Market leading salary, ongoing support and excellent work life balance available for the chosen individual.


My client has long been regarded as one of the leading firms in the Thames Valley in both the non-contentious and contentious private client fields. In addition to advising on and conducting the administration of estates and trusts (whether acting as executor and/or trustee or not), the preparation and drafting of wills, codicils and lifetime disposals, the team specialises in advising clients in relation to tax affairs at every stage of their lives, with a view to implementing tax-efficient financial arrangements during their lifetimes and for passing on wealth for future generations.

Working with a Partner, you will be given responsibility early and will handle a mixed case load of private client matters including preparation of Wills & Probate, Tax and Estate Planning, trusts and Powers of attorney etc. This is an excellent opportunity for a Private Client Solicitor with circa 2 years+ PQE to join a successful regional firm that will offer quick and ongoing career progression up to Partner level.

Required skills & experience/ responsibilities:

* Professional, efficient and effective management of varied Private Client work.
* Excellent client liaison/interpersonal skills (verbal and written). Ability to organise, prioritise and handle a busy and varied case-load. Commercial awareness and competent time management skills.
* IT/PC literacy.
*Team player, who is also proactive, independent, self motivated with plenty of commitment and initiative.
* STEP membership preferred but this is not essential.

The successful candidate will be a confident and ambitious individual who is looking to develop their long term career in private client. I urge you to make an application today.
