My client are currently looking for a 2-4 year pqe family lawyer (solicitor or legal executive).
By way of background, they are looking specifically for someone with 2-4 year pqe - not looking for NQ or someone wo need any training up and teaching, and equally, looking for someone who will work with and for the Head of Department, most definitely not the other way around. They will need experience of dealing with financial settlements/ancillary relief. They need to be motivated, personable, family law practitioner (solicitor or FILEX) to work with their head of department, and their assistant.
My client is a long established but modern thinking Legal 500 rated firm. That said, they do try and provide pretty flexible working for their colleagues so they can enjoy a work life balance. They work hard to provide exceptional one on one service at reasonable cost across all their teams. The more immediate short term need has arisen sadly because of bereavement. The long term need is that we are looking to grow their teams, and whoever they interview has to fit in with them as a firm and also has to have an eye on marketing/developing with the Head of department and the team.
They are looking for a personable experienced solicitor or Fellow Legal Executive capable of managing a busy family law workload. Ordinarily we work open plan, although currently the majority of time is spent working remotely.
Please email me your cv if you IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE and meet the above criteria and happy to work near Gatwick
