  • Competitive salary
  • Hybrid working
This is an exceptional opportunity for a Family Law Specialist with a minimum of 10 years PQE to join a highly respected Legal 500 firm in Manchester. Our client prides themselves on providing a platform for ambitious professionals to establish and cultivate their personal brand within the legal industry, offering a high level of autonomy and responsibility.

This unique role involves managing a caseload primarily focusing on finances, with 99% of the work being private in nature. You'll have the chance to build your own caseload, eventually establishing a dedicated team and involving yourself with business development, contributing significantly to the growth of the firm.

Ideally, you'll have substantial experience in dealing with finances in Family Law from a large firm, with a recognised name and an established network of referers. With strong business development skills, you'll be capable of building your caseload from scratch, demonstrating your leadership abilities and initiative.

In return, you'll have the opportunity to further your career in a flexible and supportive environment, with a clear pathway to partnership for the right candidate. Our client values its employees as individuals, not numbers.

Our client is a Legal 500 firm known for their dynamic and progressive approach to law. Published in The Times and The Guardian, they are highly respected in the legal industry providing an ideal environment for ambitious professionals to develop their personal brand.

If you're a proactive and ambitious Family Law Specialist looking for the chance to make your mark and drive your career forward, don't hesitate. Make this role your own and create an inspiring legacy in family law.
