Prior SHE experience would work very well, but not many candidates will have it. Criminal Defence could transpose into this role, certainly if you'd acted for some private clients or handled some work for businesses, directors, or perhaps for an insurer. Good client skills are essential as you'll be supporting clients in difficult circumstances, so being an assured communicator is important. (There won't be any call out work with this firm given the commercial client base, so if you've been attending clients at unsociable hours you'll get your life back!)
A great opportunity to consolidate SHE experience to date, or to move out of general practice and into a commercial law firm with the upskilling and increased remuneration that come hand in hand with that. Feel free to speak to me in confidence for further details, I know the partners well.
Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.
