JOB TITLE: Regulatory Barrister
PQE REQUIRED: 4+
SALARY: Excellent + Benefits
This is an exceptional opportunity to join a talented Regulatory team who act for many regulatory bodies involved in the field of professional discipline, primarily in the health sector but, increasingly, more widely. The work largely involves presenting cases but also requires managing an investigatory caseload where it is alleged that the registrant's fitness to practise is impaired through misconduct, competence or health issues and preparing those cases for hearings before panels and committees of the relevant regulators. This firm has seen an increase in the amounts of advocacy they are having to carry out, which typically involves interim and substantive hearings and to meet this need they are now keen to recruit an additional barrister. This includes straightforward hearings as well as more complex cases such as sexual misconduct, dishonesty allegations/ fraud and serious instances of deficient professional performance. Hearings are usually contested and in the majority of cases the registrants are represented, most often by counsel. It is likely that there will also be opportunities to appear in the High Court and the First Tier Tribunal on appeals from decisions of the regulators.
As the successful candidate you will ideally have a minimum of 4 years PQE experience hand regulatory matters and posses demonstrable experience in handling your own advocacy. You will be a driven individual who is self-motivated and commercially minded, as well as having good interpersonal skills and being able to work effectively in teams. This is a great opportunity to join a friendly, dynamic and expanding team in a market leading firm with the opportunity to influence and shape the ways the dispute advocacy service evolves moving forwards.
A leading practice with an outstanding reputation within this field, this firm offers the opportunity for you to learn and develop your skills and the chance to progress your career.
