Private Client – Newly Qualified Solicitor

We have a fantastic opportunity for a Newly Qualified Solicitor to join our Wills Probate & Trusts Team here at Samuel Phillips Law!

You will have had significant experience during your training contract in this area of law,  in particular drafting Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney, and have a strong desire to develop your knowledge and skills in all aspects of private client work, including trusts.

We have a culture of collaborative working within our firm, with many teams working together on client matters and projects.  We encourage and support our lawyers to develop their commercial acumen and skills too, so any previous experience of working in roles outside of law may be helpful too.

Samuel Phillips Law is based on the prestigious and historic Grey Street in Newcastle upon Tyne.  We are close to great public transport links and have a discounted car parking arrangement locally.  We have bright, modern and well thought out office space, with current technology.  Our support team are gold standard and we have a very collegiate and supportive culture.

We would really like to hear from you if you are about to qualify, or recently qualified and the opportunity to work in a forward thinking and ambitious firm excites you.

To be considered, please contact our CEO Sharon Boyd in the first instance with your CV and a covering email by no later than noon on Monday 5th July 2021.
