We are always pleased to hear from anyone who may wish to bring their skills to our firm.

Paralegal Position with a view to a Training Contract

Closing date for applications: 31.05.2018

Shacklocks invite applications from candidates to work as Paralegals in our offices across Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire. These positions will be for a period of up to 12 months, with the opportunity of a Training Contract at the end of that period for the right candidates. Paralegal positions are expected to be full time, to commence in September 2018.

Candidates should be able to demonstrate a strong commitment to the areas of Nottinghamshire or Derbyshire, have a 2:2 degree or equivalent and have passed the LPC, or anticipate having passed the LPC by summer 2018.

In addition, candidates must be able to demonstrate aspiration and determination to succeed in their chosen career and a keen interest in the areas of law that we practice.  Good communication and work management skills, attention to detail, and effective team working are essential qualities for this position, and as a firm with a number of offices providing a local service to our clients you will be required to have a driving licence and access to your own transport.

Successful candidates can expect that the work of a Paralegal will be varied, rewarding and, at times, demanding.  As well as carrying out work for clients under supervision, you will provide support to our legal, administrative and management teams ranging from research and accounting to more practical assistance such as managing (and sometimes moving!) large volumes of documents, databasing, scanning, photocopying and other essential support tasks.  A positive, practical, and problem-solving approach to your work is essential.

Shacklocks LLP is a progressive and innovative firm of Solicitors and Investment Advisors with offices in Allestree, Belper, Ripley and Mansfield, clients throughout Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire, and accreditation in both Lexcel and the Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme. We offer our employees pleasant working conditions away from the busy city centres, competitive rates of pay, good IT systems, and a package of benefits. We are committed to equality of opportunity.

Shacklocks LLP has trained many generations of lawyers since it first opened its doors back in the 1800's.  At Shacklocks LLP today, we remain just as committed to training the next generation of lawyers.
