Apply now
  • Super flexible hybrid working policy – work at least four days per week from home 
  • Play a key role in growing the family team at a brand-new office 
  • Future partnership 
  • Fantastic salary and benefits 

A “going places” regional firm with a super flexible hybrid working policy is recruiting for a Senior Family Solicitor with at least six years PQE to join its team at its brand-new office in Chester. 

The firm offers a whopping four days per week from home (blowing the market average of 2.7 days out of the water) and is wholly committed to upholding this in the future. It offered a hybrid working policy before the pandemic and has increased it over time, enabling its team to enjoy complete trust and supporting their work/life balance.  

This is an exciting opportunity to take a step up and really make your mark. You’ll be the firm’s inaugural family lawyer in Chester and so will play a key role in deciding its direction and will build your own team around you.  

If career progression is important to you, you’ll have lots of opportunities to develop your skills and progress in your role because of the firm’s clear progression pathway, and partnership would be on the cards in the future.  

As well as a fantastic salary based on what you can bring to the table, you’ll also benefit from 25 days holiday allowance (plus Bank Holidays and Christmas closure), pension contribution, healthcare plan, life assurance and annual bonus, and work within a friendly, close-knit team. 

If you’re looking to accelerate your career at an award-winning firm, but not at the expense of your work-life balance, speak to us to find out more today.
