Apply now
  • Homeworking for most of the month (one day per month in office) 
  • Diverse board – over 40% female and 25% family lawyers 
  • Wellbeing focus – duvet days, birthday off 

A highly respected, full-service firm with a long heritage in Greater Manchester is looking for a Senior Private Family Solicitor to join its friendly team in Bolton.    

You’ll gain access to unrivalled flexibility, as you’ll only have to attend office one day per month. 

You will join a friendly and supportive team with excellent billings and an incredibly low staff turnover; and it’s no wonder – the firm is committed to supporting the wellbeing of its team members, offering a duvet day and your birthday off each year and home working for most of the month.   

You’ll get a coaching and mentoring plan on joining the firm to support your development.  

The firm is serious about diversity and inclusion, and over 40% of its board are female, and a quarter of board members are family law specialists.  

You’ll enjoy a high-quality caseload of private family matters, including divorce and finances, and perform your own advocacy. The right candidate will be fantastic at delivering first-rate client care and will also be willing to get involved in business development (which will be supported by the internal marketing team and other departments). 

You’ll also get lots of admin and secretarial support to help maintain a very manageable caseload.  

The role is easily commutable from Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Manchester, Blackburn and Wigan, and there’s free parking available.
