Are you an enthusiastic and driven legal assistant, with the desire to create a successful career within law?

Do you want to be part of a dynamic and ever-expanding professional services firm?

Would you thrive in a role that has ever-shifting priorities on a daily basis?

We have an exciting permanent opportunity for an ambitious legal assistant to join a successful law firm based in stunning Birmingham City Centre offices.

Working within this firm’s Defendant Insurance department as a litigation legal assistant, you will be assisting solicitors and partners with the production of high quality legal services to a variety of clients, across a broad range of defendant insurance work. You will be the individual who handles all liability, injury and motor claims, as well as dealing with clients and third parties in a professional and polite manner, maintaining close and regular contact. Alongside these duties, you will also be tasked with maintaining good database and file management, as well as handling all photocopying, scanning and general administrative duties on a regular basis.

You will be responsible for receiving inbound telephone calls and transferring them to the relevant people, as well as supporting and assisting senior fee earners and partners in the delivery of service level agreements, whenever necessary. You will also be involved with the assisting of the promotional and business development activity for the firm. This role may also see you conducting legal research on a regular basis.

For this exciting opportunity, you will need to have extensive experience in a similar environment, preferably within contentious law – ideally from an insurance or motor claims setting. Education to a high level is advantageous and experience of using a case management system is absolutely vital. You will need to be a bright, highly enthusiastic person with a real “can do” attitude, with an innate willingness to assist in any task that is asked of you. You will need to have a real hunger to carve out a career for yourself within law, and want to work for an ever-growing and prestigious firm.

In return, you will receive an excellent salary and benefits package, and you will receive the opportunity to further your career within an innovative and successful professional services firm that will strive to help you further your ambitions.
