This is a superb opportunity to develop your skills within a highly established and innovative department and to work alongside leading solicitors and experts on stimulating, high-quality privately-funded cases. You'll be passionate about Family law and ideally will have significant experience of more than your years - for example, working as a paralegal in family law pre-qualification would be ideal. Given the nature of work that you'll deal with, it's essential that you have rounded client service skills and as well as being able to empathise with a wide range of clients in order to resolve the most sensitive and complicated practicalities involved in family break-ups. You'll be an excellent communicator with the ability to work with tact and sensitivity at all times. Crucially, you'll also have a proven track record in business development and networking to help in developing and building a successful Family Law Team at the top of the market in Leeds. If you're successful, you'll be joining a highly supportive team. You'll be rewarded with strong partner access, training and excellent career progression opportunities as well as the opportunity to work flexibly and to work for a well-respected national Family team.
In addition to your basic salary we have a competitive benefits package including pension, critical illness cover, health cash plan, death in service, discounted legal services, 25 days hols (this increases with length of service), discounted online shopping, discounted gym memberships and season ticket loans.
