Our client, a Legal 500, multi-award-winning law firm with a huge focus on employee wellbeing, is recruiting for a private family lawyer with 4+ PQE to join them as an Associate or Senior Associate and play an instrumental part in growing their team in Leeds.  

You will be able to top-up the very competitive salary being offered by the firm via an outstanding bonus structure that sees the team earning 20% of anything it bills over target. 

In addition, the firm has a truly exceptional culture and has pioneered several initiatives within the legal market to improve and maintain employee wellbeing (and has won multiple awards for such). 

Here, you will benefit from unrivalled flexibility when it comes to your working week, as the leadership team of the firm want you to enjoy a fantastic life/work balance. This means you’ll be coming to work feeling well-rested and motivated. 

In addition to this ultra-flexible approach, you’ll also be able to work from home two days per week, making the firm extremely family and life friendly! 

As well as benefitting from a competitive financial package and flexible working, you’ll enjoy excellent benefits such as a generous holiday allowance and private medical.  

Working as part of a highly regarded and experienced family team, you will handle a caseload of purely HNW divorce, finance and private children cases valuing £1-5million. The right candidate will have experience of working on similar cases and be able to run cases independently. 

The team is growing (across three offices nationally) and there will be future opportunities to progress your career as it expands.  

The firm is open to applicants wanting to join on part-time hours.
