Temple Garden Chambers – Fixed Term Tenancies

Posted June 28th, 2019 by sally

An opportunity has arisen for two barristers (newly qualified or in their early years) to develop their practice and gain court experience on a 12 month fixed term tenancy within our thriving set. Chambers has a growing need to service predominantly RTA / Credit Hire and lower value Personal Injury work at the junior end.

Successful applicants could start as soon as they are available, but Chambers is willing to wait until Autumn 2019 for the right applicant.

What to expect

Fixed Term Tenants can expect to have their own case load and be instructed in a range of cases such as Stage 3, Small Claims, and Infant Approval hearings.

As a Fixed Term Tenant, you will be self-employed. You will not be a Member of Chambers, but you will be provided with accommodation in Chambers and have readily available support from a Qualified Person throughout the fixed term. You will have access to Chambers’ social events, lectures and seminars, and will have regular review meetings with your allocated Qualified Person.

What we are looking for

We are looking for barristers with intellectual ability, influencing and advocacy skills, and who are highly motivated and determined to succeed in practice. All applicants must have successfully completed pupillage. Due to the quality and standard expected by Chambers, applicants will normally be expected to have a minimum of a 2:1 degree.

How to apply

Applications should be made by completing the application form which can be found at www.tgchambers.com/join-us.

Applications will be screened in a paper sift initially. Successful candidates will then be invited to interview and an assessment.

Applications should be emailed to ftt@tgchambers.com by 4 pm 26 July 2019.

Reasonable Adjustments in the selection process will be considered and can be arranged by contacting Gaye Spencer-King, Chambers Administrator: gking@tgchambers.com, or 020 7583 1315
