Are you looking for a change of scenery to a high street firm in a small town? We may be the answer! Busy West Lothian firm with interesting and varied workload has a vacancy for a solicitor with conveyancing and private client experience

Job Description

Due to a busy workload and the forthcoming temporary absence of a partner, we have a current vacancy for a reliable, forward looking solicitor.  We have two well established offices in West Lothian, one in Armadale, the other in Bo'ness and are in the fortunate position that our workload predominantly comes to us organically, from our many repeat existing clients and their referrals.

As we are a smaller high street firm, the work which you will be undertaking will be varied and, in normal times, no two days are likely to be the same.  We have a small, but very experienced team here, so there is always someone on hand with whom to discuss ideas and transaction difficulties.

We deal with most areas of legal work including residential and general conveyancing, executries, Wills, Powers of Attorney's, general private client issues through to more complex property and commercial transactions, but we do not undertake any court work.

The workload which you will be dealing with will be varied, to include property purchases & sales, Wills, Powers of Attorney, general private client work and so on.

We would like you to have drive and be able to work under your own initiative but also be happy to ask for advice or help when required, to have good drafting skills and conveyancing & appropriate general legal experience

We are flexible in our requirements and a recently qualified solicitor - or perhaps someone looking for part time work or to return to work - would be very welcome.

Ideally we would like someone to join us for the long term.  We have committed and settled partners and staff within our offices who work well together and would be keen for a like minded individual to join us.

As a small, very busy firm looking towards the future, we are always keen to move our business forward and even if you feel that your experience may not be exactly what we're looking for please do send in your CV and information, as we may be able to adapt our requirements to your experience.

We are more than happy to receive current applications from those who have applied to us for previous vacancies.

Please apply in writing, with the usual relevant information, to:

Mrs Caralyn Rowe, Practice Manager, Sneddons SSC, 47/49 West Main Street, Armadale, West Lothian EH48 3PZ

Alternatively, you can send us your CV via email  by clicking the 'Apply' button below.
