THE ROLE :
As a family solicitor you will be joining a busy family team and will be given full autonomy over your own caseload of both publicly and privately funded family work.
You can expect to be working on divorce, ancillary relief, pre-nuptial agreements, co-habitation and civil partnership separations.
Your legal aid caseload will consist predominantly of care proceedings with plenty of opportunity to undertake your own advocacy.
There is the scope for the appointed family solicitor to progress to a director position before too long. This role can also be taken on a part time basis.
THE CANDIDATE :
I am looking to speak with experienced family solicitors or legal executives who are eligible for legal aid supervisor status (ie.
members of Resolution or the Children or Family Panel). Candidates must have a demonstrable drive to go the extra mile to ensure their clients’ issues are resolved as smoothly and effectively as possible.
The communication and sympathetic abilities that the nature of this work calls for are also a must.
THE FIRM :
This Lexcel accredited inter-disciplinary firm serves a client base consisting of businesses and individuals from across the North-
East and beyond. Their employees pride themselves on offering a legal service that is not only on the highest possible quality, but is also friendly, straight talking and entirely tailored to clients’ individual needs.
They seek to employ likeminded and hardworking individuals and offer them a friendly and supportive working environment where they are given all the space and resources required to thrive.
SALARY & BENEFITS :
This role comes with an excellent renumeration package as well as the prospect to progress to a director position before too long.
