A leading national personal injury boutique is recruiting for a Head of Private Client to join its team in Merseyside. This is an unmissable opportunity for a solicitor with 5+ PQE to take a supported step up into a leadership role.  

The role also comes with hybrid working and you’ll be able to work from home three days per week.  

You will manage a team of seven, consisting of a trainee solicitor and administrative staff. The managerial aspects of the role would be light-touch, including authorising holidays, conducting appraisals, and being the go-to person for technical queries. The main aspect of the role is to have the technical expertise to advise on wills, trusts and probate matters.
