We are recruiting: Family Law Solicitor – Child Law

The Law Society Awards 2019We are recruiting: Family Law Solicitor: Child Law

We are recruiting a solicitor who is either a member of the Law Society children panel or who has ambitions to join.

We already have one of the strongest child law teams in the south-west. This includes three current members of the Law Society child law panel and two former members.

We regularly represent parents, children, grandparents and undertake local authority agency work.

Our practice is owned and run by Ian Walker who is one of our children panel members – so you won’t have to worry about our commitment to children law! (In the last 10 years quite a number of firms – some of whom have had large and reputable child law teams – have surrendered their legal aid contracts).

This is a fantastic opportunity with long-term prospects.

Person specification

the successful candidate:

A bit more about the job

Everyone in our team is theoretically based in Honiton office – which is the central location in our office network. This means they need to come into the office at least once a week so that they are fully part of the team (no competing and divisive branch cultures for us). However, there is very ample scope for flexible working.

Being based in Honiton has advantages. Our office is next to the A30 and has ample free parking. It is a 30 minute drive to central Taunton and to central Exeter. It is 45 minutes to Yeovil and under an hour to Plymouth. This means our office is centrally located between the courts that we cover. Coming into the office means avoiding commuter traffic.

Ideally the successful candidate will help develop our Somerset work in Taunton and Yeovil family courts – but we are happy to consider applicants who are located elsewhere – our practice is very much built around its team.
