Senior Associate, Charity Team

Our charity law work currently forms the largest part of our operations and has seen some of the greatest growth in demand for our services. We are looking for an experienced and gospel-driven lawyer who can help us meet that demand, and continue to do so with the same high-quality, Christ-centred legal expertise that sets us apart from other law firms. We are seeking an individual who is passionate about using their legal expertise to help Christian organisations be more effective in serving Christ.

As Senior Associate, you will support the Head of Charities in leading our largest team in delivering excellent service to a growing and richly diverse client base. You will also manage your own varied and deeply rewarding caseload, directly advancing the gospel through your Christ-centred legal expertise.

This is a full-time position based either from our Market Harborough office in Leicestershire or from home. It would suit a qualified solicitor with 4+ years PQE who has expertise in providing charity law advice to clients or in acting as an in-house adviser to charities. You will supervise some other members of the team, and will report directly to the head of the charity team. The ideal candidate will have a good general understanding of the kinds of legal issues that Christian organisations and churches are likely to face, and also some experience of supervising or mentoring others

 

Practice Manager
