in Locum Vacancies

Family Solicitor in Wakefield, West Yorkshire

A new locum vacancy has arisen with a medium sized multi-office solicitors firm based in West Yorkshire. Established for over 50 years, they have offices across the region. The firm are looking for someone for 4 days a week for 4 weeks starting on Tuesday (30th May) next week or as soon as possible after this.

They are looking for a permanent member of staff to join their family team in Wakefield and urgently need locum cover in the interim until they recruit – have been let down by someone at the last minute apparently. Happy to look at both Family Solicitors and Legal Executives with experience of working with private paying and publicly funded clients and dealing with financial related matters.

Ancillary relief seems to be a big part of the role. Description of the work is as follows: you will be dealing with work such as divorce and separation, financial issues arising out of family breakdowns cases as well as children act and civil partnership matters.  Other issues such as pre-nuptial agreements, separation agreements, cohabitee agreements, domestic violence and family protection injunctions will also be covered.

There will also be departmental paralegal and secretarial assistance however as this is a fairly autonomous role you will be expected to deal with most tasks with limited supervision.

If you are interested please let me know.
