Job vacancy: Family/Child Care Solicitor

Based in the centre of Leeds we are currently seeking an experienced Child Care Solicitor to manage a caseload of interesting and at times, challenging public law cases as well as an element of private law children’s work.

Applicants should be on the Law Society’s Children's Panel or be prepared to work towards membership. They must be well versed in legal aid regulations and will have, or be prepared to develop, a trusted professional relationship and links with CAFCASS and other child care agencies.

Our Family Department is a very busy and fast moving environment, dealing with some of the most vulnerable sectors of the local community. Therefore, excellent advocacy, drafting and interpersonal skills; the highest standard of client care; good organisational skills; and the ability to produce consistently high quality work are all essential qualities. 

We are also LEXCEL accredited and therefore, applicants must be able to demonstrate an efficient, high standard of file management with their caseload.

Applications for this role will be considered on a full or part time basis with the opportunity to work alongside established child care lawyers. 

Please forward your CV with covering letter stating your relevant experience to Caroline Clarke, 7 South Parade, Leeds, LS1 5QE. Email:
