We are looking for a law assistant who has a keen interest in Employment Law. You will be employed as a law assistant on a part-time basis, for 15 hours per week, for a period of at least six months.
Our Employment & Employee Benefits practice, which is leading in the Netherlands, covers employment law in the widest sense of the word. It handles the most interesting and complex employment, co-determination and pension law litigation, while at the same time working closely with our Corporate / M&A practice in national and international transactions.
We advise and represent companies in respect of individual dismissals (particularly at the executive level), collective dismissals and reorganisations, national and European co-determination (Works Councils Act and European Works Council Act), Collective Labour Agreements, flexible and temporary employment relationships, pension law, equal treatment and industrial action (strikes).
A strong focus of our employment litigation practice also lies on Supreme Court proceedings. At the same time, we advise on employment law aspects of mergers, acquisitions, joint ventures and outsourcings. In short: we give you the opportunity to work on the cases that really make the difference in the employment field, instead of just reading about them.
What you can expect as a law assistant
Your activities as a law assistant consist of a combination of ‘know-how’ related work and assisting lawyers in the group’s daily practice (including literature and case law research, the preparation of presentations, memo’s and research for internal and external publications).
As a law assistant, you will be able to participate fully in all of our educational and social programs (both those which are practice specific, and those arranged for the whole firm). You will also participate in our Introduction Day, and have the opportunity to meet other colleagues starting at the same time, in different roles across the firm. Ideally you will share a room with one of our lawyers, and may be able to accompany them to any court hearings and client meetings.
However, to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of all of our employees (and to comply with national restrictions on working practice during the pandemic), remote working or a hybrid arrangement may be necessary. We use the latest tools and applications to connect, collaborate and work together and would ask for your flexibility and tenacity to embrace whatever the current remote or hybrid working arrangements may be at the time that you start.
If you are:
- a Master’s student with a strong academic record;
- eager and excited to learn;
- meticulous and well-organised;
- proactive and flexible;
- interested in employment law;
- a great team-player;
- enthusiastic and driven; and
- you have excellent Dutch and English language skills,
then we very much look forward to hearing from you.
