PERSONAL INJURY LEGAL EXECUTIVE OR PARALEGAL - MANCHESTER

Personal injury RTA Legal executive or Paralegal - Our client, a highly respected national insurance litigation law firm is looking to hire an experienced personal injury paralegal or legal executive with litigated fast track RTA experience to strengthen their growing defendant motor team.

THE ROLE AT A GLANCE

  • Job Title: Personal Injury Legal Executive / Paralegal (Litigated fast track RTA)
  • Location: Manchester
  • Salary: £20,000 - £30,000
  • Reports to: Partner
  • Previous Experience: Around 1 year or more as a personal injury paralegal or legal executive with litigated RTA experience preferably from a defendant insurance litigation background, though claimant RTA experience will also be considered.

THE DEFENDANT MOTOR TEAM

The defendant motor team has witnessed a period of sustained growth over the past eighteen months with the intention of becoming one of the leading teams in the Manchester insurance litigation market. A series of internal promotions of other RTA litigators within the insurance litigation team have led to a number of exciting opportunities within the personal injury RTA department.

The personal injury department is now on a recruitment drive with a view to hiring a number of personal injury fee earners with defendant motor experience to grow and develop the RTA insurance litigation practice.

THE ROLE IN CONTEXT

This particular role is within the defendant RTA insurance litigation team, which is currently recruiting a personal injury legal executive with litigated fast track RTA experience. Their primary responsibility will be to assist with the growing caseload of fast track defendant motor claims as the team continues to grow.

However, there is also an opportunity to guide and supervise the more junior members of the insurance litigation team as well as the less experienced personal injury fee earners.

Ideally our client is looking for ambitious, motivated personal injury legal executives or paralegals with around one year or more litigated defendant motor experience and who is already used to handling their own caseload. Furthermore, applicants should be able to demonstrate:

  • keen attention to detail and commitment to client service
  • the ability to work autonomously as well as in a team;
  • the ability to meet key targets; and
  • a commitment to developing a long term career in this area of law.

OPPORTUNITIES TO PROGRESS WITHIN THE PERSONAL INJURY PRACTICE

These opportunities have arisen due to a number of promotions at senior management level within the personal injury RTA team. Our client maintains a strong commitment to encouraging home-grown talent to rise through the ranks of the firm. Although this personal injury RTA role is a hands-on fee earning role, there is a clear route for talented, ambitious individuals to develop their careers within the insurance litigation practice.

Furthermore, the level of on-going training is outstanding with a key focus on personal development as well as technical knowhow. Finally, these roles offer an excellent salary and benefits package designed to attract the very best candidates.
