In order to be suitable for this role you will have:

  • at least 5 years post admission experience in the area of family law;
  • experience in transactional work and general advisory work;
  • the ability to adapt and be flexible;
  • the ability to work autonomously;
  • the ability and desire to manage clients;
  • first class technical skills and commercial nous;
  • drive, ambition, energy;
  • ability to work in a team environment;
  • ability to mentor and supervise junior lawyers

Benefits & Culture

On offer is a competitive salary. The firm is well resourced, and you will have access to cutting edge technology. The working culture is inclusive and in growth mode. Progression is based on merit and the partners of this firm are genuinely invested in your development and career growth.

Other benefits include flexible working arrangements, paid professional memberships, and continuous learning and development.
