Liverpool law firm High Street Solicitors is creating 80 new jobs after moving to a new headquarters in the city centre.
High Street Solicitors (HSS) has moved its current 75-strong team just a few yards from the Cotton Exchange in Old Hall Street to a 14,875 sq ft office space at 1 Tithebarn, on the corner of Tithebarn Street and Old Hall Street.
Now HSS is to grow its headcount to 155 by creating 80 new roles. On Thursday, March 10, it will be holding a recruitment event at PINS Social Club in Duke Street in Liverpool city centre from 5.30pm to 7.30pm.
The firm specialises in data breach, employers liability, housing disrepair, Japanese knotweed, medical negligence, mis-sold investments, mis-sold pensions and public liability cases.
At its new HQ it has created a dedicated team-building area, as well as a training room for new staff and a newly-renovated large kitchen and dining area. In the summer months, a private garden will be revealed in a large courtyard within the building with astroturf, barbecues and team celebrations planned.
New job roles on offer range from front of house staff right through to solicitors and heads of department. At the recruitment evening heads of department will be available for informal chats around the job roles and the culture of the firm. Bowling, drinks and food will be provided for those attending.
Frank Gibbons, senior practice manager, at HSS, said: “This is an exciting time to join an ever expanding firm that’s utilising the latest in technology and expanding into various new areas of litigation.
“High Street Solicitors aims to be one of the market leaders across the country with our innovative ideas, whilst also keeping the integrity of the English legal system as our priority. We are looking for the best talent within the legal sector to join us and help us achieve our goals and the high standards that our clients’ expect.
