An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Family Solicitor to join a well-respected, family-run business based in Liverpool. This firm is passionate about maintaining a balanced work-life environment and is open to flexibility with work arrangements, allowing employees to work from home at least one day a week.

The firm is dedicated to providing clear and transparent progression pathways, with a structured banding framework in place to guide career development.

As a Family Solicitor, you will be tasked with handling a mixed caseload of both public and private children cases, including non-molestation orders. You would work closely with the crime and family departments, potentially taking on supervisory and managerial responsibilities. However, if your preference is to focus on fee-earning, this can also be accommodated.

Ideal candidates will have a legal aid family background, preferably from a legal aid firm, as the company does not currently deal with private divorce or finance.

Candidates are expected to be hardworking, personable and commercially minded due to the firm’s growth plans.

This is your chance to join a dynamic team in a thrilling period of growth and change. You will contribute to the team’s success while developing your professional skills and experiencing rewarding work-life balance.

If you’re looking to advance your career in a supportive and dynamic environment, we welcome your application.
