Private Client Solicitor is required by a busy and highly-regarded multi-service Law Firm in Barrow-in-Furness.

The practice is part of a Group which is an established, highly reputable firm offering comprehensive legal, financial and property services through their team of experienced and qualified professionals.  Based in Barrow-in-Furness and with five offices across the Furness Peninsular and South Lakes, they are one of the largest independent solicitors, estate agents and financial service providers in the area.  Due to expansion, they are looking to recruit a Private Client Solicitor.

You will have the ability to work from home as much as is manageable from a client and a business point of view. This will be flexible but probably 3 days per week at a maximum to ensure good team integration and you will need to see clients face to face.

The renowned firm has a big client workload and you will need to be able to take on clients immediately.

In return, a competitive salary and benefits package is on offer, commensurate with experience and the opportunity to join a progressive firm whilst living and working within the South Lakes and Furness Peninsular.
