  • Hybrid working (three days from home)
  • Move into a leadership role alongside fee-earning
  • Well-established regional law firm with fantastic employee retention
  • Be supported in your career development (all partners originally joined as paralegals)

A well-established regional law firm with excellent staff retention is looking for a family solicitor with at least 5 years PQE to join them in Coventry.

In this role you’ll enjoy a fantastic work-life balance; you’ll be able to split your time between working from home and the office and you’ll also benefit from flexible working hours if you wish.

If progression is important to you, you will also have the opportunity to progress to a leadership position within the firm’s close-knit team.

The ideal candidate will be well-versed in family law able to step in and, from the get-go, handle a mixed caseload of private matrimonial matters. You’ll be expected to do your advocacy and while there would be no expectation for you to generate new work, our client would welcome someone who enjoys getting involved in business development.

The firm invests heavily in the development of its team members. All of its partners originally joined as paralegals, demonstrating the firm’s commitment to enabling its lawyers to reach their full potential and support their career aspirations. Get in touch today to learn more.
