  • High-profile caseload, dealing with high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth clients
  • Laid-back, supportive company culture with a down-to-earth team
  • Hybrid working

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a Family Senior Associate/Partner to join a highly respected and close-knit firm located in the desirable area of Wilmslow. This growing firm is known for managing an impressive caseload, often working with high-net-worth individuals.

You can expect a competitive remuneration package along with the option to work from home for up to one day per week.

In this pivotal role, you’ll handle your own caseload involving high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth work. Contact with your clients will be substantial, giving you the opportunity to build strong and lasting relationships. As part of the management team, your responsibilities would also include mentoring and managing junior colleagues.

You’ll need to bring a great deal of experience to the table, ideally 8+ PQE, particularly in high-net-worth or ultra-high-net-worth finances. Exceptional technical, case handling, business development, client case, and management and mentorship skills are vital. The firm is known for its laid-back, personable, and friendly approach and is looking for someone with a down-to-earth personality.

It prides itself on providing a working environment that is supportive and friendly. Along with a structured career progression framework, benefits include a high-quality workload that would typically be found at larger city centre firms but without the corporate environment.

If you’re looking to advance your career with a firm that truly values a supportive and relaxed company culture, and where you can handle high-quality, interesting work, get in touch with us today!
