Private Client Trainee

Earl & Crocker

Private Client Trainee

Earl and Crocker are seeking a Private Client trainee who will be able to run their own caseload including Wills, Probate and LPA’s for a varied client base. As the firm and the department expands, the firm are looking for the right person to train to achieve further legal qualifications.

The successful candidate must have: –

  • Law degree or CILEX equivalent having completed a module in the law of Wills and succession/Trusts
  • Driving license and their own car

The successful candidate must be: –

  • Friendly and approachable
  • Always have client’s satisfaction in mind
  • Be innovative and have initiative
  • Work well within a small firm to become part of a team

Although our ideal candidate will have some knowledge of Wills and probate law, training will be provided by our Head of Department who has over 15 years working in this area.

The right candidate will be required to meet with clients, advise and assist in the drafting of Wills, Lasting Powers of Attorney, Trusts and Probate and therefore excellent communication, organisation and client care skills are essential. Many of the clients within this department are elderly and so the right candidate must be able to connect with different people on different levels, taking into account the client’s needs and vulnerabilities.

There are opportunities within the firm for the right candidate to undertake additional qualifications including legal apprenticeships for solicitor or legal executive.

Earl & Crocker Solicitors are an award winning firm having won the Cornwall Law Society’s ‘Small Firm of the Year’ award in 2023 and has a reputation for providing an approachable service to their clients. The firm prides itself on being a traditional high street solicitors firm with modern values.

Despite being a small firm, Earl & Crocker Solicitors are based in Liskeard and have 2 other offices in Looe and Callington and therefore it is essential the candidate can travel between the offices and to home appointments.
