  • 2-5 PQE 
  • Exceptional homeworking policy – work from home four days per week 
  • Clear progression route to associate, senior associate and director 
  • Very achievable billing targets 
  • High quality private work 

A down-to-earth regional firm is looking to bring a Family Solicitor with 2-5 PQE into its high-performing team in York.  

The opportunity comes with a generous homeworking policy of four days per week, which will help you achieve a fantastic work/life balance and the chance to avoid a long commute. This makes this role easily commutable from York, Harrogate, Leeds, Sheffield, Hull and the surrounding areas. 

The role comes with a transparent progression route all the way up to director level and the firm has a proven track record of promoting from within.  

You’ll manage a caseload of entirely private cases, so this would suit a solicitor with an existing caseload of private matters or someone with private family experience looking to drop legal aid work. 

You’ll join a team consisting of three partners, a solicitor, a legal executive, four paralegals/trainees and two legal secretaries, so you’ll get lots of support.   

The management team at this growing firm is highly experienced yet down-to-earth, and there is a real feeling of care and interest in the success and happiness of its team members. For those looking for genuine progression, interesting work and a human culture, there aren’t many better places to continue to develop a successful career in family law.
