Employment Paralegal

Employment Paralegal wanted for an excellent opportunity with a Legal 500 firm based in Birmingham. Salary is negotiable depending on experience.

My client is a successful and well established medium sized Legal 500 private practice with an excellent reputation in the marketplace. Working for this forward thinking firm there is a pleasant working environment, excellent benefits along with opportunities for progression and development.

They are looking to recruit an Employment Paralegal to handle their own caseload of mainly Claimant files with the support of counsel. The successful individual will be dealing with new enquiries, assisting clients with pre-issue work, preparing Tribunal cases including drafting documents, liaising with clients, preparing trial bundles and conducting research.

The successful candidate will be required to have excellent technical skills in both Claimant and Respondent work for individuals and companies. Advocacy would be an advantage when applying for this role, as would someone who can develop their own caseload (you will be given an existing caseload on joining) so marketing and business development experience will be an advantage also. In addition, you must have strong academics and be commercially focused.

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a leading law who offer genuine progression opportunities for their Employment Paralegals. Don't miss out shortlisting now!!!!
