Childcare Solicitor 4+ PQE

Apply now

Our client, an award-winning, multi-site firm, is looking for a Childcare Solicitor with at least four years’ experience to join their down-to-earth team in Blackburn, Greater Manchester.  

In exchange, the firm is offering a salary above market rate and the opportunity to work from home three days per week. For this reason, the role is commutable from most of Greater Manchester.  

They are also willing to bring someone with the requisite experience in at Associate or even Senior Associate level, so this could be a great step up for you in your career.  

You will also benefit from a structured salary framework, attractive bonus structure, healthcare plan, your birthday off and free or subsidised car parking.  

In the role, you’ll handle a mixed caseload of public family matters. The ideal candidate would be working in a similar role currently, but it’s fine if you handle a mix of public and private matters right now. Childcare panel accreditation is desirable, but not essential, and your starting salary potential will increase if you are on the panel. 

The firm has recently acquired a firm specialising in this area, so there is an existing caseload of work and lots of inbound cases, making this a secure move for you.  

Current team members describe it as “a forward-thinking, modern firm” and “the best place they have ever worked”, with a “supportive management team.”  

The interview process for this role is straightforward, with only one stage, and can be done over Zoom if required.
