work will certainly be challenging and engaging with regular exposure to courtroom advocacy and significant opportunity to explained your experience and expertise.  Drafting and advisory work will also form an important element of the work of the team.

We are looking for individuals from all disciplines, however if you have specific experience in Family, Employment or Commercial Litigation we would like to talk to you. 

What we can offer you

  • 25 days annual leave, with the opportunity to buy additional leave
  • Two fundraising days in a year to give back to the community (fully paid!)
  • Westfield Health membership, offering discounted leisure and travel and refunds on medical services
  • Access to the firm’s pension scheme
  • Professional costs (practising susbscription/PII) met by the firm.

We also offer a huge number of well-being initiatives to encourage positive mental health both in and out of the workplace as well as flexible working options to ensure that you are fully supported to work the way that best suits you. Our social responsibility programme is fundamental to who we are. We’re committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace where our colleagues can flourish. We have a range of groups to celebrate our people across sexuality, disability, age, gender and culture. 

We welcome applications from all diversity groups and backgrounds. We’re committed to enabling everyone to thrive and understanding and celebrating our differences is a key part of that. We’re proud of our work on the Disability Confident scheme, on the Race At Work Charter and as Stonewall Diversity Champions. We also have a range of networks for LGBT+, disability, generations, gender, social mobility, ethnicity, faith and culture to celebrate our people and to enable everyone to thrive.

Irwin Mitchell

We’re a national law firm with a local reach. Our philosophy is ‘Expert Hand, Human Touch’ – something you’ll find in the way we work with our clients and how we support our teams. But, we’re more than just a law firm – we’re a team, working together to help individuals and businesses navigate life’s ups and downs.

Whichever team you join, working here you’ll feel a part of our friendly and inclusive environment. We’ll value you for who you are and what you bring. We support each other and push boundaries to achieve incredible things, and make a real difference to our clients and communities.

The work we do has been recognised in the awards we’ve won. We’re committed to being even better, and our awards help to show we’re on the right track.

We recognise that the office 9-5 isn’t for everyone. That’s why we’ve introduced ‘Flexible by Choice’. Whether it’s working from home, in our offices, or a combination of the both, we trust each other to support our clients, colleagues and communities at the right time, in the right way.
