Paralegal/Housing Adviser

£22,562 pa + excellent benefits

Full time-37.5 hours per week

Norwich

Closing date: Monday 29 th April 2019 at 11.30pm

We're looking for a results-driven, commercially aware individual to join our efficient legal team in Norwich as a Paralegal/Housing Adviser. While direct experience of housing advice or litigation would be ideal, we are more interested in your intellectual aptitude and ability to solve problems.

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change — with individuals, in communities, across society – and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

About the Role

A great chance to help us ensure we provide our clients with a full service, you'll carry an active caseload and assist the solicitors to maintain their own active litigation caseload. This will enable homeless people, as well as those with housing and related problems, to enforce their existing rights. Taking instructions and witness statements, drafting letters, making applications, providing court representation - you'll do all of this. And when it comes to making sure time recording and income targets are met, again we'll count on you to deliver.

About you

You'll need an intellectual aptitude and excellent critical reasoning skills, not to mention the ability to provide a good standard of professional service and client care. Proactive, results-driven and commercially aware, you enjoy collaborating as part of a team, respond quickly and positively to change and are not afraid to challenge the status quo and introduce new ideas when appropriate. What's more, you're a great listener - someone who, having taken the facts into account, is able to communicate their thoughts clearly both in writing and face-to- face. Proficiency using case management systems and Microsoft Office applications is also essential, with good typing skills preferred.

Benefits include 30 days & annual leave (pro rata), the possibility of flexible working, enhanced family friendly policies and significant opportunities for learning and development.

Shelter helps millions of people every year struggling with bad housing or homelessness through our advice, support and legal services. And we campaign to make sure that, one day, no one will have to turn to us for help.

We're here so no one has to fight bad housing or homelessness on their own.

All our staff will be expected to observe professional standards of behaviour and conduct their work in line with our Safeguarding Policies.
