in Locum Vacancies

New Vacancies in Today 30th September 2020

A few new roles in today as follows:

  1. An experienced Residential Conveyancer (Solicitor/Legal Exec) is sought by a solicitors’ firm in the South West – they are looking for 2 days a week at their office in Burnham-On-Sea initially up until Christmas. It would be preferable if the person lives within travelling distance of the area. The position is to start a.s.a.p. The firm require someone who is used to handling their own case load including New Build, Freehold, Leasehold, Land and more complex matters. The job is to help with the more complex work and supervise the department. The 2 days a week are flexible. Hourly rate guide – flexible.
  2. A North London solicitors’ firm are looking for a qualified solicitor to work on a locum basis for 4-5 hours a week supervising a file handler. Not very much detail on this one and not a firm we have worked with before. Hourly rate guide – £35 per hour.
  3. South Wales firm seek a consultant to assist in the development of a contentious probate department. Remote working fine. Monthly retainer a possibility.
  4. Wills & Probate locum solicitor sought by a small Buckinghamshire law firm based in a rural location in a market town. Looking for someone able to manage the small private client department – consisting of a paralegal and a legal secretary – while managing a caseload. The firm are happy to consider someone part-time at 3 or 4 days or full-time hours and happy for it to be 50% working from their office and 50% working remotely from home. They want someone to start in the the next 2 or 3 weeks if possible and ideally to stay until they can find a permanent candidate – so likely to be a 3 month assignment or more if desired.
  5. Two new vacancies have arisen with a South England firm – looking for the following:

1. Residential Conveyancing Locum Solicitor – 4 months.
2. Residential and Commercial Conveyancing Locum Solicitor – 4 months.

Both roles are remote working and full time hours (flexible). The firm could consider 4 days a week. Start date is asap, but the firm will wait for the right person (c.1-2 weeks). There are a couple of prerequisites for this one. 1. We have to be able to provide at least one good reference for you. 2. Your hourly rate will almost certainly need to reflect the fact this is remote working (there is a lot of competition). This means that for the pure residential role the rate is likely to be a maximum of £30 per hour and for the residential/commercial role the rate is likely to be £35 per hour. These figures are intended as a guide only of course.

Any interest in any of the above please let me know.
