Tax, Trusts and Succession Head of Trusts and Probate
We have a fantastic opportunity for an experienced trust manager to join as Head of our Trusts and Probate team (“T&P”). Trust and estate administration is carried out across all three of the firm’s UK offices in London, Cheltenham and Guildford but it is anticipated that the successful candidate will be based in our London office.
Trust administration and probate work is seen as a critically important part of the firm’s Tax Trusts and Succession Group (“TT&S”). TT&S is part of the firm’s Private Client Division, which incorporates Family and Private Client Property, as well as TT&S itself.
TT&S is the firm’s largest practice group by turnover (2016/17: £20.5m) and the T&P team makes up over 30% of the group’s turnover. Many of the group’s longest-standing and most important client relationships lie within the T&P team.
The role will suit someone who has a strong track record of administering a wide range of trusts and has experience of managing a team of people. The candidate will not necessarily have had experience in dealing with probate and estate administration but, in light of the fact that some members of the T&P team carry out both trust administration and probate work, they will be expected to have the people skills and management experience needed to manage the T&P team as a whole.
