Our client, a prestigious law firm, seeks a Paralegal to join their team in Colchester, Essex. Their clients range from some of the world's largest multinational corporations to private individuals, charities, Registered Providers and Regulators and they are currently one of the UK's leading full service law firms.
Assisting the firm's Securitisation team, you will assist solicitors with a wide range of property tasks including identifying titles, obtaining office copies, carrying out pre-completion Land Registry searches, drafting contracts and leases and working closely with partners to case manage files. This is an extremely varied role at an excellent firm that really rewards paralegals with genuine opportunities for career progression. Securitisation is a niche area of property law and accordingly, the firm will provide tailored training on the job. The successful candidate will eventually be responsible for their own caseload and carrying out the property due diligence required in order to charge social housing properties to a private lender.
Applicants should have some legal work experience and strong academics including a minimum 2:1 or equivalent in an undergraduate degree and ideally be completing or to have completed their LPC. Interested candidates will have a client focused manner, a methodical approach and should be ambitious and looking to make an impression on the team. This is an ideal job for those looking to start their legal career and gain or improve their property legal skills, whilst working in a leading city law firm from the Colchester office. Previous property or conveyancing experience would be ideal, however, this is not essential - it is more important the candidate is ambitious, driven and willing to learn.
I have worked closely with the firm over the last 12 months and this really is an excellent opportunity.
