We're an ambitious law firm with a clear strategy. We pride ourselves on delivering outstanding services to clients in an innovative way. Our lawyers are clearly central to that, but so too are the people who support them.

There are fundamental changes happening in the legal services market driven by client expectations and technology. The traditional model for providing legal services is being redefined with clients expecting law firms to deliver innovative business models, increased efficiency without compromising on quality.  In response, Bond Dickinson has established a multi-disciplinary legal team in Plymouth to deliver innovative, market leading legal support to the lawyers across our business in the Real Estate, Commercial Disputes, Corporate and Commercial practice groups in administrative and high volume processing activities.  

We're now developing that team and expanding our real estate support into the Bristol office.  As a result, we're looking for Paralegals to join this team and, in particular, a managing paralegal to help supervise, mentor and support the team.

Paralegals in our property team, have responsibility for supporting real estate transactions; taking responsibility for searches, Stamp Duty Land Tax calculations, post completion activities and managing the documentation associated with various property transactions.  As the managing paralegal, you'll also be responsible for the day to day supervision of this team, ensuring the highest quality of service to your internal and external clients, and that the paralegals in the team receive all of the support, guidance and development that they require to enable them to deliver in their roles.

What are we looking for?

We're proud of our diverse teams and believe this is key to our success.  Our people bring a very broad range of experience and skills and you'll be no different.  Given that we're expecting you to be the lead paralegal in this team, previous legal experience is essential, as is a background in property law.  Ideally you'll have some experience in supervising, coaching or mentoring but just as important is that you're able to provide the highest level of customer / client experience in a fast paced environment, will take ownership and use initiative, demonstrate excellent time management and self-motivation with proven forward planning skills whilst with the ability to prioritise. You must also have good communication skills, numeracy and literature skills, and experience of using IT software such as Microsoft Excel and Word.

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 career 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.
