Family Law Solicitor 2+ years qualified

TC Young

TC Young are looking to recruit an experienced family law solicitor for our Edinburgh office. The successful candidate will report to the family partners in Edinburgh, and due to the volume of work within the department there will be a requirement to manage their own caseload. This role is ideally full-time but consideration may be given to exceptional candidates who are interested in working part time, with a minimum of 25 hours per week being worked.

What you can expect … at TC Young we are proud to be a friendly firm that cares passionately about our staff. The partners feel strongly that it is beneficial when people enjoy their job and work hard to ensure they do. We have several staff members who joined us over 30 years ago; who would confirm they stay with us because they like their job and the environment they work in and feel supported.

What we are looking for …
• a minimum of 2 years (post-qualifying) family experience
• good working knowledge of SLAB
• someone with good research skills

The successful candidate must:
• Be passionate about this area of law,
• Bring with them civil court and family law experience.
• Be capable of ‘hitting the ground running’
• Be comfortable and able to work under pressure.
• Be well organised with the ability to plan personal work to meet competing deadlines (with
limited supervision).

Reliable with excellent attention to detail, you will be working in a small team with extensive client contact. Strong communication skills are essential, with the ability to quickly understand a client’s requirements and tailor advice accordingly. It is also hoped that the individual will be keen to mentor junior members of staff.

In return, we offer: a friendly down to earth office, structured training, a commitment to a good work-life balance and 33 days (FTE) holiday. The firm feel it is mutually beneficial that people enjoy their job and work hard to ensure they do. This is an excellent opportunity to join a busy family law department.
