Fantastic career prospects with this exciting young firm

THE FIRM
Conveniently located in the pretty town centre of Cleckheaton and with good road links, this well-accredited law firm continues to expand rapidly, taking instructions from an increasingly wide geographical area across West Yorkshire.  The firm is now looking for a solicitor to take on a caseload of quality instructions in the family law department.  This is a great opportunity to join a relatively young practice with great ambitions for the future.

THE ROLE
The firm is looking for a solicitor who can deal with a mix of primarily privately-funded matrimonial and family matters.  Panel membership would be an advantage but is not essential, although the firm is looking for someone who is ambitious and eager to increase the profile of his or her own practice as well as the firm as a whole.  Experience in undertaking own advocacy in the Family Court would be a bonus, and great client-care skills are essential. When applying for this vacancy, please quote reference SS26351.

THE CANDIDATE
You will:-
Ideally, have family panel membership;
Have some experience of Legal Aid work, although this is not the main focus of the role;
Be a solicitor of 3+ years’ PQE;
Have a keen eye for billing and costs issues;
Possess excellent communication and client-care skills with an empathetic and constructive approach;
Have great networking and marketing skills and enjoy the challenge of increasing the firm’s profile.
