A highly respected, full-service firm in East Manchester is looking for a Care Solicitor with at least four years’ experience to join its market leading team.  

The role comes with the ability to work from home for three days per week, working as part of a Legal 500 specialist team alongside other very experienced care solicitors. The team here is one of the biggest care teams in Manchester, so it’s a great place to continue a successful career in childcare law.  

Realm has been the recruitment partner for this regional firm for several years and – hand on heart – they are an absolute dream to work with. They are extremely proactive in remaining competitive with compensation and bonus schemes, benefits, and flexibility/remote-working. As a result, this firm has a very happy team and an incredibly high employee retention rate.   

The many lawyers we have placed here enjoy their work, benefitting from a genuinely lovely team, fantastic benefits package and manageable caseload, leaving plenty of room for an excellent work/life balance. The team even benefits from all-expenses-paid weekends away – which should demonstrate the intense focus this firm puts on engagement and job satisfaction. The professionals we place here always comment on how comfortable and welcome they feel from day one.   

Their offices are also easily commutable from North, East, South and Central Manchester with great transport links, including quick access to the M60.   

They are the go-to firm for the regional business and private client community and generate most of their work via word-of-mouth referrals, so lawyers here enjoy a sustainable and varied stream of cases to get their teeth into, enabling them to broaden their experience and commercial skills.     

The firm has a clear progression framework and regularly review team salaries and promotability. Plus, it is on an impressive growth track and has added to each of its teams in the past 12 months, so team members feel positive and part of something successful.
