Child Care Solicitor - Greater Manchester
Due to growth our client is seeking to appoint a child care solicitor into their practice. This is an excellent opportunity for a NQ+PQE solicitor to work alongside a highly respected Child Panel member solicitor. The work is varied but demanding and you will need to be capable of working relatively autonomously but there will be support and training as required. The majority of the work emanates from guardian instructions but some work is parent focussed. This is the ideal role for a recently qualified solicitor who is seeking to specialise in this area of work, that has the passion and enthusiasm but empathy and understanding required to handle this sensitive area of work.
As the appointed child care solicitor you will have experience within your training contract and ideally a degree of post qualification experience, you will have a good grounding in Children Act work, the Legal Aid portal and public law proceedings. You will be given the opportunity to do your own advocacy in addition to running your own caseload with supervision.
Our client has a very high reputation for this area and the majority of work comes into the practice through recommendations and referrals. A tight knit but very friendly and supportive working environment that will encourage you to thrive in your role. This is a genuine career making opportunity for someone who is passionate about this area of work.
