Paralegal required to join a great local authority focusing mainly on Litigation. This role is based in Northamptonshire for an initial 3 month period, with the possibility of extension thereafter.
As a Litigation Paralegal, you will be assisting lawyers to provide a professional legal service to both public sector and not for profit clients. Some responsibilities will include, but not be limited to:
- Carrying out research
- Preparing applications
- Instructing expert witnesses
- Liaising with witnesses
- Defending insurance claims
- Drafting correspondence
This is a fantastic opportunity to get on board with a well-known local authority, who offer great benefits such as 1-2 days working from home after a settling in period.
The ideal Litigation Paralegal will have previous experience of working within a local authority, however this is not essential. Previous experience in section 51 highways act defences and general civil litigation is also highly desirable.
