Our client is a well known as respected Top 100 regional law firm

A vacancy has arisen for a Paralegal to work in the Family Team in their Exeter Office. This is a full time opportunity working 9am-5.15pm Monday to Friday. This is a fixed term contract for 6 - 12 months

The Role:

You will be working as a Paralegal within the Family Team, covering both fee earning and administration duties. To some extent this is something of a hybrid role and you will need to have a flexible approach and the ability to work within a team environment.

Duties include, but are not limited to, attending client meetings with other fee earners, preparing notes of meetings, preparing letters, helping manage fee earner diaries, making appointments and chasing up clients for responses.

All fee earning work generated would be supervised and checked by the relevant fee earner.

You will be expected to be self-supporting, and in that regard you will need a good typing speed and good ICT skills.

 

Are you the right person?

The ideal candidate will have excellent interpersonal and communication skills and a focus on exceptional client care. You will have solid paralegal experience and be used to working in a busy and highly professional driven environment.

The position would suit someone who is highly organised, accurate, proactive and committed to meeting deadlines while remaining calm under pressure. Excellent all round communication skills, professional telephone manner and attention to detail is essential.

Previous experience of working in a Family team is an advantage.
