Law career in need of a change scene? We’re recruiting!

12th July 2013

As one of the UK’s leading medical negligence and serious injury firms, we’ve seen a 15% increase in claims against medical professionals and healthcare bodies this year alone. We believe that number will continue to rise, as cuts to NHS funding further impact upon front-line services.

Our recent online debate put the question to the public, “Is it ethical to sue the NHS?” Recent scandals like the atrocities uncovered at Mid Staffordshire have brought widespread negligence into the public domain, and in a culture where mistakes are actively concealed more patients are sadly at risk of harm. By growing our team we aim to combat a shocking trend.

Solicitors with at least four years medical litigation experience are encouraged to consider the move to Southport’s sunny shores and the vibrant work environment Fletchers offers. With a focus on career progression and healthy work-life balance, as well as company benefits such as flexi-time, we are a progressive firm with the capacity and drive to truly value our staff. Testament to this is our Investors in People Gold Award, which recognises excellence in developing and supporting staff.

Incentive schemes, training opportunities and an ardent reputation make Fletchers an ideal firm to advance a serious legal career. Paired with more practical company benefits like childcare assistance and discounted gym membership, we actively encourage our employees to share in the community and make a difference with their time both in and out of the office.

Long regarded a quintessential British holiday destination, Southport makes a welcome change from the urban grind and stresses of inner-city living. A cosmopolitan bar and restaurant scene means city dwellers can satisfy their social side at a fraction of the cost of larger cities. With affordable housing and the appeal of natural spaces like Formby Beach, overlooking the Irish Sea, none of Fletchers’ out-of-town recruits misses their commute!

Fletchers Solicitors is recognised for handling a significant proportion of the UK’s medical negligence claims, but also advocates a personal approach to clients. Compassion and understanding are at the heart of the Fletchers offering, qualities firmly reflected in the management and care of our staff.
