  • 5+ PQE
  • Help build the new Manchester arm of an established family team
  • Unrivalled progression all the way up to equity partner
  • Work from home three days per week
  • The chance to work internationally, if you wish to
  • Exclusively private HNW caseload

We are pleased to bring to market this unmissable Private Family Senior Solicitor role – an exciting opportunity to join a brand-new Manchester family team at an international law firm.

You’ll be second-in-command to a high-profile Legal 500 ranked partner, advising on a top-quality HNW private caseload and building out the profile of the team.

This role not only provides the opportunity and autonomy to help build something of your own, but ultimately a trajectory to equity partner – which is increasingly rare in the legal market. You may currently be practicing at Solicitor or Associate level, so this role would represent an immediate promotion and step up.

The firm has established, successful family teams in other cities, so you’ll have the support of a wider pool of colleagues and referrer network.

The role comes with bags of flexibility, and you’ll be able to work from home for up to three days per week. You’ll also be able to top-up your highly competitive salary with a bonus of up to 15%.

If you wish to, there will be opportunities to travel internationally. Plus, you’ll enjoy a very attractive package of benefits including at least 25 days annual leave, two weeks of free childcare and private healthcare.

This role is perfect for someone looking for a new challenge, an exciting caseload and a clear progression pathway all the way up to equity partner. Get in touch with us to learn more.
