Charities Solicitor

An interesting and challenging opportunity has arisen in the top-ranking charities and education team of this growing and ambitious but friendly national, based in the Leeds office.

The firm has a widespread reputation for being a thoroughly pleasant place to work, with excellent quality work, a co-operative and collegiate way of working and no egos, which is borne out by their excellent retention rates and low turnover of staff.

The firm's charities and education team is one of the few nationally dedicated charities legal teams and they are UK leaders in the field. They act for a diverse range of clients including service providers, grant makers, religious orders, housing associations, professional societies, independent schools, academies, social enterprises and more.

Their advice spans a wide range of issues from general corporate M&A, governance and constitutional issues, through to trustees' duties and responsibilities, strategic partnerships, fundraising, trading and Charity Commission regulatory issues.

They have a fantastic opportunity for a qualified solicitor to join the team in Leeds, and also to work alongside colleagues in other offices. With no two days the same, the work is challenging and interesting and the team is straightforward, down to earth and very easy to work with, which accords with the culture of the whole firm.

They welcome applications from corporate, commercial, regulatory or trusts lawyers with either some experience in working with the charity or community & voluntary sector, or if not, a demonstrable interest in this area.

The team has a clear vision and an appetite for growth and this is an exciting time to be joining the firm, particularly the Leeds office, which is the smallest of the firm's offices, but has seen sustained and strategic growth over the last 2 years and is earmarked for further growth, which makes it a great proposition for career progression. The firm appeals to lawyers from other firms because of its commitment to the support and development of its people, which informs the culture of the firm.
