The Role

Do you have debt collection experience and are you looking for your next role? Can you demonstrate that you take ownership, can work autonomously and make decisions? Do you want to work for the UK's most successful legal collections and recoveries business and be well rewarded for the work that you do?

Ascent, one of the UK's largest and foremost law firms is currently looking to recruit a highly skilled Paralegal within their specialist debt recovery agency. Offering a competitive salary plus benefits including pension, health insurance and plenty more, this is a fantastic opportunity to develop your career as part of the UK's most successful and significant firm in the legal collections and recoveries marketplace.

The Role

This is a busy, demanding, yet highly rewarding role, where duties are diverse and no two days are the same. You would proactively progress cases, undertaking both complex admin work and supporting with debt recovery case-handling duties on behalf of clients. Tasks will include compiling witness statements, completing court documentation and handling client queries via email or telephone. Ensuring all relevant processes and procedures are followed and that all work undertaken is in line with service level agreements.

The Candidate

The role will suit an adaptable, reliable and self-motived individual with legal admin experience, degree or equivalent experience. LPC/FILEX qualified (desirable). Commercial litigation experience and knowledge of CPR roles will be required, while a background working in a legal capacity within a financial services environment would be an advantage.

You will be a well organised administrator, able to multitask and prioritise a workload effectively, with strong communication skills plus excellent attention to detail. You'll be experienced in following set guidelines and processes, but with the ability and confidence to use your own judgement where required.

The Benefits

In addition to your basic salary we have a competitive benefits package including pension, critical illness cover, health cash plan, death in service, discounted legal services, 22 days hols (this increases with length of service), discounted online shopping, discounted gym memberships and season ticket loans.

Ascent Performance Limited is part of the Irwin Mitchell group of companies and was the first debt collection agency to be granted ABS status meaning that we are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and well as being regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
