Family Solicitor (Maternity Cover) - Newcastle

An exciting opportunity has arisen for an experienced Family Solicitor to cover a period of maternity leave for a Legal 500 listed and Chambers rated firm just outside of Newcastle City Centre.

You will be joining a small team of Family specialists, handling your own busy caseload of files including separation and divorce, ancillary relief and finances, cohabitation, civil partnership disputes and private children matters. You will also be responsible for assisting on more complex matters as and when they arise. The team are also heavily involved in business development and marketing activities, so you will be responsible for getting involved with a variety of events and initiatives across the firm promoting the team and its services.

The successful candidate will be a qualified Family Solicitor, or Legal Executive equivalent, with a minimum of two years PQE in Family law. You will be confident handling your own caseload of family matters, under minimal supervision. As this is a maternity cover you will be picking up an existing caseload of files and expected to hit the ground running. You will be available from January 2017 for a period of 12 months.
