The role

John Hodge Solicitors are looking to recruit experienced Family Solicitors or Chartered Legal Executives to join and assist in the future development of their long established private practice based across North Somerset and Bristol.

Working with a Family Law team of two lawyers and their support team and dealing with privately funded work only, you will be dealing with a busy caseload including divorce, private children act proceedings, financial and cohabitation matters. You will work closely with the head of department to explore areas of growth, helping them to coach and mentor more junior members of the team, whilst having the opportunity to develop your own caseload and be supported with your own career progression.

John Hodge Solicitors pride themselves on attracting high-calibre candidates to an inclusive working environment where all members of the team are proudly committed and driven by the personable service they offer to each and every one of their clients to establish that long-term relationship. The aim is for all clients to understand the full service the firm has to offer, so they return in the future when they reach that milestone or challenging time in their lives where they may require further advice and support.

A great work-life balance culture, career progression and a competitive rewards package are on offer to the right candidates.

Candidate specification

As an ideal candidate you will be local to the area where you work to incorporate a working knowledge of the area into the service you offer each of your clients. Calm and focused under pressure, you must be a team player with a willingness to get involved in marketing initiatives and business development to raise your profile and that of the Family Law team at John Hodge Solicitors. Good IT and communication skills are also important as is a friendly and approachable persona.
