General Practice Solicitor Locum in Kent

A general practice solicitor locum sought ideally from the 3rd April (but OK from as soon as you are able) through to the 4th May but with a possibility of further work if both sides are keen. Small friendly practice based in Sittingbourne, Kent ME10. We have had a locum at the firm in recent times who has spoken very highly of them (he is not available due to permanent work elsewhere). The firm is ideally looking for a fairly ‘general’ solicitor who can oversee/assist the senior partner with his work when required, not least because the partner is due to be away at various points in April. May be an option to work part time if needs be.

Work at the practice is as follows: all aspects of property (residential and commercial) including commercial leasehold, wills, probate, powers of attorney, general commercial work and general non-contentious advice and assistance. They also deal with insolvency work, some litigation and some more specialised areas, but the locum would not necessarily have to cover those areas too – it is the areas listed in the previous sentence that need to be covered.

The main focus of work is property and private client.

Any interest please let me know. It is getting harder to source general practice candidates as the years progres…
