One of our key clients, a leading multi-site full-service law firm with several North West locations, is recruiting a senior family law solicitor to join them as Head of Department.

You will be joining a thriving firm at their modern conveniently located office in Chester. This is a very exciting time to join this firm with plenty of opportunity in the family team for growth and development. It is a busy and profitable team already but, given the level of seniority, some network/ contacts/ referral sources will be expected.

The firm is highly ranked in the legal directories, and the role will consist exclusively of divorce and finances work (and related children matters) for its mid to high net worth client base often involving SME business owners.

This kind of opportunity doesn't come up very often and attracts a healthy salary on top of a strong benefits package but more importantly a platform to do interesting and profitable private family law work at a firm with career progression opportunities to a senior level.

Salary up to £70,000. Applicants with at least of 8 years post qualification experience as a family law solicitor are desirable.

Benefits include home working a couple of days a week, flexiblily in working hours, 28 days annual leave, enhanced pension, private healthcare.

Testimonial: I would just like to say thanks for Joe at Thornton Legal for his hard work in securing me an employment associate position at a firm that I have admired for a long time. He was patient, encouraging and enthusiastic, and wasn't afraid to give constructive criticism when it was needed. I imagine I wasn't the most straight forward placement you have made but we got there in the end! Thanks as well for the lunch and pint, a lovely gesture. Thornton Legal will always my first recruitment call.
