JOB TITLE: Family Solicitor
PQE REQUIRED: 2 years+ PQE
Our client is making leaps and bounds in the local market, and now has various offices across Somerset. The appointed Family Solicitor will join a busy department and will build a caseload up until the point where the role can be sustained. The Solicitor will join a team of experts who advise on matters including adoptions, civil partnerships. Cohabitation, divorce, domestics finance, child arrangements and financial matters. The Solicitor is likely to take on a workload that will require mediation, as well as attendance at Court. This is an excellent opportunity to work on an extremely varied and interesting caseload. This role is perfect for a candidate who is looking to really expand their knowledge and expertise in family law and to rapidly develop their career.
The ideal Family Solicitor will have had some solid experience working within a family department at another recognised firm, whether that be as a qualified Solicitor or a Legal Executive, and should have previously worked on a caseload of privately funded family matters, including advising on financial matters. The Solicitor should have had proven experience of fee earning within a busy department and should be flexible in their approach to their workload, as no two days are likely to be the same in this role. Candidates that are most desirable are those who have had experience of business development and marketing and, ideally, have helped towards developing a growing family team in their previous role. Our client is really looking for a Family Solicitor who is a go-getter and who is keen to hit the ground running from the outset. There is plenty of opportunity for career development within this role for a hardworking Solicitor who is keen to learn.
The firm is developing a great reputation in a spectrum of legal services and you will have the opportunity to work alongside some highly professional colleagues from other areas of law, which is an ideal way to develop a fully rounded future career path. If you are a Family Solicitor looking for future career development and progression prospects, then there is a real opportunity here for the right candidate. This role is open to both Solicitors and legal executives with the relevant experience. On offer here is a competitive salary and competitive benefits package.
