Paralegal role in London

We are looking for a Paralegal to provide casework and administrative support for solicitors working on Housing and Public Law cases at our London Bridge office. A minimum commitment of 12 months is required, but we would hope the position would be for longer. Although the position does not guarantee a training contract, we do recruit trainees from our paralegal staff.

We are keen to encourage applications from disabled people, including using positive action measures provided for under the Equality Act 2010. If you think you may need reasonable adjustments and would like to discuss this before applying, you can speak confidentially to Louise Whitfield, a partner here who is not involved in this recruitment process; you can contact her directly at lwhitfield@dpglaw.co.uk . We will also guarantee an interview to any disabled candidate who meets the essential criteria – please complete the relevant section of the diversity questionnaire when applying. Unfortunately our current London offices are not wheelchair accessible.

Salary in the region of £20,000-£23,000.
