Our client is private equity backed business that is growing at a phenomenal rate. They are due to double in size in the next 12 months. They now have need to recruit an in-house solicitor to manage a team of 5 'litigation focused' paralegals.
The team predominantly review and approve high volume applications to transfer CCJs to the High Court for enforcement. The role will manage the team on a daily basis, set targets and tasks as appropriate as well as oversee and monitor performance of workflow to ensure priorities are dealt with efficiently and effectively in line with any applicable targets and quality standards agreed with clients.
Ideally you will be a qualified solicitor (we would also consider a Legal Executive or Paralegal) with experience of handling your own caseload in debt recovery, general litigation or contentious property. It is essential you have experience of management as it is a key aspect of this role.
You will be an outstanding communicator, with the skills and enthusiasm to build effective relationships and gain credibility across the business.
The role offers the ability to work flexibly to suit the individual.
