Apply now
  • HNW complex work
  • Hybrid working – two days from home
  • Fantastic progression opportunities
  • Work part-time if you wish (three/four days)

A long-standing South Yorkshire firm is recruiting for a Senior Family Solicitor with at least six years PQE to join its friendly and down-to-earth team at its office in Sheffield.

This is an exciting opportunity to join an established close-knit family team and handle an interesting caseload of HNW complex work, some of which will have an international element.

Working as part of a small team, you’ll be a big fish in a small pond, so you’ll be able to really make your mark. If career progression is important to you, have lots of opportunities to develop your skills and there’s lots of room to progress, as well as the potential for partnership in the future.

The firm are really proud of their down-to-earth and friendly culture. You won’t be micromanaged but will have access to as much support as you need, so you can focus on doing what you do best, providing an excellent service to your clients.

As well as a top-of-market salary, you’ll enjoy a healthy work-life balance as you split your week between home and the office. You’ll also be able to work part-time or a shorter week, so this is the perfect position if you’re looking to reduce your hours or are returning from a period of parental leave.
