Job reference:

Are you a specialist Childcare Solicitor looking to join one of the most successful law firms in South Yorkshire? Are you looking for a firm that is as passionate about this area of law as you are? If so, read on…

Our Legal 500 client has been established in the area for over a century and as a result has an excellent reputation for the services they provide. The firm is dedicated to expansion and over recent years has been significantly investing in its offices and its technology. As a result of this expansion, the firm is now looking for a passionate Child Care Solicitor to join the Family department in Sheffield.

A full and varied caseload awaits the successful candidate, including adoption, care proceedings, special guardianship, child arrangement orders and some child abduction work. The firm also works with a range of clients, including both private and legal aid work, making this a really great opportunity for an individual who can handle a full range of Child Care matters and is committed to providing the best service to clients of all backgrounds. Children Panel Membership would be beneficial for this role.

The department has a great working environment and the team is close-knit, meaning you will be joining a strong and supportive team. A like-minded and hardworking individual, who has the necessary empathy and emotional intelligence, would be a well-suited match for this role.

Our client envisages the successful solicitor to have 3+ years PQE in Family Law, including substantial experience in Child Care. While not essential, being a Children Panel Member would also be beneficial for this role. However, more important than exact PQE levels is a willingness to demonstrate technical ability and the enthusiasm to deliver a high-quality service to all clients. Therefore, our client would be happy to consider applications from candidates who fall outside of this bracket, but can show the relevant skillset and passion necessary for the role.

So if you are a passionate and dedicated Child Care solicitor, looking for the opportunity to join a top regional firm, why not apply?

How to Apply:
If you are interested in this role, or would like to find out more, please contact Andrew Purdy at Sacco Mann or another member of our Private Practice team. Alternatively, if you know of anyone who would be suitable for this role then please let them or us know as we offer a reward for successful referrals. For full terms please see our website.
Please note our advertisements use PQE and salary levels purely as a guide. We are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil this role.
