  • NQ role 
  • Hybrid working, plus flexitime 
  • Opportunity to move into exclusively private family law – even if you currently work on public/care files 
  • Find good quality work closer to home, plus hybrid working and flexitime 
  • Fast progression as team grows 

We’re excited to bring to market this fantastic Private Family Solicitor role for a newly qualified solicitor.  

In the role, you’ll handle a caseload of exclusively private family law matters, including divorce, finance and private children – so this is perfect for someone who wants to focus exclusively on this specialism. 

You’ll join a small but perfectly formed team consisting of another solicitor and a paralegal, giving you the space and opportunity to progress ahead of your peers and move into Associate, Senior Associate and Partner roles in the future as the team grows and continues to prosper. The team has a strong pipeline of work generated from diversified sources, including internal teams, referrers and word-of-mouth. 

You’ll be treated like an adult here, with lots of flexibility (the firm boasts a generous hybrid working policy, plus flexitime) and absolutely zero micromanagement.  

There is a down-to-earth culture with plenty of opportunity to socialise together, as the firm regularly organises charity events, wine tastings, walks, theatre trips and more.  

If you are looking for a fantastic career with plenty of room for progression, while avoiding the corporate politics, pressures and commuting distances of teams based further south, don’t delay in speaking with us today.
