Senior Family Solicitor 3+ PQE (Private & Legal Aid) – Hybrid Working

Apply now

Our client, a well-established, successful and growing Yorkshire firm, is looking for a 3+ PQE family solicitor to join its team.  

While you’ll be mainly based in the firm’s Barnsley office (it has two other offices across Yorkshire), you’ll be able to work from home for one day each week.   

Working as part of an experienced family team, you’ll deal with a mix of private and legal aid work and you will also have the opportunity to get involved in care work if you want to. You will also do your own advocacy work and will have the support of a personal secretary.  

You will run the legal aid offering, so this is a fantastic opportunity to step up and really make a difference within the team.  

You’ll command a salary of between £40,000 and £60,000 and will enjoy a competitive holiday allowance along with a generous car insurance allowance.  

Whether you’re an associate looking to take a step up or a more senior lawyer or partner looking to make a change if you’d like to expand your skills and progress your career at a down-to-earth and friendly firm, get in touch today to hear more about this opportunity.
