Apply now

We’re recruiting for a fantastic opportunity for a Legal Business Development Executive to join an award-winning North West law firm. 

For this position, our client is open to speaking with gregarious lawyers with business development experience who might be thinking about taking a step away from private practice. 

The role comes with an excellent package and a fantastic approach to flexible working, as you’ll be able to work from home for part of the week. For the rest of the time, you’ll be based at the firm’s state-of-art offices in Altrincham, South Manchester. 

Utilising your excellent interpersonal skills, you’ll have lots of facetime with clients and prospective clients as you nurture relationships and coordinate BD activity across all departments. Working closely alongside the Head of Business Development, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to grow your skills and expertise in this area and ultimately, develop your career, without the stress of managing a caseload. 

Despite its suburban location, the firm is known for handling top-quality ‘city centre work’. You’ll routinely deal with big-name clients, even the shiniest national law firm would be envious of, such as Tata, Renaker, Network Rail, Lad Bible, Joseph Holt and Dulux, without the stress of the commute into the city centre. 

The firm has an excellent reputation as an employer and is well-known for its exceptional company culture. Its team have a staff retention rate of over 90% and a 99% employee confidence rating in their leaders. 

On top of a very competitive salary and an excellent work-life balance, you’ll receive a range of additional benefits including generous annual leave, private healthcare and subsidised gym membership.
