2. Defendant Personal Injury Lawyer
A new vacancy has arisen with a local authority based in Winchester (no prizes for guessing which one!) as follows: they are looking for locum cover for 3 months, although potentially this could be up to 12 months if their fee earner doesn’t return on a Defendant caseload of FT/MT PI claims – including catastrophic injury claims. You will be working in the highways litigation team of the council’s inhouse legal practice.

3. Wills & Probate Solicitor
A new vacancy has arisen with a small 300 year old law firm based in Morpeth, Northumberland. Nearest train station is Morpeth – about 500 metres from the offices. The firm are looking for the following:
1. A locum wills & probate solicitor or lawyer to join them on a full or part time basis – 3 days per week would be fine. Start date would be as soon as you are able.
2. A permanent wills & probate solicitor or lawyer – full or part time – someone interested in living and working in the town. Start date flexible to suit.
Morpeth is situated in a very nice area of the country – it is a small market town close to the coast but also Newcastle.

Any interest in any of the above please let me know.
