Job Details

Are you looking to improve your quality of life, ditch the commute and embrace an exciting new opportunity?   

A progressive and values-driven law firm in Douglas are looking to take on an ambitious and enthusiastic Solicitor as the Head of their Private Client team. 

You’ll join just a handful of law firms doing meaningful private client work on the island, so there is an abundance of interesting work on offer. What’s more, because of the Isle of Man’s low tax rates and the wealth of many islanders, you’ll be exposed to a quality of work that you might not otherwise come across outside of London. 

Alongside handling a varied existing caseload, you’ll lead the team and have the opportunity to grow the private client team further. 

The firm are incredibly flexible and offer agile and home working to all their lawyers. They’re also open to the right candidate working part-time if you’d like to reduce your hours. 

This really is an unmissable position for a Private Client Solicitor looking for a more laid-back pace of life and to take the next step up in their career.

    You will be supported by the firm’s director and an assistant but won’t be micro-managed
