Job Description

As one of the fastest growing commercial law firms in Yorkshire, our partner has developed a reputation for putting the needs of the client first, industry-leading expertise and an approach that is unmistakably Yorkshire. Due to this continued growth across the business and, in particular, the Environmental & Regulatory team, we are currently recruiting for a Paralegal to join this forward-thinking, fast-paced and supportive team.

Reporting to the Partner, your responsibilities will include:

  • Providing key legal research on environmental and regulatory cases enabling the partner to provide the best possible advice and recommend a course of action to clients
  • Writing reports that will position the team as a market leader in the environmental and regulatory sector
  • Managing your own caseload and working with the Partner on more complex cases
  • Handling written, email and telephone correspondence from customers, clients, court, third parties and other departments and ensuring delivery is in line with client SLA’s

As the right candidate, you have at least three years experience in a similar role or within an environmental consultancy, science, geography, environment agency, emergency planning or health and safety. Whilst legal experience is not necessary you must be able to learn quickly and not be afraid of graft. You are customer focused, resourceful, pro-active, organised and work well in a collaborative team environment.

In return, our partner offers a very competitive salary and benefits, training and development and is flexible with hours as this role can either be full-time or part-time and as such is suited to someone looking to return to work or achieve greater work/life balance.
