Job description

This is an exciting opportunity for an experienced Private Client Solicitor with 5 years' PQE + to join a leading regional firm and to become an integral part of a thriving and supportive team,  helping to support the ongoing growth and development of the department's activities and contribute to the  growth of client work and fee income. 


This senior role will see you exposed to high quality work and will allow an ambitious and motivated Solicitor genuine career progression and the opportunity to grow an exciting client portfolio.


Working out of the firm's Exeter office in a full time and permanent capacity, this role would be ideally suited to an individual with a proven track record of producing quality private client work and who is able to demonstrate a degree of self-management, dealing with a busy caseload confidently and with minimal supervision.


Happy to be self-managing and produce most of your own documentation via the firm's case management system, you'll need to be IT literate (preferably with experience of using a case management system).

Undertaking a varied and interesting caseload, you will be preparing and registering LPAs, providing advice on inheritance tax planning, advising on care fees/elderly client issues, estate administration and advising and preparing Wills and Codicils plus any other private client matters as required.

Business development experience is essential as is the ability to quickly and effectively form excellent working relationships with both clients and colleagues.

A committed team player, you will be motivated, flexible and approachable and will flourish in a team environment; this is a close knit team within a firm who actively promote a team ethos so it is vital that you are personable and friendly to be a good fit.


With first class written and verbal communication skills, you will be highly organised, able to make decisions on a daily basis, manage a busy workload and deal with changing priorities effectively and professionally.


We would love to hear from you if you feel that you could fulfil the criteria of this exciting role.  Please do get in touch in complete confidence to find out more.
