We’re committed to providing an exceptional client experience and the opportunity to build a rewarding career with us. In this role, you’ll manage a caseload of 50-60 probate cases from start to finish, with a client-focussed approach to targets.

•    engage with clients mainly by telephone and email
•    work collaboratively with expert support from the team to continually develop your legal skills, administrative support will also be provided at certain case levels
•    use your legal knowledge to mentor more junior members of the team

This role would suit people who have

•    qualified as a solicitor or legal executive in private practice (CILEX or STEP qualification), or have the equivalent experience in probate law
•    the ability to use your initiative and effectively prioritise your work
•    a client-focused approach with the ability to build positive relationships in a remote setting

Our legal team is the number one market leader in probate. Here you’ll do work that matters. Co-op is an organisation with a purpose beyond profit, and by contributing to our success you’ll help us to realise our vision of co-operating for a fairer world. 

You’ll also get a package that includes:

• a pension with up to 10% employer contributions
• 28 days holiday (rising to 32 in line with service)
• wellbeing benefits to support your physical financial and mental health
• coaching, training, and support such as study leave, to help you develop your skills and progress your career

We aim to build an inclusive environment, where everyone can contribute their best work and develop to their full potential.
