We are seeking a Solicitor / Legal Executive or Locum to assist in our busy family department with a view to developing and managing their own caseload from either our Petersfield or Midhurst office.

Ideally with 1-4 years PQE  (or 5 years PQE for the Locum role) you will have had experience of working in a family department, have good academic skills and a commitment to looking after your clients. We would also welcome enquiries from more experienced lawyers if you feel you would fit in with our values.

You will assist with the current caseload in the department and grow your role within the department. You must be willing to be involved in client sourcing work and business development and be confident in promoting the firm’s values. You will be providing the highest level of service to our clients, which is tailored to their individual needs. You will also need to share our values of being ‘Open, Responsible and Fair’, which lie at the heart of what we stand for as a firm and which guide how we approach all aspects of our work.

We are looking for a full time role or a combination of part time roles. We have a culture of being flexible and value a work/life balance, so school hours and remote working are all possible for the right candidate. There will also be training opportunities and we can offer excellent career prospects.
