Private Client Solicitor 3+ PQE – Full-time or Part-time

Apply now

Our client is seeking a private client solicitor with at least three years’ experience to join their highly regarded, full-service firm at either their Stockport or Macclesfield office.

As there are relatively few senior solicitors in the team, you will have a clear progression route to the top and have the chance to build something of your own.

The firm has achieved Investors in People Gold accreditation, demonstrating the level of training and development you will receive here to boost your career.

The firm has four offices across the North West and is particularly well-known in the Cheshire region.

You will manage a varied caseload of private client work, including wills, probate, LPAs and inheritance tax planning. The work is high quality and complex, and you’ll get career-building experience in dealing with HNW estates – a highly desirable skill in the private client talent market.

You’ll have plenty of support to manage your cases, as the firm employs several trainees, legal assistants, paralegals and junior solicitors.

The firm would also consider applicants wanting to go part-time and work 30 hours per week over four days.
