Family Solicitor NQ-3 PQE – Employee-owned – Tax-free profit share – Hybrid working

Apply now

This is an exciting opportunity for a family solicitor with 3+ years’ experience to join a successful and growing family law team at an award-winning firm.
You can be based at either the firm’s Wakefield, Castleford or Pontefract offices, but will also be able to work from home for part of your week.
In the role, you’ll manage an interesting variety of family law matters, including private cases and legal aid work, so experience of dealing with both types of work is desirable.
The firm offers its team members something completely different to the rest of the market, as it has followed in the footsteps of businesses like John Lewis to become 100% employee owned. This means you’ll earn a tax-free profit share on top of your salary and, from Day One, will be able to influence the future of the business.
This is just one of the ways the firm demonstrates that it really values its team. Employees are also given autonomy and there is a culture of trust and mutual respect, with hybrid working available. There’s a real focus on personal growth at this firm and, as a result, it has a great reputation for retaining staff and promoting from within.
A firm proud of its Yorkshire roots and values, it has expanded to encompass over 15 offices across the region. Your work will have a significant social impact on the local community, and you’ll feel proud of the difference you are making to the world. You’ll join a real team here, which values team targets more than individual billing.
You’ll start on 23 days holiday per year, but this will increase to 26 days after just one years’ service and to a market-leading provision of 31 days after just five years. The firm also offers discounted bus travel, a Cycle to Work scheme, subsidised gym membership, a health cash plan and, after a years’ service, an interest free travel loan, free conveyancing and a free will.
