  • Fast-track progression – move up to Partner quickly 
  • Hybrid working 
  • Manageable targets and 1:1 support 

A reputable full-service law firm based in North Manchester is recruiting for a family lawyer with at least four years’ experience to join its matrimonial team.  

If you’re looking for something closer to home but still with lots of progression, this could be the role for you – the firm is sizeable but has only five partners, so there isn’t a ceiling on how far you could go.   

You’ll enjoy extremely manageable targets and a fantastic work/life balance, working two days per week from home.  

The opportunity comes with a host of fantastic benefits, enhanced annual leave (increasing further with service) and free parking. You’ll also receive a performance bonus on top of your salary. 

You’ll also have plenty of secretarial and admin support on your files, as the firm has a support-to-fee earner ratio close to 1:1.  

You’ll advance your career quickly, as you’ll be learning from a highly experienced and Legal 500 recommended family partner, who also has Law Society Children accreditation.  

In the role, you’ll be providing legal advice on a variety of private and legal aid childcare matters, making a real difference to the lives of those families you work with. 

The firm has ten busy offices across the North West and has recently undertaken an exciting rebrand to herald its next phase of growth.  

This role is easily commutable from Bury, Bolton, Prestwich, Whitefield, Rochdale, Ramsbottom and surrounds.
