Your new company

They are a forward thinking law firm that is among the best in the UK. They pride themselves in providing a supportive environment which cares about its people. They have a large presence in Bath and are currently seeking a Childcare Solicitor to join their ever growing team.

Your new role

You will be joining the Family Team who are specialists in family law and mediation. As a Child Care Solicitor you will be providing sensitive and caring support and advice to clients with family difficulties. You will be based in the Bath office, however you will need your own transport as the workload will cover courts in Bath, Bristol, and across the Wiltshire area.

This role will involve you working with one Children Panel solicitor and a team of support staff.

What you'll need to succeed
