Apply now
  • 3+ PQE
  • Qualified solicitor, legal executive or experience paralegal
  • 50% hybrid – clear commitment to flexibility when many firms are scaling back
  • Fantastic learning experience
  • Legal 500 Leading Firm

We are working with a very well-regarded private client team within a Legal 500 Leading Firm looking to recruit a private client lawyer with at least three years’ experience.

You will help drive the team forward into the next stage of its growth plan, enjoying lots of reward and recognition along the way.

While many firms are scaling back on the number of days team members are permitted to work from home, this firm has recently increased its hybrid working policy to 50% of the week – a clear sign of commitment to the flexibility and trust it offers its teams.

You’ll have the opportunity to build your leadership skills, paving the way for a more senior role in the future, helping to supervise an NQ. This is the perfect role for those who would like to dip their toe into management but would like plenty of support and coaching to build their confidence.

You’ll help maintain relationships with a longstanding and loyal client base, managing a broad remit of matters including wills, trusts, probate, Court of Protection matters and powers of attorney.

The firm offers a great benefits package, including life insurance, an enhanced pension plan and an enhanced holiday allowance.

You’ll join a sociable, friendly team and have the opportunity to take part in charity and volunteering work on behalf of the firm.

The right candidate may be a qualified solicitor, legal executive or experienced paralegal.
