  • 5+ PQE (qualified solicitor or CILEX) 
  • Hybrid working and reduced-hours week 
  • Progression to Senior position with lots of investment in you 
  • High-ranking Legal 500 team 

Due to an exciting influx of work, a highly respected law firm in Sheffield is looking for a Private Client Lawyer (qualified solicitor or CILEX) with 5+ years PQE and experience working on trusts matters to join their down-to-earth team. 

The firm is highly ranked in Legal 500, having just moved up yet another tier, demonstrating the direction of travel for the team.   
This is a fantastic opportunity for an experienced lawyer looking for a role that will allow them to continue to develop their skills and expertise, but not at the expense of their work-life balance, as you’ll be able to work flexibly under a hybrid working policy with reduced hours to boot. The firm will also consider candidates looking for part-time hours.  

The role comes with plenty of room for progression into a senior role in the future as the team grows. You’ll work directly for a brilliant head of department, who also heads up the training and development arm of the firm – so you’ll be encouraged and supported in building up your experience and exposure within the firm and market. 
You’ll join a talented and personable private client team, and work alongside several STEP-qualified lawyers and a Partner to handle a varied and interesting caseload, often on behalf of HNW individuals and families. 
Our client is one of South Yorkshire’s most well-established and well-thought-of law firms, dealing with the full spectrum of personal and commercial legal services. 
Pay is competitive and you’ll also receive a mix of benefits, including a number of wellbeing initiatives including discounted gym membership and an employee assistance programme. You’ll also benefit from discounted legal fees and a generous annual leave allowance.
