About The Role

We have a brilliant opportunity to join DAS UK Group as an Associate in our Employment Team, in either our central Bristol or Bedwas office.

Who we are:

The Employment Team is made up of around 30 solicitors, paralegals and legal assistants. We are a dedicated and hard-working team and we work in a friendly environment with regular monthly social outings. We offer exceptional levels of responsibility and pride ourselves on our levels of supervision and internal career progression, including a detailed careers pathways programme. We have a strong values culture, which means you will be closely supported and mentored by your colleagues, learning to provide consistent and outstanding service to your clients

What do we do?

The Employment Team deals with all aspects of employment law including litigation and advisory work for both employees and employers. The type of work the team deals with on a day-to-day basis includes advising on unfair dismissal claims, discrimination and whistle blowing. The work is very varied and no one case is the same as another.

As well as acting for employees and employers during the litigation process we also provide advisory HR services, such as advising on employee handbooks and the drafting of employment contracts to support and guide businesses through the complexity of employment law requirements. The team also deals with its own advocacy

We encourage early responsibility with a real emphasis on creating opportunities to promote our lawyers from within the team. This means you will gain real “hands on” experience across a broad range of claims and defences and will become an expert on employment law and negotiation and settlement tactics.

About You

We would like to hear from candidates with employment litigation experience who can demonstrate the following knowledge and experience:

  • Excellent working knowledge of employment law and procedure;
  • The ability to run a caseload; and
  • Excellent client care skills.

We believe in recruiting the best to work for us which is why we will commit to offering you generous remuneration and an attractive benefits package which will include:

  • 25 days holiday with the option to buy up to a further 5 days
  • Company pension scheme with the option to increase contributions
  • Group Income Protection for all employees
  • Group Legal Protection for all employees
  • A choice of either European Motor Assistance or Home Emergency Assistance
  • Salary sacrifice benefits including Cycle scheme 
  • A comprehensive wellbeing programme including free eye tests
  • Access to our employee discounts hub offering exclusive discounts across thousands of retail partners, including discounted gym memberships at over 3,000 gyms across the UK
  • The option to join our Sports and Social club which organises discounted events such as theatre visits, wine tasting and shopping trips

If you think you would be a good match for this role and can demonstrate some transferable experience please apply, regardless of whether you meet all the criteria listed above.

About The Company

DAS UK Group has been helping businesses and individuals get access to justice for over 40 years. Our businesses include a legal expenses insurance company and a law firm.

We have historically focussed on delivering legal services to customers solely via our Legal Expenses Insurance products, which provides a steady workload of litigated cases in areas such as;

  • Personal Injury
  • Litigation & Dispute Management
  • Employment
  • Business & Commercial

We believe these are exciting times for DAS Law as part of the wider DAS UK Group and we are looking for likeminded individuals who share our ambition to make our high quality legal solutions accessible and affordable. ‘Doing the right thing’ is central to our behaviour – from building  trust, being accountable, creating good customer outcomes is at the heart of everything that we do which we believe drives performance.

You can expect to join an organisation that will challenge and develop you to progress your career in ways that traditional law firms cannot. We are also committed to supporting continued professional development and promote both internal Training Contracts and alternative routes to qualification (CILEX).

By giving you every opportunity to develop yourself professionally and personally, we also pride ourselves on having an open, inclusive and high energy culture that encourages a fun working environment and places our customers at the very heart of everything we do.

If you are keen to become part of our exciting future then we would love to hear from you. In addition to the very genuine development opportunities we provide we also offer a generous reward and benefits package.
