Are you looking to improve your quality of life, ditch the commute and embrace an exciting new opportunity?   

A progressive and values-driven law firm in Douglas are looking to take on an ambitious and enthusiastic Criminal Defence Solicitor to join them. 

You’ll join the leading crime team on the island, with an abundance of interesting and exciting criminal work on offer.

This really is an unmissable position for a Criminal Solicitor looking for a more laid-back pace of life and to take the next step up in their career.
