Criminal Law Solicitor
Your new company
A small but established Criminal and Litigation practice in Derry are seeking to recruit an ambitious Criminal Law Solicitor into their successful, growing practice. They are open on PQE level provided the solicitor has a solid understanding and previous experience of criminal law matters.
Your new Role
You will be expected to handle a range of magistrates court, high court and county court cases, which may involve some regional travel. You will also be expected to participate in the office PACE rota which will require occasional anti-social hours working, therefore flexibility is essential.
This is an opportunity to join a successful young practice in a supportive learning environment for a relatively recently qualified solicitor. Or alternatively, an opportunity for an experienced practitioner to come in and put their stamp on the department, providing leadership and mentoring to trainees and paralegals in return for clear career progression.
There is a strong body of work and regular clients in place for you to immediately take carriage of.
All about you
Ideally, you will have at least 2-4 years PQE though other levels will be considered and salary offered that is commensurate with experience. You will thrive in a small practice environment, shared open office space and in an environment that rewards consistent performance and high client care standards.
Access to a vehicle is desirable as is previous court experience.
