  • Top-of-the-market pay 
  • 3 days from home plus flexible working 
  • Legal 500 team with existing work available, so no need for a following 
  • Clear progression to become a fixed share equity partner if desired 

Our client, an international, top-ranked firm, is looking for a Private Client Partner with 10+ PQE to join and lead its successful Legal 500 department in Manchester and secure equity partnership. 

This is a fantastic opportunity for a private client senior associate to take a step up or a salaried partner looking to join a leading firm where there are further opportunities for progression.  

Supported by the National Head of Private Client, you’ll become the go-to lawyer for other members of a close-knit team. As well as supporting and mentoring your junior colleagues, you’ll benefit from an excellent range of learning and development opportunities, to help you to continue to progress in your own legal career. 

The right candidate will have a solid background in advising on, implementing and running complex wills, lifetime trusts, deeds of variation, powers of attorneys and estate administration, including lifetime IHT planning. There’s no need to bring a following to the table as there is a solid pipeline of existing work for the team. 

In addition to unrivalled flexibility (with the option to work up to three days a week from home), the role is also offering a top-of-market salary and full benefits package.  

It’s important to this firm that its team members feel valued and rewarded, which is why it lets you build your own benefits package to suit your needs and lifestyle. In addition to the firm’s standard benefits, such as medical insurance, life insurance, online GP, pension and 25 days annual leave, you can choose from extras such as gym memberships, retail vouchers and a buy-as-you-earn share scheme.
