Family / Matrimonial Solicitor – Manchester


Family Solicitor – This is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the dominant family law teams in Manchester and, indeed, throughout the North West. They are ideally looking for a solicitor with 1-6 PQE, who will be offered the opportunity of developing their own caseload and contacts in the market, whilst assisting the more senior fee earners in the department. This role truly offers the right applicant the chance to build an exciting career with an unrivalled, highly distinguished team.


  • Job title: Family Solicitor 1-6 PQE
  • Location: Manchester
  • Salary: £35,000 – £55,000 (Salary may be exceeded depending on experience)
  • Reports to: Partner – Head of Department
  • Previous Experience: Ideally 1-6 PQE – applicants should demonstrate a strong background in a broad range of matrimonial law matters.


This is a department which advises on a range of family matters including divorce, civil partnerships and all types of matrimonial dispute resolution including domestic violence. The team offers a full spectrum of mediation services as well as advisory services including financial settlements and prenuptial agreements. They also have a highly regarded specialism for child law.

In terms of their client base, they have a well-established network and presence in the North West, advising a range of clients including high net worth individuals in relation to high-value settlements. It is also worth noting that the team has a very strong tie-in with the wider private client group with whom it works very closely.

The Partners are recognised in the legal press and the department itself has a reputation for operating at the very cutting edge of this discipline.


Technical excellence is highly important. Candidates must be able to demonstrate a strong background in matrimonial work from a reputable practice. However, our client is also looking for commercial and practical lawyers who know how to achieve the best commercial solution for their client.

Applicants should also be able to demonstrate resilience and be able to work calmly and objectively under pressure. Cultural fit is also highly important. This is a well-established team and the firm wishes to recruit a determined team player who has the right calm, conscientious and practical approach to their work which reflects that of the department.


For anyone looking to take a real step up in their family law career, this has to be one of the best opportunities to do just that.

The atmosphere of the firm is friendly and supportive. Ongoing training is excellent and those who excel have every chance to progress and develop. What is more the team (as well as the firm as a whole) has a very cohesive and social element, not just in terms of events, but ensuring they have a positive impact in the community.

The salary package is excellent with a full suite of benefits.
