You will be tasked with handling a broad variety of wills, estates and trusts on behalf of high net worth clients which will include trust work, will drafting and estate administration. You will not simply deal with relatively straight forward matters as the majority of work will comprise complex subject matter such as dealing with high value complicated financial structures.

As a senior member of the team you will be expected to be a technical referral point to more junior members and in due course there is scope for you to progress within the firm's structure.

Ideally you will be a solicitor with a minimum of 3 years' PQE or you will be a Legal Executive with equivalent experience. You will have exceptional client care skills and you will be perfectly comfortable dealing with individuals and families who are on a sound financial footing.

This is not limited to being an office based role and there will be an abundance of opportunities for face to face client engagement both within and out of the office.

Given the firms' standing in the market you will naturally receive a competitive salary and benefits package which includes a substantial holiday allowance of 27 days with the option to carry some entitlement over, as well as private healthcare and medical insurance and a host of other benefits.
