Wills, Tax & Trust Solicitor

Apply now
  • 2+ PQE
  • Fantastic salary – 10%+ above market rate for your PQE level, plus 20% bonus
  • Hybrid working
  • Clear progression routes with transparent criteria

This is an exciting opportunity for a Wills Tax & Trusts Solicitor with 2+ PQE to join a highly regarded, multi-regional firm in Shropshire.

You’ll join a close-knit team within a growing office of 40 people and have the opportunity to work with colleagues from other offices across the UK, including a new and flourishing contentious probate team. You’ll have the option to visit other offices, with all expenses paid.

The department has a fantastic reputation, a growing caseload of good quality work available, and is ranked in Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners.

Your caseload will be extremely varied, consisting of complex, HNW work to include wills, inheritance tax planning, asset protection and knowledge of capital taxes. As a regional practice, the client base occupies that sweet spot of being small enough for your caseload to be varied/not repetitive (as with some national firms) but large enough to be complex.

The firm has a fantastic employee retention record, with the role only becoming available due to genuine organic growth.  Many of the firm’s partners and senior management team have been with the firm since solicitor or associate-level, demonstrating the unrivalled career path you could forge here. Quite unusually, there are also non-traditional routes to management for those lawyers who aren’t sure they want to remain fee-earning for the rest of their career.

Your benefits package will include an enhanced annual leave allowance (up to 35 days plus bank holidays and Christmas close) and pension provision, healthcare scheme, death in service and free parking scheme. All solicitors in the team are supported in undertaking STEP or ACTAPS qualifications, if they wish to.

The firm sets very reasonable billing targets of 1000 hours, supporting a fantastic work/life balance. This makes the firm’s generous bonus scheme even more attractive, as it kicks in when you reach 80% of your target – providing an extremely attainable way to bump up your annual salary significantly.
