Job Details


Our client is a long established general practice with a substantial Criminal Defence department and a full commitment to this field of law. Their expertise spans from Magistrates Court to Crown Court offences, and also VHCC and Fraud work - they act for clients locally and also nationally.

They are looking to appoint an enthusiastic Criminal defence solicitor who will ideally be prepared to do out of hours work (as part of a good sized team) and who will be settled in West Yorkshire. Duty status would be ideal, but Accredited solicitors or even those who have bags of enthusiasm and motivation will be considered as this firm needs someone with the right attitude.

The suitable candidate will be keen to see opportunities to raise their profile and to establish client relationships, as this 'marketing' mindset is of importance in the Criminal Defence field. This is a well resourced firm which enjoys a good market position and so for a criminal lawyer with the right focus it represents a good longterm opening and future Partnership is not beyond the realms of possibility.

Remuneration will be according to your experience and background but the firm is prepared to make a proper investment in the right individual.

Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.


Brooke Thornham Consulting is a legal recruitment business established in April 2018 as a partial continuation of a previous brand which had enjoyed a successful 10 years of trading from 2007 and built a stellar reputation. With offices in Leeds, we specialise in the recruitment of Solicitors from Newly Qualified through to Partner level, and our focus is on the commercial market.

We are well networked with clients in the north of England where we serve an enviable client list encompassing Top 20 national brands and also regional practices and boutique firms. Our trade mark is our pragmatism, and trying to offer value at every opportunity.

We believe that when you give more, you get more. That’s why we’re generous with our time and expertise, and why we go out of our way to understand you, share our knowledge and add something extra – every time you work with us.

We’re experts in our field – and we get results. But over time, we develop something even more important: the intuitive understanding that really special relationships are built on.
