• champion client focus and the delivery of outstanding service
• identify areas for continuous improvement and help to positively implement change in the team and the wider department

This role would suit people who have

• excellent probate technical knowledge, with the ability to understand legal issues and resolve them by providing expert support
• the ability to support, mentor and develop colleagues to improve their performance
• a passion for delivering outstanding client service
• strong analytical skills with the ability to use management information (MI) effectively

Our legal team is the number one market leader in probate. Here you’ll do work that matters. Co-op is an organisation with a purpose beyond profit, and by contributing to our success you’ll help us to realise our vision of co-operating for a fairer world. 
You’ll also get a package that includes:
• an annual bonus scheme (dependent on personal and business performance)
• private health cover for you as an individual
• a pension with up to 10% employer contributions
• 28 days holiday (rising to 32 in line with service)
• wellbeing benefits to support your physical financial and mental health
• coaching, training, and support such as study leave, to help you develop your skills and progress your career
• discounts on Co-op products and services
