A highly regarded multi-office Law Firm in Devon is seeking a Family Locum Solicitor to provide assistance to their team.

Details of the Role:-
- The work involves all disputes arising from family or couple breakdown including:-
* Divorce/Civil Partnership Dissolution
* Cohabitation Agreements/Disputes
* Pre-nuptial Agreements
* Finance and Property
* Children
* Child Care
* Domestic Violence/Abuse
- The caseload consists largely of Private Family matters but there may be some Legal Aid work. Those without Legal Aid experience should still apply as this work may be able to be transferred to another fee earner to deal with internally.
- Secretarial support available

The Ideal Candidate:-
- Will be a qualified Solicitor or Legal Executive with 5 plus year's PQE (although those qualified by experience should still apply)
- Will be comfortable being the only fee earner doing Family Law work in the office and therefore not require support/supervision
- Will be available from November on an ongoing basis for an initial 3 month contract (the assistance is required due to a recruitment gap)

If you have experience in Mediation or are on the Children's Panel that would be beneficial, but not essential.

As this cover is required to cover whilst the firm seeks a new permanent member of staff, there is every chance that for the right candidate this position could turn into a permanent contract.

Full time and part time applications will be considered, as well as flexibility with working hours should this be required. Badenoch & Clark is acting as an Employment Business in relation to this vacancy. Badenoch & Clark is an Equal Opportunity Employer and a registered Disability Symbol User.
