An exciting career opportunity has arisen for a solicitor to run a new family department. Perhaps you are at a point in your career in which this sort of challenge sounds appealing. It may be that you are currently heading up a matrimonial team and feel that your business development ideas are not being supported, or that you want to move from a 'second-in-command' position and strike out on your own. Either way, I have a great option.
My client is a growing practice, based close to Solihull that has built up a decent reputation in the market by focusing on predominantly criminal work. After several years of organic expansion they are now seeking to recruit a family lawyer (Solicitor or Legal Executive) who can establish a matrimonial department for the firm.
You would work closely with the Directors to target privately funded family law work, largely concerning Divorce, Ancillary Relief and private Children Act issues.
There is already a marketing budget in place and social media and other marketing campaigns which are ready to go once the individual has been recruited, so this opportunity is genuinely a ‘team effort’.
You will need to have a proven track record in privately funded work and be able to exhibit business development and marketing ideas that will get the department off the ground. While the Directors will support you in this project, you will be the driving force behind making the department a success.
In return there are excellent financial and career rewards as well as the potential to become more involved role in the direction of the wider business as time progresses.
