Family Partner – Work up to five days a week from home – Secure caseload – Legal 500 team

Apply now

We’re working with a highly respected national law firm on this exceptional opportunity to join their Legal 500 family law team as a salaried partner.  

Unusually for someone of this seniority within a family law team, you’ll be able to work from home up to five days a week, only attending office as required for the role (practically, this will mean attending office once a fortnight, on average). 

There is additional flexibility here in that, due to the hybrid nature of the role, you’ll be able to choose to base yourself at one of four key offices – Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester or Sheffield.  

The firm is also offering a fantastic bonus scheme, enhanced annual leave with the opportunity to purchase more, a matched pension and access to a rewards gateway providing team members with significant discounts on everything from their weekly food shop to holidays abroad.  

The firm is financially secure with a 200-year heritage behind it, so there would be no concerns surrounding your future here. Likewise, the family department has a busy caseload with lots of work lined up for 2023 and beyond. 

The family team was recently shortlisted for Team of the Year and the firm has also won awards for its approach to employee investment, learning and development. 

You are likely to be an existing partner or Head of Family looking for increased flexibility or a step up into a larger, national firm. You will have experience in managing a team and a willingness to take part in some business development, such as liaising with referral partners.
