Family Solicitor – Hybrid Working

Apply now

Our client, a national, full-service law firm, is looking for a Family Solicitor to join its successful matrimonial team at their office in Wigan, Greater Manchester.   

The firm has embraced hybrid working and the positive impact it has had on work/life balance for its team members. Therefore, you’ll be able to work flexibly and from home for part of your week, spending the rest of the week at the firm’s office in Wigan. There’s also free parking, making it easily commutable from Manchester, Bolton, Wigan, Chorley, Salford and the surrounding areas. 

In the role, you’ll be providing legal advice on a mixed caseload of family law matters. Including private and legal aid, to the local community in Wigan, Westhoughton, Bolton and surrounds. The firm has recently successfully recruited a team of experienced childcare solicitors, and now want to focus on expanding its private family and legal aid services.  

The firm has a team of eight family lawyers based across the North West and undergone a period of significant growth, so there is a ready caseload for you to get stuck in with. 

You’ll feel welcome here straight away and get the opportunity to build strong relationships with your colleagues – there’s even the option of a team trip to Dublin each year! You’ll also have the opportunity to build connections and network on behalf of the firm if you wish, as the firm attends several charity and sector events and dinners across the year. 

You’ll be supported in gaining Resolution membership and access to the family panel, if you aren’t already a member.  

The role would also be fantastic for someone who prefers plenty of admin and secretarial support on their cases, as the ratio is almost 1:1.  

If you are looking for an exciting role closer to home in Wigan, with plenty of room for growth and progression as part of a larger regional and national team, speak to us today.
