Job Description


Our client is a well known and highly successful legal information services company.


An interesting and rare opportunity of a 12 month FTC maternity cover role has arisen for an Employment Editor to join a collegial team.

The role will involve writing content for online publication, maintaining existing content and answering questions from customers and ensuring all content is of the quality and scope that meets business objectives and customer needs.

The role will also include researching, writing, commissioning and delivering well-written, up-to-date content for online publication that reflects current market legal practice.

You will also be keeping up-to-date with all relevant law, practice and market developments so that all content for which you are responsible reflects and takes account of current practice and up-to-date law and market trends.

In addition you will develop relationships with third parties with a view to obtaining contributions of content or improving content through third party insights into law or practice and attend training events, conferences and talks and otherwise networking with customers and potential customers and with industry leaders.


An employment lawyer with 5pqe or more you will have substantial experience of advising employers and employees on the full range of contentious and non-contentious employment matters.

You will also have significant and substantial post qualification experience in employment law practice and excellent writing and communication skills.

Your experience should ideally include producing well-written practical legal content efficiently of a nature that will be relevant for publication and/or teaching and the use of technology to create and disseminate online content.

While previous experience working in a Legal/Publishing environment would be useful it is by no means essential.

The team will consider employment lawyers who are currently working in professional support or as fee earners with experience gained at a City, central London or regional law firm.

In return the firm offers an exciting opportunity to work in a collegial, lively and friendly team where agile working is also on offer, for a start date of September / October 2018.

Lipson Lloyd Jones Ltd is acting as an Employment Business in relation to this vacancy. Please note our advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the minimum level of experience required. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfill this kind of work.
