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 Womble Bond Dickinson prides itself on, and it's something that we've become so well known for. The Legal Solutions Centre (LSC) is an essential part of our business made up of over 70 paralegals and legal executives, project managers, data analysts and client co-ordinators. They use flexible resourcing and time-saving technology to deliver a high-quality, cost-effective service for a range of large scale projects.
Our dedicated Paralegal Team are now on the lookout for an Insurance Paralegal to join them.
What will you be doing?
The Insurance team work on behalf of large corporates and major insurance companies. You'll help to advise insureds on a daily basis as to the best way to respond to and resolve claims made against them. This is a client-facing role and as you gain experience you will also be given the opportunity to handle your own caseload of recovery claims. There will also be opportunities for you to get involved with the wider projects within the Legal Solutions Centre.
For a candidate with sufficient Insurance experience, we may be able to bring you in as an Associate / Senior Paralegal, meaning you'll support Managing Paralegals and Lawyers in the team by assisting with the supervision of other paralegals work. This could be a great way to progress your Paralegal career.
So what are we looking for?
Ideally you'll already have experience working on Insurance cases, whether this is as a Paralegal or another non-legal role. What's equally important to us is the great skills you're going to be able to bring with you. There's a great level of responsibility so you'll need to be proactive, motivated and able to manage your workload effectively. You'll also 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. Whether you've built these skills in legal or non-legal roles in a completely different sector, we'd love to hear from you.
