Whether you wish to join our administrative department as a receptionist, typist or administration clerk or join the legal staff as a trainee solicitor or caseworker, life at Fawcett & Pattni Solicitors will be hard work but rewarding.

All vacant positions will be advertised on this page as more staff become necessary to drive our expansion.

Applicants must already be familiar with the basic concepts of family law and practice.

Applicants should already have sufficient knowledge to communicate with clients and advise them adequately on less complex aspects of family law.
