Job Description

SKO is looking for a qualified solicitor with a minimum of 2 years post qualifying experience to join our team from August for a fixed term period of 15 months.  

We are looking for an individual with integrity, sensitivity and empathy, who is comfortable working both independently and as part of a close knit team in complex or difficult cases.  

The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate:

  • sound knowledge of family law
  • the ability to deliver first class advice to clients in a sensitive, clear, confident and business-like manner
  • a flexible approach to meeting client demands and priorities
  • a commitment to excellence in client service
  • strong written and oral communication skills
  • excellent attention to detail        

The role will involve a balance of giving advice on the full range of family law issues, working with a degree of autonomy, and some elements of working as part of team giving advice in more complex family law cases, including high value financial provision cases and cases where there are jurisdictional elements involved. 

We are an equal opportunities employer and recruit the best possible people, regardless of their age, gender, race, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief. We welcome applications from candidates looking for a full time position or a part time position based on a minimum of two-thirds of full time, subject always to our overriding commitment to providing excellent client service on a flexible basis.

SKO is Scotland’s largest niche family firm, top ranked in both Chambers & Partners and the Legal 500.  We are focused solely on meeting the needs of clients accessing Scots Family Law advice.  We advise individuals and other lawyers in the UK and abroad.  As well as having solicitors accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as specialists in family law, child law and as family mediators we have more family arbitrators than any other firm and knowledgeable and experienced support staff.  We are committed to and enthusiastic about what we do and we expect anyone joining our team to share that commitment and enthusiasm.
