We pride ourselves on providing high quality advice to clients who are at the top of their field. However, perhaps more importantly, we are all committed to treating clients fairly, acting with integrity and adding real value. To achieve this, we need lawyers and other colleagues who are not only technically excellent but also personable and emotionally intelligent.
BDBF is a dynamic business, with a collegiate atmosphere. We all stem from different backgrounds, but share the same goals: to make BDBF a great place to work and to make a real difference for our clients.
Employees at all levels are encouraged to share knowledge and ideas. We believe that every person who works at BDBF should feel as committed to the success of the firm and our values as the founders. To ensure that we are all aligned, everyone who works in the firm is entitled to their own allocation of the firm’s profits and participates in the firm’s decision making.
If the above appeals to you, please take a look at our current vacancies (below).
2 x Solicitors
BDBF is growing and we are seeking to add two more lawyers to our team. We are interested in people with between 2 – 7 PQE; ideally we are looking for one lawyer at the junior end of that scale, and one towards the more senior level. Top academics and experience at a leading or well known employment practice are essential.
Successful candidates will need to have an outgoing nature and be adept at handling high-value contentious work, predominantly for individuals but also for employer clients. Some Claimant experience is preferred and a desire to do a sizeable amount of Claimant work is a must. You will have a commercial approach, but also an ability to empathise with clients in difficult situations.
You must be willing to play your part in growing the business, contribute ideas for growth and business development, be articulate, self-starting, personable, and social media savvy.
To apply for either role, please send your CV and cover letter by email to Emma Sell, or by using the form on the right.
