Family Solicitor 2+ PQE – Office or remote – Focus on outcomes, not hours – Bonus scheme

Apply now

We are delighted to bring to market this incredibly rare opportunity for a family lawyer with at least two years’ experience to join this successful, family-friendly, multi-service firm based in Cheshire, where you’ll be able to combine working from the office, home or any other location as preferred.

In addition, the firm’s innovative high trust, high choice model that focusses on outcomes not hours, provides the utmost flexibility for those wanting to improve their work/life balance significantly while still being paid a 9-5 salary. Provided objectives are met, there is option to adjust your working hours to suit your lifestyle and even take additional annual leave.

For those who would prefer to manage their time in pursuit of higher remuneration, there is the opportunity to increase their pay considerably. You’ll be able to earn a generous percentage of profit costs recovered over your target, paid quarterly.

So, as you can see, this position offers you the rare chance to put together your own unique benefits package, balancing salary, annual leave and flexible working as you see fit.

Due to the fantastic flexibility and trust on offer in this role, the right candidate will be capable of managing a caseload and working to (a very reasonable) target. With such a high level of independence over working hours, you would manage your caseload and administration individually, which gives you total personal control over your target achievement.

This busy team has plenty of work and a successful marketing strategy, through which fee earners are supported to engage in business development to generate a superb variety of cases to get their teeth stuck into and gain valuable experience.

You’ll learn from a senior family solicitor, who is also an expert in the field, and build your personal brand presence in the family law market with the help of an in-house marketing specialist.

The firm has a clear growth strategy for its family team, mirroring that put in place for the firm’s property team, which has grown fourfold in the past two years.  This means that, as you gain experience, you will eventually be able to grow a team around you, having been involved in all aspects of the development of the department.

This role will appeal to a variety of candidates, including those with caregiving responsibilities, those living in more remote locations and those looking to have more autonomy over their take-home pay, so please register your interest as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
