Private Family Solicitor NQ – Three days from home – Lower targets – Work directly for Partner
Sheffield City Centre
A full-service law firm based in Sheffield city centre is seeking an NQ Solicitor to join its family law department, working exclusively on private family matters.
You’ll gain a jumpstart in your career, as you will be supported in learning to manage a mixed caseload of divorce, finance and private children matters, as well as learning to do your own advocacy.
Unusually for the Yorkshire family market, you’ll be able to work from home three days per week.
You will work directly with and learn from a highly respected Family Partner and quickly rise up the ranks. The team is ranked in Legal 500 and enjoys a fantastic reputation in the local community.
You will also benefit from lower targets than most firms ask of their junior solicitors, only having to record around four hours of chargeable time per day. This will give you the time and space to really learn your trade and become an excellent family lawyer earlier on in your career.
You will also receive excellent benefits, such as a health cash plan, pension contribution, discretionary bonus, 24 days of holiday plus bank holidays and Christmas closure.
The right candidate will have at least one year's experience in dealing with family law matters, either as part of a training contract, paralegal experience or work experience.
