Childcare Solicitor

Job Description

Salary: £27000 to £32750 depending on PQE

We are a firm of family solicitors who specialise in Divorce/finance and Public law children (care proceedings) based in Southgate, London.

What Is Life Like Here?

We are a friendly, down-to-earth team.

We use cutting-edge systems, software and technology to make our work more efficient, streamlined and paperless. This allows you to focus on the client's legal case rather than red-tape. 

We expect you to work innovatively and flexibly. Even before the pandemic, we have not had an expectation for solicitors to be at the office all day, every day. Our systems allow you to seamlessly work from anywhere - at court in the morning? You can continue working from court in the afternoon. Have a home delivery in the middle of the day? You can work from home.

We operate a relaxed workplace and are based in modern, newly refurbished premises with various perks including snacks, drinks and dedicated breakout areas to make your day that bit easier and less stressful.

We have no dress code and simply expect appropriateness with our dress for your day policy. Seeing a client or going to court? Look professional. Spending the day dealing with documents and paperwork? Be comfortable.

We have no time-recording targets but expect you to work hard and meet your client's expectations and your billing targets - for which you are rewarded with a tiered and uncapped bonus scheme.​

Alongside all of this, we will develop, train and support you in the area of family law that you wish to specialise and grow in.

The ideal candidate will:

  • Be newly qualified or have up to five-years PQE.

  • Be able to independently deal with cases from start to finish, including advocacy.

  • Have good social, networking and business development skills.

  • Preferably have a client following or referral base.

  • Have commercial awareness and the ability to think and work innovatively.

What we will provide you:

  • Tiered & uncapped profit-sharing of your billing, payable monthly and annually, alongside annual salary and development reviews.

  • Pension scheme.

  • Company laptop, smartphone and any other tech that you may need.

  • Modern case management and research software.

  • Agile and remote working facilities (including after lockdown).

  • Ongoing training, support and development including Resolution membership.

  • 28 days holiday (inc. bank holidays) plus period from Christmas day to New Year's day.

  • Focus on your cases (no preparing of bills, dealing with new enquiries etc).

  • A range of perks and benefits including car parking, interest-free season ticket loan for travel and regular events, team trips and outings.
