We are a long established solicitors practice with high standards and getting the best results for our clients is at the heart of all we do. We invest in our teams in order to develop skills at all levels and we welcome speculative CVs.
We are seeking motivated experienced solicitors to work independently in our busy Family department which covers a wide variety of areas including divorce, financial remedy, separation, injunction and public and private children matters. Successful candidates will be responsible for marketing and promoting the department together with the firm.
Accustomed to handling matters from inception to completion, and experience of conducting your own advocacy, the successful candidate will take over an existing caseload of predominantly privately-funded divorce, financial remedy and private children matters. A demonstrable appreciation of good practice in private client billing procedures is required. It is not compulsory to have legal aid experience but should an applicant have legal aid experience this would be considered.
We have offices at Ingleby Barwick, Coulby Newham and Middlesbrough, and you will be required to attend clients in person and over the telephone, to take instructions and provide advice, showing an ability to work to tight deadlines, prioritising your workload and progressing matters accordingly. You will need to have excellent communication skills, both written and oral, and be able to demonstrate good interpersonal skills with a range of people from all backgrounds and work as a team member with different levels of staff. You will need to be self-serving using Microsoft packages and have a current full driving licence.
Salary dependent upon experience.
