Family Solicitor – No targets – Great prospects – ILEX welcome

Apply now

Our client, a well-regarded law practice based in Widnes, Cheshire, is looking for a Family Solicitor with up to four years’ PQE to join its growing matrimonial team.

The firm welcomes applications from solicitors and qualified legal executives alike.

The role comes with great prospects, as the firm is currently looking at a future succession strategy for the team.

You’ll work to a team target, rather than an individual billing target, which will support a great work/life balance and your wellbeing. There’s also a real family-feel culture at this firm, with plenty of socials and charity events to get involved with.

In the role, you’ll handle a mixed caseload of family law matters, including divorce, finances, private children, care and legal aid, to the local community in Widnes and surrounds.

The role comes with an enhanced holiday allowance of 25 days plus bank holidays and Christmas shutdown (with no need to reserve holidays). There’s also free parking, making it easily commutable from Liverpool, Runcorn, Warrington, Northwich, Ellesmere Port, St Helens and the surrounding areas.

If you’re looking for a family solicitor position with a firm closer to home in Widnes with a great reputation in the community, get in touch today.
