Childcare Solicitor Advocate – Manchester 

A top 50 law firm is looking for a Childcare Solicitor Advocate with up to 10 years PQE to join their Legal 500 and Chambers recognised team in Manchester. 

In this role, you will provide In-House Advocacy Service to the team in respect of Child Care cases, providing advice and representation to clients, conducting legal proceedings before the courts and tribunals, including advocacy. 

This top 50 national firm has its sights firmly set on growth and reaching the top 30. Along with these ambitions, it remains determined to retain the down-to-earth culture it has managed to continue to cultivate over its rich 200-year history.   

While it can be hard to differentiate between the firms at the top, this heavyweight provides its team with an unbeatable combination of upper market pay, lots of progression opportunities and an impressive level of flexibility, while keeping a relaxed and friendly environment.  

Equality and diversity are super important to this firm – and this isn’t something they just say to tick a box, they actually live and breathe it. They recognise that not everyone will take a traditional route into law and provide lots of help and support for those doing CILEX or taking a non-qualified fee earner role to get qualified and move up the ladder. Nobody is treated differently in this respect.  

They have just been awarded Top Employers Institute certification for the fifteenth year, with independent judges reporting that they provide "exceptional employee conditions” while “nurtur[ing] and develop[ing] talent throughout all levels of the organisation."  

Their awards cabinet must be truly bursting at the seams, as they are regular winners at regional and national events. Notable trophies they have won recently include those for ‘Best People Initiative’ and as an “Innovation Trailblazer”.  

Many of the candidates we place here tell us they might have felt intimidated to apply to this firm directly themselves, but as we have a close relationship with the firm, be assured we can represent your unique skills and experience in the best way. Speak to us today.
