Hours
Full Time

Due to strong growth in recent months, my client is looking to improve on and add to its already impressive offering by recruiting a senior paralegal to non-portal Fast Track and complex portal claims, including portal claims that proceed to litigation. This role present a perfect opportunity for the successful candidate to build upon their previous experience and work for a forward-thinking organisation.

Your responsibilities in this role will include valuing injury claims for general and special damages, handling claims throughout the claims process including part 7 and part 8 litigation through to trial and also dealing with court applications and witness statements.

Ideally, this role is targeted at someone who is seeking to continue their career as a claims handler / paralegal. Candidates looking to ultimately qualify as a solicitor should be aware that my client is unable to offer training contracts at this stage. As such, this role would perhaps be more suitable for candidates wanting to work within law but who are not wanting to go down any qualification routes.

In order to undertake this role, candidates will need to ensure they can meet the following criteria:

  • Approximately 2 years' experience of handling litigated part 7/8 personal injury claims.
  • Previous experience of working within a fast-paced Personal Injury law firm.
  • Knowledge of RTA Portal and Protocols.
  • Previous experience of dealing with Fast Track claims.

My client also has a favourable arrangement on hybrid working and would be ideal for candidates looking for a good balance between working from home and working collaboratively in-person with colleagues.

My client is considering a starting salary of approximately £28 000 but depending on experience it could be more.
