Criminal Duty Solicitor
A very prestigious criminal law firm has a space available for a duty solicitor to join the team.
My client is a well-established firm with a reputation for very successfully taking on 'heavy weight' serious crime, including terrorism and white-collar offences. It has a central presence in both Manchester and London and handles predominantly private work.
The role of duty solicitor will involve handling a very varied range of privately funded criminal defence magistrate's cases, and the natural serious crime focus of the practice means there will be plenty of opportunity to handle more serious files as you will be assisting on high value crown court files regularly.
Whilst competition for this role is high, the ideal candidate will have a breadth of experience. You will not just be confident but also eager to take on new challenges and continue to progress your career, regardless of your level of experience. Higher rights of audience are not compulsory for the role but will be an asset, and you must be on the duty rota or willing to reapply for January.
This is a duty solicitor role within a very high standard of firm - apply now to discuss this in further detail, in complete confidence
