We have an exciting opportunity for a Locum Housing Paralegal to join a west London Borough Council.

The successful Housing Paralegal will need experience and understanding of housing issues, provide support and manage a caseload of housing disrepair matters. The role will include dealing with task such as;

  • To maintain a caseload of routine and some non-routine matters under supervision
  • To deal with a high volume of housing disrepair and housing allocation challenges
  • To provide clear and accurate legal advice to clients in the Council's services
  • To draft legal documentation
  • To attend court with counsel on own cases and those of others in Legal Services
  • To undertake basic advocacy on behalf of the Council in courts and tribunals, where this is part of the work of the team
  • To deliver briefs and other papers to courts and barristers' chambers and issue/file documents with Courts

This is a fantastic opportunity for paralegal or newly qualified lawyer to get the opportunity to work directly with and support the client department team on a large number of cases. Our client is ideally looking for a Housing Paralegal who has worked in local authority, but those with transferable skills from private practice will be strongly considered.

This is a locum role and the duration of the role is 3 months initially, with the strong likelihood of extension.

We encourage interested applicants to apply immediately to be considered for short listing. Alternatively should you require further information or wish to discuss your suitability before applying please contact Rayhaneh Tehrani in our Manchester office for a confidential chat.
