Our client, an esteemed legal practice in the North-West, is seeking an experienced Private Family Solicitor with at least 3 years PQE to join their team in Chester City Centre. This practice prides itself on its hard-earned reputation and commitment to its clients, promising to deliver solutions that its clients can depend on.

As a member of their team, you’ll enjoy a competitive salary, flexible working hours, and a clear route for progression. You’ll have the invaluable opportunity to handle a growing private family caseload, including high-net-worth work while working towards a manageable target.

You’ll be a diligent family lawyer who can confidently deal with finance matters independently. With at least 3 years of PQE, your experience in finance work as part of divorce matters and private family law will be vital. However, it’s not all about the work; our client appreciates a sociable culture so a personable, easy-going character is desired.

This progressive firm values its staff as much as its clients. Therefore, you will benefit from a hybrid working model following a probation period. This allows you the flexibility of working 1 or 2 days from home. In addition, you’ll have the chance to benefit from a generous bonus scheme and receive a parking allowance, health cashback, and more.

The firm offers a full range of legal services, celebrating the individual needs of their clients and championing their staff’s welfare. With numerous connections across Cheshire, North Wales, Liverpool and Manchester, this is a fantastic opportunity for you to become a part of an influential legal practice.

So, if you’re looking to enhance your career within a supportive, social environment, apply now to become part of a team that values progression and work-life balance.
