Support Staff

The firm has ongoing requirements for staff to assist our solicitors and paralegals. Our requirement is for good GCSE or vocational training qualifications, competent keyboard skills, preferably "A" levels or equivalent and perhaps even a degree. Support staff with the requisite skills, experience, qualifications and intellect may be able to move to paralegal posts. From time to time we have accounts, reception and other specialist requirements.

Work shadowing

The firm has a number of available intern places throughout the year (except during July and August when the Courts are closed) for law students to work shadow our solicitors for a week. Where possible students are given the opportunity to shadow solicitors with different specialities each day. At different times throughout the year work shadow weeks are available to school students contemplating a possible legal career. The firm does not pay any salary to students attending work shadow weeks.

Summer Work

The firm has a number of available temporary intern places each summer providing cover for reception staff holidays, carrying out audits of documents held & archiving of concluded files. These are paid administrative posts which offer an insight into how a law firm works & the opportunity to learn from permanent staff.

Customer Relationship Management

From time to time the firm offers part time opportunities in customer care and relationship management roles. These opportunities would suit students prepared to work in the late afternoon and early evening.

Paralegal Jobs

The firm currently employs over 40 paralegals. The minimum academic requirement is A-Level or equivalent attainment. The overwhelming majority of the firm's paralegals have degrees and many have law degrees. These jobs are in the areas of debt recovery, repossession, employment, estate administration, will writing, residential conveyancing, remortgage, personal injury and family law work. These are permanent career positions although some positions are available to law graduates wishing to experience legal work and a law firm environment as a stepping stone to obtaining an Institute place or a training contract provided a twelve month minimum commitment is made to the firm. Many of the paralegal positions involve daily client contact and case load responsibility under the supervision and direction of Solicitors.
