With over 10 years’ experience helping legal professionals find job opportunities, it is easy to understand why Accutrainee is perfectly placed to help you find your next paralegal role. Whatever your circumstances or stage of your career, we are here to help as Your Partner in Law.
We can offer you opportunities at a wide range of in-house legal teams, large city law firms, boutiques, start-ups and everything in between through our Accuflex service.
The application process is quick and easy to complete.
By applying for this role you are not applying for a specific paralegal position. Instead, you are applying to be added to our successful candidates database for paralegal opportunities.
If successful, we would take the time to understand your preferences, experience and interests, in order to match those with paralegal opportunities available with our clients. These include both law firms and in-house teams, from boutique firms doing niche areas of law to international and US firms, but also banks, financial institutions, media and entertainment companies and much more! Our clients cover a wide range of practice areas.
Opportunities vary from short paralegal roles of a few weeks to longer placements lasting for a few months, but also permanent positions where you would be hired directly by our clients.
The Selection Process
We would review your application and if your skills, experience and qualifications match our requirements, we will contact you to schedule an interview with a member of our recruitment team.
What we look for
A law degree or equivalent (LLB/GDL or SQE1) is beneficial and may mean more opportunities will be open to you as some clients require a degree of previous legal training.
Previous experience of working within a legal environment is an advantage, but not essential.
In general, we are looking for candidates that can demonstrate good core competencies.
Excellent communication skills
Demonstrate strong attention to detail
Capable of working on your own as well as part of a team
Confident with good emotional intelligence
When to apply
As paralegal opportunities arise throughout the year, it is advisable to get your application in to us as quickly as possible. During the selection process we will discuss with you the type of experience you are looking to gain.
Qualifying Work Experience (QWE)
Please note that experience gathered under this role will not be counted as QWE. If you are interested in QWE please make a separate application for Trainee Solicitor opportunities.
