This is an exciting opportunity for a Private Client Solicitor or Legal Executive with at least three years experience to join a well-regarded, award-winning firm at their offices in Wakefield or Garforth.

The role comes with lots of room for progression up to Associate, Senior Associate and Partner in the future. If there’s a particular niche within private client that you enjoy, you’ll be supported to help build you name in this area and eventually become an expert.

The firm is incredibly family-friendly and offers the option of compressed hours and flexitime, plus you will also be able to work one or two days per week from home.

You’ll join an experienced, highly engaged team of seven private client solicitors, ranging from NQ all the way up to senior team members. Day-to-day, you’ll get hands-on exposure to a varied caseload including some high-value matters and Court of Protection cases.

The department has a growing caseload of good quality and interesting work available, and a wide and active referral network. Targets are set at a very comfortable four chargeable hours per day to ensure a manageable workload and exceptional work quality.

The firm is well-regarded within the region and has a strong focus on employee wellbeing. Team members get plenty of time to recharge, with 25 days holiday, plus Christmas closure and your birthday off. You’ll also have access to free parking, healthcare and pension schemes and support with learning and development for additional qualifications, such as STEP.
