You will be encouraged to build upon existing relationships with an impressive range of clients many of which are long standing clients or recommended to the firm as a result of the quality of service which is technically strong but also very commercial and delivered in a very individual way.
You will be encouraged to get involved with the business development and marketing of the firm and the role will bridge the gap between junior people within the team and the partners, giving you the opportunity to take on a mentoring and support role.

The firm has a clear progression structure and there will be nothing standing in the way of your progression through this, in fact it will be actively encouraged.
Our client is ideally looking for someone who is at least 2 5 years PQE, however this level of experience has been given as an approximate guide for applicants and our client is happy to consider the applications of candidates who fall outside of this level but who have the relevant knowledge/experience, together with the enthusiasm for this particular role.


Benefits
You will be joining a friendly and supportive team. The firm has a great working environment and really focuses on its employees.
The back office support is second to none.
Whilst not being one of this national firms in Leeds this firm offers career opportunity, the opportunity to build you name within the market and much more of a work life balance.
