  • Get your career off to a stellar start with this outstanding family law boutique
  • Fully remote role, if you wish
  • Exclusively HNW private family caseload, with international elements
  • Opportunity to relocate abroad in the future, if you would like to
  • Attend international conferences

We are delighted to bring to market this exclusive role for a newly qualified solicitor to join an outstanding family law boutique in Manchester and take the best possible first step in a successful career in HNW private family law.

This opportunity also comes with the extremely rare potential to be fully remote, if this is something you’d like to explore. You’d attend the firm’s attractive, city centre offices only to access paperwork, in addition to attending court in Manchester when needed. Your learning experience would not be impacted, as the firm has embraced all the latest technologies to support a fully hybrid environment.

You’ll gain valuable experience in advising on high-net-worth and ultra-high-net-worth work, much of which will have an international element due to the referrals the firm receives from its extensive network of professionals. You’ll work on everything from divorces and prenups to child abduction cases.

You’ll learn to handle your own advocacy and get lots of exposure to court.

The Managing Partner of this boutique is high-profile, having started the firm following a glittering career with national law firms. She has built out an impressive team of family experts in the UK and internationally. As such, there will be the opportunity to relocate abroad if this is something you’d like to explore in the future.

You’ll build your technical and commercial expertise quickly, opening doors to progression opportunities at a faster rate than your peers. This includes progression from Solicitor to Associate and support to get there.

Additional benefits include an annual pay rise and bonus, enhanced annual leave package and lots of opportunities to develop your skills and attend international conferences, all expenses paid.
