Job Details

  • 2+ PQE 
  • Be the succession plan and step into a senior role in just two years 
  • Hybrid working, plus flexitime and ability to bank your hours 
  • The firm has carved out a niche for itself in the digital tech space  
A highly respected Legal 500 law firm is looking for a rising star corporate solicitor with 2+ PQE to come in and enjoy an unrivalled progression pathway, becoming the succession plan for the current head of team. 

You’ll be taken under the wing of the current head of corporate, who will show you the ropes, ready to take over in this position in just two years as they retire. This is a stellar opportunity to leapfrog your peers, moving into a senior leadership position after two years of dedicated mentoring. 

You’ll be able to base yourself in either Leeds or Harrogate. The firm has a generous hybrid working policy and you’ll also have access to flexitime and the ability to “bank” time worked to take as extra annual leave (on top of an already generous leave allowance of 25 days, increasing with years of service, with the option to buy more). 

You’ll advise on a caseload of relatively straightforward corporate matters, such as restructuring and shareholder agreements, with the opportunity to branch out into more complex work as the team grows. 

The firm has a fantastic reputation in the market and an impressive roster of clients spanning all sectors but has carved out a niche for itself in the digital tech space, working with interesting businesses on commercialising and protecting their IP on a global scale. 

The right candidate will be able to form and maintain positive working relationships with clients and referrers, and project themselves well in the market.   

The role would suit someone looking for a unique development opportunity and fast progression, or even someone looking to leave a national firm to achieve a better work/life balance, predictability and to drop the late nights, without compromising their career path.
