We protect and support the professional interests of more than 300,000 members around the world. Membership provides access to expert advice and support together with the right to request indemnity for any complaints or claims arising from professional practice.

Our in-house experts assist with the wide range of legal and ethical problems that arise from professional practice. This can include clinical negligence claims, complaints, medical and dental council inquiries, legal and ethical dilemmas, disciplinary procedures, inquests and fatal accident inquiries.

As a result of growing our in-house legal function, we are recruiting for Legal Advisers to join MPS at our offices in Leeds on a permanent basis.

As a Legal Adviser you will provide legal advice and support to our members on cases, primarily in relation to Healthcare Regulatory and Inquest cases. From time to time you will also provide general legal advice, as well as supporting and mentoring junior colleagues within the department.

Excellent oral, written and interpersonal skills are a necessity, as well an analytical approach to problem solving. You must be able to work autonomously and to tight deadlines.

In return, we offer a great working environment in conveniently located offices in the City Centre. We offer an exceptional benefits package, including a 12% pension scheme, 25 days paid holiday (in addition to public holidays), private medical insurance and a health care cash plan, car allowance, childcare vouchers and an annual bonus scheme.
