Due to a combination of growth in work and Judicial Appointments, Chambers is looking to recruit practitioners in all levels, from third six to established practitioners, across all our practice areas.
We also welcome applications from solicitors who are looking to make a move to the Bar, with a number of our members having already been supported in transferring to a successful career with Chambers.
We understand that relocating to a new set or transferring to the bar can be a daunting prospect. KCH Garden Square provides support to new members practically and financially to help make the transition to a successful career with us as easy as possible.
KCH Garden Square offers a competitive rent structure which has been formulated to ensure it is a fair system for all tenants, regardless of their working pattern, seniority or level of income.
The structure features a low monthly fixed sum and a percentage charged on receipts. As such, tenants only pay a commission on what they receive and are not subject to any compulsory large monthly charges.
Our two teams – Criminal and Civil & Family – recruit separately, with no requirement to work across these teams or disciplines. Although the Civil & Family team are joined, if you are a civil practitioner or a family practitioner there is no requirement to do both disciplines, unless this is something that you wish to continue with and/or develop.
Should you discuss how we can help you develop your practice, or to make an application, please contact either of our team Practice Directors:
If you are a Criminal Practitioner please contact Criminal Practice Director Anthony Krogulec by email or directly on 0115 853 2308.
If you are a Civil or Family Practitioner please contact Civil & Family Practice Director Stuart Walker by email or directly on 0115 853 2312.
All enquiries and applications are handled with the strictest of confidence.
We have two exciting opportunities join the team at KCH Garden Square!
We are currently recruiting a Practice Assistant to be based at Nottingham and a 12-month fixed term contract (maternity cover) Practice Assistant to be based at Leicester. Each position attracts a salary of £22,000 per annum.
Although previous administrative experience for each role is is desirable, it is not an essential requirement. These support roles will suit individuals who are looking for a junior administrative role.
Duties for each role will include organising & entering incoming correspondence onto Chambers systems, assisting with the monitoring and distribution of incoming emails and working with the other team members to ensure Chambers continues to provide a high standard of service to our Barristers and clients.
Suitable candidates must show initiative and willingness to work in a pressured environment. They must be reliable, personable and have good communication skills with an organised approach to the working environment.
Once probationary periods have been completed, KCH Garden Square does offer employees the opportunity to work from home on occasion, where the business requirements and roles can accommodate.
To apply for either position, please send a CV and cover letter to Anthony Krogulec by email or by post to 1 Oxford Street, Nottingham, NG1 5BH.
KCH Garden Square has a panel of expert legal academics who assist our members and pupils with research and training in complex and developing areas of law.
Academics on the Panel are a research resource and offer CPD training sessions for the benefit of both our members and clients.
Some members of the Academic Panel are also available for direct instruction, to provide opinions and/or training on the law. They are able to engage in a work share arrangement with counsel in suitable cases, where expert academic opinion is beneficial to the client.
The Academic Panel is led by Mr Oliver Nunn who, alongside his Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners recognised practice as counsel, is an Honorary Associate Professor at the University of Leicester and sits as a Deputy District Judge.
If you are interested in making an application to join our Academic Panel, please see our Academic Panel Policy and Application Form. You are also welcome to contact Mr Nunn by email here who can assist with any queries.
