An esteemed North West law firm known for its exceptional service and client-focused approach is seeking a dedicated and skilled Private Family Solicitor to join their highly respected team in South Manchester.

There are no individual targets at this firm, instead, you'll work with your colleagues towards team targets, reflecting the firm's collaborative culture.

The role is integral not only to the success of the department but also to your professional growth, as you'll be delivering expert legal advice to a range of high-net-worth clients. Engaging with matters from divorce and financial remedies to complex cohabitee disputes, you'll work alongside seasoned professionals on high-level, interesting cases.

To excel in this role, you should have a robust academic background with experience in privately funded family work, including both divorces and finances.

Our client offers an attractive package including hybrid working, career development, and most importantly, an environment that values your wellbeing. They are dedicated to investing in their staff, recognising that a supportive work culture paves the way for both individual and firm-wide success.

Our client is a fantastic example of a firm that has grown organically and ensures a supportive, friendly work environment in keeping with its core values.
