The successful candidate will be the sole Family Fee Earner within the office so our client is keen to consider applications from confident, self starter candidates who have the ability and determination to establish a profitable family based caseload and presence.
This is a full time and permanent position. Working hours are 9am-5.30pm.

You’ll then progress to the Yeovil Office where you will be the sole Family fee earner and will be required to market yourself and the business in order to establish a profitable caseload and presence.

You will be self supportive, undertaking the majority of your own administration with some support provided remotely from the Taunton team.

With an organised approach and as a self starter you would build the caseload to a point where the role can be sustained. It goes without saying Client awareness is essential whilst consistently delivering a first class service.
