Jobs for Solicitors & Legal Executives

A law firm is only as good as the lawyers who work for it. A client’s perception of a legal practice will largely be based on their experiences of the lawyer they last dealt with. For a modern law firm to be successful it is essential to attract the very best lawyers. So, if you are offering us the best legal talent going, speak to us about what we can offer you?

A modern, approachable firm

This isn’t a meaningless marketing slogan; it’s genuine. The partners are not stuffy and full of their own self importance (well most of them aren’t), and the firm is not stuck in the last century. We are a forward looking practice. We embrace new technology; though not slavishly. We have a modern outlook and a modern philosophy. Our lawyers are accessible and approachable whilst still remaining professional.

Maintaining your balance

We are more committed than most to encouraging staff to strike the right life/work balance. Above all, we subscribe to the “give ‘n’ take” approach to staff relations. For instance, if we are handling a large deal or an important piece of litigation then we appreciate it when our lawyers go the extra mile. Similarly, if it’s a warm summer’s afternoon and the surfs up then no one will be complaining when that lawyer is seen exiting the building, board in hand.

Work and live in a beautiful part of the country

With offices in five locations throughout Devon and Somerset there’s something to suit everyone’s tastes in this Legal 500 recommended firm. From the surfing centre of Braunton to South Molton, the “Gateway to Exmoor”; and from Charles Kingsley’s “Little White Town” of Bideford to the home of cider making in Taunton, we can offer it all; not forgetting Barnstaple with its unsurpassed access to the most beautiful moorland and coastline in Britain. You might accuse us of being a little biased, but anyone who lives here is bound to be.

A commitment to development

We encourage our lawyers to develop specific practice areas. The beauty of a firm like ours is that all kinds of opportunities exist for ambitious, motivated and forward thinking men and women; future partners of Slee Blackwell. We want you to become one of the best lawyers in your chosen field and you will be given all available support to achieve that goal, from legal training through to marketing. Our reputation is built on your reputation. We want you to succeed in developing your name and, in the process, developing the practice.
