  • The opportunity to join a growing national Legal 500 family team in its strongest phase yet
  • Top-of-the-market pay
  • Three days from home
  • Part-time available for the right person

Our client, a national law firm with a fantastic reputation for family law, is recruiting for a Private Family Solicitor with at least ten years’ experience to join its team in Newcastle.

This is a fantastic position for an existing partner looking to make their mark at a national firm or a great promotion opportunity for a Senior Associate looking to take a step up into a Partner role.

You’ll have the trust and flexibility to work from home for three days per week, and enjoy an attractive bonus scheme, enhanced pension, life assurance, a holiday purchase scheme, subsidised city centre parking and days to complete charity work.

The firm’s business outlook is incredibly strong; following a strong couple of years, it’s now set for its next phase of growth. The family team is in its strongest phase yet, having recently attracted two highly respected and award-winning senior lawyers from national competitors, so it’s a really exciting time to join.

Working alongside some of the best family lawyers in the UK market, you’ll build up a full caseload of mixed private family law matters, including divorce, finance and private children work. You’ll also have the opportunity to do your own advocacy and mentor junior colleagues within the team.

The firm has bustling offices located in the three major legal hubs of Newcastle, Manchester and Leeds. It is accredited with Investors in People Gold status, which puts it amongst the top-ranking employers in the UK.
