Senior Family Care Solicitor 5+ PQE – Progression opportunity – Hybrid working

Apply now

Our client, a regional personal services law firm with a great reputation, is looking for a senior care family lawyer with at least five years’ PQE to join their team at any of their six offices across West Yorkshire.

The position is open to care solicitors wanting to be based in Leeds, Wakefield, Huddersfield, Pontefract, Hemsworth, or Batley – and you’ll also be able to work from home for part of your week under the firm’s hybrid working policy.

If you are looking for a care role closer to home in West Yorkshire, the flexibility this firm is offering in terms of location is unrivalled.

This is also a great progression opportunity, as you’ll join the firm as a senior solicitor working within a care team of 11 solicitors plus several family law trainees.

There won’t be any expectation on you to manage others – rather, you’ll be managing your own caseload of care proceedings – so this would suit someone who would like to move up into a more senior position without the need to directly manage a team.

The firm offers a clear progression framework up to partnership and invests heavily in the development of its team members to enable them to reach their full potential and support their career aspirations.

The firm has a fantastic reputation within the community and provides a high level of service to its clients, demonstrated by its five-star ranking on Review Solicitors.
