It's no secret that we're an ambitious firm and our vision and our culture truly reflects that.  At the heart of this is an outstanding client experience, something that Bond Dickinson prides itself on, and it's something that we've become so well known for.  We believe it's what will support the growth of our business, allow us to do rewarding and profitable work and create a sustainable business for our people.  Central to all of this are our very talented lawyers, but they couldn't achieve their results without the ongoing support from our Paralegals who have an essential role to play in growing the business and maintaining efficient and cost effective service delivery on behalf of our lawyers and clients.

Our dedicated Paralegal Team, based in Plymouth, are now on the lookout for a Litigation Paralegal to join them, specialising, predominately, in debt recovery matters, but there will be opportunities for you to get involved with the wider commercial disputes team.  The team act on behalf of leading utilities, infrastructure and retail organisations providing a comprehensive recoveries service.  Your role will see you working on a range of debt recovery matters producing pre-action letters, issuing, executing and completing claims through the County Court, enforcing Judgment Orders where necessary, drafting Statutory Demands, issuing Bankruptcy and Winding Up Proceedings and defending claims issued against our clients.

So what are we looking for?

We're looking for someone who is keen to build their career as a litigation fee-earner.  It's important that we offer our clients the best possible client experience and we believe that comes from allowing them to build strong and meaningful relationships with their legal team.  So this isn't necessarily for someone who is looking to secure a training contract quickly.   If, however, you're looking to build your career in this specialism, we absolutely want to hear from you.  You might already be working towards your CILEx qualification, or have gained previous experience as a paralegal within litigation or debt recovery.

In any event, the qualification is less important than those great skills that you're going to be able to bring with you. You'll be running your own caseload so you'll need to be proactive, motivated and able to manage your workload effectively.  You'll certainly be highly organised, efficient and able to prioritise effectively as we often work to tight and urgent deadlines.  As this is a client facing role, you'll be expected to build and maintain strong relationships, recognising what matters most to our clients and offering them commercial solutions. 

What's in it for you?

We know that it's not all about us.  You'll want to be assured that this is the right opportunity for you and we really believe that this is a fantastic place to work.  You'll be joining a supportive team where you can learn from true leaders in their field and build your experience with access to great quality work and great clients. Supported by a collegiate approach, and firm wide commitment to paralegal development there are fewer better places to develop your legal career.

And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.

If you think this is for you, why not get in touch to find out more; my name is Samantha Lee and you can reach me on 0117 989 6521.
