A thriving law firm in North Manchester is currently seeking a Private Family Solicitor to join their supportive and friendly team. This is a truly exceptional opportunity for someone keen on developing their career within family law and seeing themselves as a partner in the future.

In exchange for your dedication and hard work, you will be rewarded with a competitive salary, plus generous bonuses, which have previously included high-end gifts. Plus, with our client’s supportive culture and open-door policy, you’ll join a firm that values its employees and promotes a healthy work-life balance.

As Private Family Solicitor, you’ll take responsibility for a portfolio of private children law and finance matters, contributing significantly to the firm’s reputation for delivering high-quality legal services.
