in Locum Vacancies

Conveyancing – Remote Maternity Cover and Family -Law – Remote Maternity Cover

Conveyancing – Remote Working Locum

A new vacancy has arisen with a consultant operating via one of the larger law firms and handling residential conveyancing. In the strange world of work we currently live in, the consultant is wanting to take some maternity leave, but as she is self-employed as part of this larger firm, she needs to find and pay a locum to cover her caseload.

Starting immediately, you would have the benefit of an assistant as well to help, but you would be working completely remotely and the consultant thinks this is a full time requirement. I suspect the consultant may decide on slightly less hours over the week to keep it affordable.

Duration – likely to be a minimum of 3 months and more likely to be 6-9 months.

Hourly rate – entirely negotiable, but I suspect its highly likely this role is not going to go higher than £30 per hour and anything below this would be more closely considered I suspect.

Hampshire Family Locum – 12 months

We sent out a family locum role – 12 months with a minimum requirement of at least some office time with the Hampshire firm. The firm have now indicated that they will accept a fully remote working family lawyer to cover the role, so you will not need to attend their offices during the assignment.

This is a specialist family law firm with a small team of lawyers, one of whom is going off on maternity leave. The firm are in need of a family solicitor for maternity cover starting at the end of April.

12 months duration.

The firm are looking for either full time or part time – they don’t mind which – although there is a lot of work. Privately funded work – financial remedy, children act and divorce.
