ODonnells Solicitors, Preston - Paralegals to support COP and MH teams (deadline 19/11/18)
We are recruiting additional paralegals, to support our mental health and Court of Protection teams, both at introductory and more advanced levels.
We will consider candidates looking for full-time and part-time positions.
For candidates who already have a law degree, and some experience of working in a solicitor's office, there is an opportunity to progress quickly to the position of trainee solicitor. There is also an opportunity for those who do not have such qualifications and experience, but do have a willingness to learn and interest in providing PA-type support to other members of the team. Extensive training will be provided.
What is essential is a genuine interest in supporting the needs and rights of vulnerable individuals, who may have complex mental health needs, and an understanding of the importance of being part of a team. The successful candidate will need good communication skills, familiarity with use of computer systems, and a calm and level-headed approach under pressure.
Salary dependent upon level of experience and qualifications.
Interviews will be at our office in Preston. Applications should be by email with CV attached, addressed to our managing partner, Jane Gale, and sent care of the following email address: email@example.com (please quote reference MHLO).
Closing date for applications - 19/11/18
