Family Team  - Private client

An excellent opportunity has arisen for a solicitor (2-7 years pqe) to join the private law family team at Straw and Pearce.  We are a strong and committed team, recognised for our expertise in family work both privately funded and legal aid work.  The position, based at our Loughborough office, will require the successful Applicant to have existing experience in representing and advising clients in private law matters including all forms of relationship breakdown, divorce, civil partnership and financial order applications together with children issues.  The successful candidate will need to be enthusiastic, have a sound legal knowledge together with the relevant advocacy skills.  The opportunity is open to candidates who wish to work full time or part time (no less than 3 days.)  Ability to work as part of a team is essential.

Family Team – Care work

In addition to the above there are two exciting opportunities to join  our experienced care team based at our Loughborough office.  
The first position would suit a recently qualified solicitor who has gained experience in care work already, but wishes to take a step forward in terms of handling a caseload in a supported team environment, but must be confident to undertake their own advocacy. 
The second position is for an experienced family paralegal to assist the existing fee earners with their significant caseloads.  This will include the preparation of bundles, attendance at social services meetings, preparation of court documents, client appointments, sitting behind Counsel  and  the instruction of experts.
Both candidates should have good communication skills, be experienced with legal aid, keen to work as part of a team, reliable and enthusiastic.  There could be some  flexibility in working hours for the right candidates.
