- Progression opportunity – promotion to Senior Associate
- Three days from home
- Tier 1 Legal 500
Our client, a full-service national law firm, is seeking a Private Client Senior Associate to join its Tier 1 Legal 500 private client team in Manchester.
Not only does this role come with a great salary, but you’ll be able to work from home three days per week. The firm is also willing to provide a Senior Associate title for anyone currently working at Associate-level and has experience in building client and referrer relationships and supporting business development.
The right candidate will be STEP qualified or be working towards it, with a solid background of advising on, implementing and running complex wills, lifetime trusts, deeds of variation, powers of attorneys and estate administration, including lifetime IHT planning.
You will be able to demonstrate strong financial disciplines and the ability to work collaboratively with other teams and external professionals and have a passion for growing strong client and referrer relationships.
The firm is committed to further growth and is investing heavily in its private client division to support the strong flow of work coming from the firm’s commercial divisions.
We think this client is a bit of a gem – because it has all the perks of a national, with the heart of a regional.
Its commitment to people over profits is demonstrated by the fact that team members stay for an average of six years – which is well above the industry average. If you needed more evidence, look to its roster of accreditations, including Stonewall, Disability Confident and Halo Hair Code. It has also recently been named as one of the best employers for employee wellbeing.
In addition to a competitive salary, you’ll get an enhanced annual leave entitlement, plus the opportunity to buy more, an additional two days off per year to take part in charity work, a health cash plan, and access to lots of initiatives to support your physical and mental wellbeing.
