Due to continued expansion of the Immigration team, Truth Legal are looking to appoint a solicitor specialising in immigration.
With offices in Leeds and Harrogate, Truth Legal prides itself on being an ethical and affordable law firm with a strong commitment to the care of both clients and staff alike. Founded in 2012, the firm has undergone continued expansion in its personnel and services, including the opening of an Immigration department in 2019.
Due to unprecedented client demand, the Immigration department continues to grow and is again recruiting in multiple roles, including a solicitor.
You will be a practicing solicitor with a specialism and primary interest in immigration law. We welcome applications from NQs to more established solicitors.
Who are we looking for? Someone with a genuine interest in all things immigration, someone motivated by a wish to help others.
Aside from casework, the ideal candidate will be fully engaged with the department head and rest of the team in developing the department and continuing our growth.
As you will be joining a relatively new but ambitious firm and department, both on a strong upward trajectory, there is excellent opportunity for career progression.
We pride ourselves on our numerous blogs and guides which are freely available. We expect you to contribute to this, and as such should be able to write clearly and concisely (or have the potential for such skills to be developed).
You will be expected to manage your own caseload. We have an approximate 50/50 split of personal and business immigration. Ideally, you would be experienced and adept at running cases involving sponsor licence applications/sponsorship, Partner visas, naturalisation applications and EU Settlement Scheme applications.
We are hoping to obtain a legal aid contract, subject to us having capacity. Whilst we would welcome an individual with experience in legal aid, if your sole focus is legal aid work then this might not be the right time to join us (but perhaps later!).
This is an excellent chance to join a close-knit but expanding team, with the opportunity to undertake meaningful work, including some pro-bono or reduced-fee work (and potentially legally aided work in the future). We are committed to promoting a workplace culture of mental health, wellbeing and openness.
This is a full-time and permanent position, based primarily at our Leeds office, although we offer mixed office/home working. We offer a competitive salary and terms.
