Employment Contracts

Employment Contracts and Service Agreements

Finding good candidates and recruiting the right person for your organisation can be a challenge. There is a web of legislation and best practice that needs to be factored into the recruitment process which should not be a distraction or a complicated process.

Quick Enquiry


How can we help?

We offer a combination of policies, procedures and training for those involved in recruitment to help reduce the legal risks that may arise around discrimination challenges from an unsuccessful candidate and ensure effective use of diversity monitoring.


Offers of Employment and Safeguarding Obligations

Once an offer of employment is made, it is likely to be conditional on satisfactory completion of a medical questionnaire or attendance at a medical, taking up references and ensuring that the right to work in the UK has been checked and properly evidenced. Depending upon the role and the organisation, there may also be a need to comply with safeguarding obligations and we are experts in complying with safe recruitment obligations.


International Recruitment and Immigration Advice

If you are recruiting for a specialist role, you may need to cast your search further than the UK and comply with ever changing rules to obtain a sponsor licence and then issue an appropriate work visa. We have a team of immigration law specialists that can guide you through the process.


Employment Contracts and Documentation

The relationship between the employer and the employee needs to be carefully documented. We provide a full range of employment documentation suitable for any size of employer and in any sector. We understand that one size doesn’t always fit all and will tailor contracts to your organisation and the level of employee.

Senior employees may also be directors and we are experienced in the corporate governance requirements that accompany such positions and the extent to which service agreements may need to dovetail with Articles of Association, Shareholder Agreements and other corporate documents.


For more information regarding recruitment, employment contracts or service agreements, please contact Gareth Edwards on 0117 314 5220.

The team has wide experience and excellent subject knowledge and is at the forefront of employment law practice for charities and independent schools.
