Family Solicitor 5+ PQE – Hybrid working – Great career prospects

Apply now

This is an exciting opportunity for an ambitious family solicitor with 5-10 years PQE to join this friendly, full-service firm based in Stoke-on-Trent.  

You’ll have the chance to really make your mark as you utilise your skills and previous experience and work to grow a new family department. You’ll be well supported by other family teams across the wider legal group the firm is a part of and you’ll benefit from assistance from its fantastic marketing team.  

While the firm’s hybrid working model (you’ll be able to work from home for 2 days each week) is certainly appealing, the key pull factor for this role is the progression opportunities you will have. You’ll work very closely with the Managing Partner, giving you a clear step up the career ladder. 

The firm employs 35 team members but is also part of a wider legal group with ambitious expansion plans – so you’ll have the best of both worlds, able to form a close bond with a close-knit group of teammates while benefitting from the progression opportunities that naturally come with being part of a larger outfit.  

This will include access to the learning, training and development opportunities that the group will be offering to all firm employees, such as leadership courses. The firm also has plans to move to new high-spec offices soon.  

The firm also offers free parking, an Employee Assistance Programme with medicash for private healthcare, 25 days of holiday plus bank holidays, pension scheme, an hour-long lunch break. 

So, if you’re looking to move away from a high-pressure environment, but want to utilise the experience you’ve built up within family law, close to home in the Stoke area, speak to us today.
