Family Legal Assistant

Apply now

We are working with an award-winning specialist family law firm that is looking for a Family Legal Assistant with at least 12 months of experience to join them at their Huddersfield office.  

In this role, you’ll support an experienced solicitor as they manage a caseload of private family law and childcare matters. You’ll have lots of client contact and be expected to draft letters and documents and complete tasks using the firm’s case management system. 
The firm offers its team members something completely different to the rest of the market, as it has followed in the footsteps of businesses like John Lewis to become 100% employee-owned. This means you’ll earn a tax-free profit share on top of your salary and, from Day One, will be able to influence the future of the business.  

This is just one of the ways the firm demonstrates that it really values its team. Employees are also given autonomy and there is a culture of trust and mutual respect, with hybrid working available. There’s a real focus on personal growth at this firm and, as a result, it has a great reputation for retaining staff and promoting from within. 

A firm proud of its Yorkshire roots and values, it has expanded to encompass over 15 offices across the region. Your work will have a significant social impact on the local community, and you’ll feel proud of the difference you are making to the world.  

You’ll start on 23 days of holiday per year, but this will increase to 26 days after just one year’s service and to a market-leading provision of 31 days after just five years.  

The firm also offers discounted bus travel, a Cycle to Work scheme, subsidised gym membership, a health cash plan and, after a years’ service, an interest-free travel loan, free conveyancing and a free will.
