Private Client Solicitor NQ-2 PQE – Phenomenal career prospects – STEP supported – Hybrid working

Apply now

This is a fantastic opportunity for a private client solicitor with up to two years’ experience to join a firm offering lots of career progression based in the pretty town of Chapel Allerton, near Leeds.

You will work directly alongside the Head of Department, gaining valuable experience and developing your technical and commercial expertise as you go. A genuine interest will be taken in your career development and progression.

There will be no limit to your progression here, as the firm truly believes in recognising and rewarding skill and hard work, as opposed to you having to wait for a set number of years after qualification before being promoted to associate and beyond. You only need to look to the firm’s Head of Private Client for evidence of this, as they were promoted into the position at just five years’ PQE.

You will handle a broad-ranging caseload of private client matters, including wills and trust matters, for a varied client base of both local and high-net-worth individuals with estates well in excess of £1 million.

The right candidate will have experience of handling probate matters, either as part of a seat within a training contract or as a qualified solicitor working within a private client team.

The firm has embraced flexible working and you will be able to work from home for up to two days a week. There is free parking, private healthcare and the firm will also support you in gaining a STEP qualification, if this is desired.

Speak to us about this fantastic career opportunity today.
