Full time
Contract type
Child panel membership preferable.

This award-winning firm is continuing to expand, taking on matters in privately-funded and legally-aided family work.   The firm is known for its commitment to providing a positive, proactive working environment for staff and an extremely supportive level of service to clients.  As a result of this continuing expansion, a vacancy has arisen for an additional fee-earner to join the family department based at the Bradford office. This is a great opportunity for a fairly junior solicitor or legal executive to join a specialist team and benefit from an outstanding level of expertise, as well as enjoying a substantial salary-and-benefits package.

The firm is looking for that indefinable ‘something extra’ – a commitment to achieving great results for clients, ambition tempered by a sense of humour, and enthusiasm for networking and marketing.  PQE is not as important as attitude, therefore, although it is probable that the successful candidate will have at least two years’ experience and, ideally, child panel membership or some similar accreditation.  You should be knowledgeable across all aspects of family law in general, and able to deal with a caseload including domestic violence, care proceedings, divorce and finance matters.  For further details of this family lawyer vacancy, please call Karl, quoting reference KT25214.

You will:-
Be a solicitor or legal executive with a good background in family law;
Preferably, have relevant panel membership;
Be looking to develop your career with this firm, and be enthusiastic about networking and marketing;
Possess excellent client care skills, with the ability to explain complex matters in clear, accessible language.
