Job Description

We are working in unusual circumstances and we appreciate that this is an unsettling time for all employees and employers. We have always believed in absolute transparency and as such we want to be clear about the status of vacancies. Some of the roles we have been working on have only very recently been placed on hold, whereas some are still live and the client has confirmed that we are to continue with our search. We will therefore indicate the status of each role clearly so that applicants are clear on the position.  

This role is on HOLD but we still invite a conversation with candidates in advance of it becoming live in the future

Errington Legal have an exciting opportunity for a Solicitor with Court of Protection experience to join a growing team in a highly rewarding area of work.

Reporting to the Head of Department you will assist with a caseload of COP and attorneyship matters, acting as an integral part of the COP team.

You should have good working knowedge of case management systems and will be encouraged to further your development of technical and non-technical skills.

The successful candidate will need to be skilled in building relationships with clients and colleagues alike and will have proven results in supporting business development initiatives across a team or firm.

At a difficult time, approaching qualification and looking for an NQ role, Errington Legal made contact with me and made the whole process so much easier and less daunting. Both Eleanor and Ellie were fantastic, helping me to prepare my CV, target the right the firms and provide great advice and assistance heading into the interviews. Without Errington Legal’s knowledge of the legal jobs market and strong relationships with local firms, I would not have been able to secure the role that I did. I can’t recommend them enough!
