Join HRS Family Law Solicitors Ltd
HRS Family Law Solicitors have opened 8 offices in 12 years. We plan to open two more by the end of 2020. That is 25 + new jobs in the next business strategy period.
In addition, every firm has an ongoing need for good staff because people move on for a variety of different reasons. Whilst our staff retention is better than most, we at HRS nevertheless are always on the look-out for good staff.
There is no guarantee that at any particular time the firm will be actively hiring staff in one or more of the categories below, however we promise to always consider enquiries, keep applications and curriculum vitae’s on file ready for the next recruitment process, and we will always, without fail, acknowledge your interest.
HRS is well known in the legal profession as a friendly and exciting environment in which to work. Please consider whether you are suitable for one of the roles set out herein;
At HRS we aim to award two training contracts per annum. These contracts are given to the pick of our paralegals, usually after 12 months with the firm. Unlike many firms we pay for the mandatory courses that are undertaken during the two year training contract. Paralegals are expected to undertake a wide variety of duties that include face to face client contact and file running. Under close supervision to ensure high standards and career progression we at HRS consider the paralegal role to be essential to the development of the firm and the high level of customer satisfaction for which we have become known.
If you have completed the Legal Practice Course, or expect to do so shortly, please forward your Curriculum Vitae and covering letter by email to our Practice Manager, Mr William Raine at firstname.lastname@example.org
Qualified Solicitors and Legal Executives are employed in each of our five offices, Birmingham, Bearwood, West Bromwich, Walsall and Dudley. We have Supervisors with at least 10 years post qualification experience and specialist knowledge. They are assisted by Solicitors and fee earners who have chosen to specialise in family law. At HRS we encourage career progression because it is through ongoing skill development and training that we grow as a firm. Solicitors are encouraged to study for and attain membership of Law Society specialist panels such as the Children panel or the Family law panel.
If you have qualified as a Solicitor or Legal executive and have experience of working in Family law or the area of non-contentious law please send your CV to William Raine at the email address above.
This role is key to the ongoing success of the firm. Our business model calls for new offices to be opened in order to service client need in each local area of the West Midlands, and in due course, beyond. Consequently, we have more need than most law firm’s for reception staff. Experienced or not. Keen to learn or leading a team. Either way we would like to hear from you.
At HRS we look for the character and personality in our administration staff to greet and serve our customers. It is about trying to help. If you consider that you fit that profile please let us know and forward your CV to Mr Raine by email.
The reason why HRS is able to offer such good customer service at competitive rates is because we have junior admin / support staff at each of our offices to help the staff in all aspects of delivering an excellent legal service. Be it photocopying, delivering documents or just tidying up after a productive day at work, we are always on the look-out for people hoping to start their career with an interesting and busy role.
Please contact Mr William Raine by email with a CV and a covering letter if you would like to be considered for this role.
At HRS we know just how difficult it can be for young people aspiring to become lawyers, or otherwise, to get a foot on the ladder. We were in your position once too. That’s why we have continuous spaces for work experience at each of our five offices. If you are a school leaver, a student or simply wanting to return to work and feel that you would benefit from some experience then please get in touch. We entertain proposals for a day a week, a block of one, two or more weeks and indeed longer term arrangements.
Please contact William Raine by email as set out on this page and we will try and accommodate your needs. There is always something to do and help is always appreciated.
