If you’re an Employment Lawyer looking for a better way of working, we have opportunities for you!
The best employment lawyers do their greatest work when they have the proper support behind them. That’s why we have created a better way of working, to give you the flexibility you need and the rewards you deserve to live a more fulfilling life as a lawyer.
Many lawyers quickly become frustrated about the downsides that come with working at a more traditional firm. These include long commutes, office politics, unreasonable targets, management responsibility, and more. With our employment lawyer jobs, you can leave all of this behind and work when, where, and how you want, all whilst our expert teams work behind the scenes to support you.

What our consultants say
Frequently asked questions
We have recently invested in a new system to make the delivery of leads to our consultants even smoother, giving them greater flexibility and control over the process.
Yes, as a consultant you do not have to work exclusively with us. The majority of our consultant lawyers don’t choose to take on multiple roles, but we understand that you may wish to and do not restrict your ability to do so.
Setfords consultants are also free to set up their own office locations, and we have a number of these locations across the country.
Absolutely! One of the biggest perks of being a consultant solicitor is the fact that you can set your own schedule. Whether you want to make the most of your early mornings, take meetings on weekends to fit your client’s schedule, or stick to the traditional 9-5, as a consultant solicitor it’s totally up to you.
Most of our consultants choose to work primarily from home, but it all depends on what’s best for you and your clients. Whatever you choose, you won’t have to relocate, and we welcome consultants who are based all over England, Wales, and beyond.
It’s highly likely that one of the other 450+ solicitors will be able to cover you during this time. We encourage networking with your fellow consultant solicitors, and the staff at Head Office can help you find people to cover you too. Failing that, you can bring in locum cover, but this is almost never necessary!
