Job Details

A Private Client Solicitor with upwards of two years post qualification experience is required to join one of the strongest and leading Private Client departments in the North East market. This opportunity to join this city centre private practice firm can offer progression, high net worth clients, and a full mix of private client matters for you to manage.

Our client is open to having very confidential chats with any private client solicitors who would like to have an initial chat, find out more about the firm and the quality of work. So if you could be thinking it's worth finding out more about this opportunity please do not hesitate to contact Fiona Hill at SaccoMann.

Duties and responsibilities

- Managing a busy and diverse caseload of a range of Private Client matters, including the preparation of complex wills, the administration of high value estates and all manner of trusts.

- You will be joining a highly experienced and close-knit team made up of 2 Partners, 1 Associate, 3 Solicitors and a Paralegal. These two Partners are highly recognised for their Private Client work and are keen to expand with another Solicitor to the department.

- The firm are looking for the successful applicant to essentially complement the team and hit the ground running; therefore, full autonomy of your own caseload is essential as you will be largely unsupervised.

- Contributing to the implementation of business development strategies such as participating in business development activities both in and out of office hours.

- The firm truly pride themselves on providing top-tier standards of legal services and client care and are looking for someone to work in line with this ethos and mindset

The ideal candidate:

- Ideally, you will be STEP qualified. Although this is not essential, it would place your application at a distinct advantage. However our client would also support you in this qualification if studying STEP was of interest to you.

- You will have experience of handling a mixed caseload of Private Client matters autonomously, with a demonstrable history of strong financial performance/fee earning.

- The ability to work under pressure in this role is essential and so you must be able to organise and prioritise your work effectively.

- You will be a confident communicator with capabilities in managing client expectations on wide ranging needs.

- Open discussion around the possibility of flexible working, part time hours and working from home.
