  • 3+ PQE
  • Top-of-market salary
  • Progression all the way up to Partner
  • Hybrid working
  • Helps set up a brand-new office for an existing law firm

A highly respected regional law firm is looking for a care family solicitor with at least three years’ PQE to join two other solicitors in setting up a brand-new office in West Yorkshire.

You’ll come into an existing caseload of care work with very reasonable targets, and there would be no expectation for you to generate new work.

As such, this is a rare and unique opportunity to progress to Partner level quickly while staying focussed on fee-earning work during a new and exciting time for the firm.

The new office will work as part of a wider regional team consisting of 15 care lawyers and you’ll get plenty of exposure to colleagues. The team has a fantastic reputation for care work across West Yorkshire.

You’ll also be able to work from home for part of your week under the firm’s hybrid working policy.

The firm invests heavily in the development of its team members to enable them to reach their full potential and support their career aspirations.
