Legal 500 says that we have the "...ethical positioning and moral commitment of a standard civil liberties practice with the quality of the Magic Circle", while Chambers say that “the principles and heart of this firm make it stand out from the crowd.”

We are seeking to recruit a paralegal/caseworker to join our successful immigration team which is highly regarded and rated as a national leader in all aspects of immigration, asylum and nationality law. We act for clients from all over the world, from a diverse and growing client base, in all areas of immigration and related law. There is the possibility that this position could lead to a training contract at a later date.

Main Duties and Responsibilities:

The role will consist of assisting the team with case preparation, including legal research, client liaison, drafting statements, processing evidence, collating and ordering documentation evidence, attending conferences and court, and assisting with legal aid applications. Much of the work will involve asylum applications and appeal preparation, in particular for publicly funded clients

Skills / Knowledge Requirements:

* At least 1 years immigration law experience;
* Accreditation with the Law Society immigration and asylum accreditation at level 2 is essential.

You will also need to:

* be highly motivated, proactive, self-servicing, enthusiastic,
* have excellent communication, organisation and administrative skills,
* have a flexible and professional attitude,
* be able to work on confidential matters and under pressure together with a keen eye for detail.

In order to be able to work fully within the team, the post holder will be expected to be accredited at level 2 within the Law Society’s Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme before commencing employment and any offer of employment will be subject to this requirement.

As we work with separated children, you will also have to undergo a CRB check, as this is a requirement of the Legal Aid Agency.
