We are a well-established friendly solicitors’ firm based in one of the most sought-after locations in York’s city centre and are looking for a full or part time business manager to join our successful team. We are a niche Property and Life Planning practice that has grown considerably over the last few years and working with us in York offers a great work/life balance in a friendly, fully supported, team orientated environment.  If you have an eye for detail, like organising, managing and generally being busy then this job could be right for you.


Our preferred candidate will have 5 years + broad based experience of:

  • Working in a busy office environment undertaking a variety of office management work.
  • Managing risk and compliance in a regulated environment.
  • Recruiting and organising training for staff.
  • Budgeting and financial reporting.
  • IT and case management – working closely with outside support.
  • Marketing and business development.

A full job description is available on request.


The business has been managed historically by the Directors and accounts office personnel but now requires a dedicated manager to take on a variety of important  tasks.  You will work closely with our Accounts team and the Directors.


  • A competitive salary.
  • A generous bonus scheme.
  • A Workplace pension scheme.
  • Organised social and team events.
  • Genuine career prospects.
  • Flexible working.


We are currently offering a one-off lump sum payment to any successful candidate who approaches us directly (not through a recruitment agent or third party either now or previously) and whom we subsequently employ.  The payment is discretionary and based upon a proportion of the agreed salary and would be paid upon completion of a 3 month probation period with us.  We reserve the right to request the return of a proportion of the payment to us if the successful candidate chooses to give notice within 12 months of their start date (save in the case of exceptional circumstances/illness etc).
