Private Client Senior Associate 6+ PQE – Three days from home – Legal 500 – Progression opportunity

Apply now

This is an exciting opportunity for a private client solicitor with at least six years’ experience to join a highly regarded, full-service firm with offices across the North West at senior associate level.
You will join an experienced team of Legal 500 ranked solicitors, handling wills, probate, trusts and estate matters, and be able to work from home up to three days per week.
The department has a fantastic reputation, a growing caseload of good quality work available, and is ranked in Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners.
The firm has a fantastic employee retention record, with the role only becoming available due to genuine organic growth.  Many of the firm’s partners and senior management team have been with the firm since solicitor or associate-level, demonstrating the unrivalled career path you could forge here.
Quite unusually, there are also non-traditional routes to management for those lawyers who aren’t sure they want to remain fee-earning for the rest of their career.
In addition to a competitive salary, the firm also offers an enhanced annual leave allowance and pension provision, healthcare scheme, death in service and subsidised parking scheme.
The firm sets very reasonable billing targets (enabling you to achieve an attractive work/life balance), and its bonus scheme kicks in when you reach 80% of your target, providing an extremely attainable way to bump up your annual salary significantly.
In addition, all solicitors in the team are supported in undertaking STEP or ACTAPS qualifications, if they wish to.
The firm has a fantastic approach to equal opportunities and will consider part-time applicants.
