Job Description

An opportunity has arisen for a Private Client Lawyer to join a supportive Staffordshire firm on a part time basis. The position is envisioned to be 3 days a week, although the firm is flexible and will consider different working patterns, for example, working during school hours. Candidates are invited to discuss their ideal working patterns upon application.


You would handle an existing caseload of private client matters with the support of an experienced legal secretary. The firm is regularly instructed on high quality private client matters ranging from simple wills to complex taxable estates and deputyships. The quality of work and the strength of the department mean that the caseload can be tailored to suit the successful applicant. Whilst the caseload can be tailored to you it is expected to touch upon wills, probate, administration of estates, LPAs and possibly trusts and deputyships.


The firm is well established with a loyal client base and good reputation in the local area. They are family friendly and support their staff to succeed. This position would be ideally suited to an experienced Solicitor or Legal Executive who is able to plan their work effectively and who is seeking the work life balance afforded by part time hours.


The salary on offer will be dependent on experience and is expected to be in the region of £40,000 (FTE). There is scope to add additional benefits to the package for senior applicants.


There is scope for the position to develop over time, with routes to partnership for driven and capable individuals.


The essential candidate criteria are outlined below:


  • Qualified Solicitor of Legal Executive with a minimum of two years PQE
  • Able to handle a private client caseload with minimal supervision
  • Able to effectively prioritise own workload
