Family NQ-1 PQE Solicitor – Opportunity to work up to five days from home – No targets – HNW work

Apply now

We are excited to bring to the market this incredibly rare opportunity for a junior family lawyer or newly-qualified lawyer looking to join a family law team to gain experience in handling high-net-worth (HNW) cases while working from home up to five days a week, with no chargeable hours targets.  

Our client is a successful, multi-service firm with four offices across Yorkshire. You will advise on a mixed caseload of private children and divorce and finance cases (including complex cases), enabling you to build out your experience and skill set at this early stage of your career.  

In doing so, you’ll be able to ascertain whether you would like to specialise in a particular area of family law, or keep things varied and become a general practitioner.  

If you wish, you can work from home for the entirety of your week, only attending office on the occasions a client would like to meet with them in person. (For this reason, we are not advertising this role as ‘fully remote’, but you will work from home all week, most weeks).  

There is additional flexibility with this role, in that you can be based at any of the firm’s four offices, which are all situated between Leeds and Harrogate. 

If you thought this role couldn’t get any better, you’ll also benefit from zero chargeable hours targets, meaning you can fully concentrate on building up your experience and knowledge of the law. You will work collaboratively with the other members of your close-knit team to provide the best possible service to clients.
