[Forward to a friend]
5 years +
It's no secret that we're an ambitious firm and our vision and our culture truly reflects that. At the heart of this is an outstanding client experience, something that Bond Dickinson prides itself on, and it's something that we've become so well known for. We believe it's what will support the growth of our business, allow us to do rewarding and profitable work and create a sustainable business for our people. Central to all of this are our very talented lawyers, but they couldn't achieve their results without the ongoing support from our Paralegals who have an essential role to play in growing the business and maintaining efficient and cost effective service delivery on behalf of our lawyers and clients. Since 2011, our Onshore Paralegal team has been providing an essential service to the business helping teams deliver the most cost effective solutions to their clients whilst improving our own profitability. The team has grown and developed to over 70 paralegals, chartered legal executives, and management information specialists capable of providing support to teams on a regular and ongoing basis, for discrete projects or secondment opportunities.
Our business is continuing to grow, our clients are increasingly demanding more for less, the legal market is changing at a rapid pace and remains fiercely competitive. We need to respond to these challenges and that's why we've made a commitment to invest further in the development of the Onshore team. We've a team of highly motivated and high performing paralegals, but to ensure they continue to deliver we've put in place a team of qualified lawyers to provide technical supervision and training to the various paralegal teams. Having already recruited into a number of areas, we're now looking to strengthen the team with another senior litigation lawyer.
So what are we looking for?
We're looking for a commercial disputes lawyer, technically strong, with previous experience in managing people, ideally paralegals, and a passion for developing talent. Whilst you're likely to have your own small caseload, it's anticipated that the majority of your time will be spent working with team leaders and other stakeholders within the DR group scoping out projects, agreeing training requirements for the team, establishing service standards and methods of quality control, providing technical supervision and development for the paralegals and potentially more junior lawyers in your team.
You'll work closely with the Director of Onshore, and key client partners to continue to build a credible and high performing team of paralegals, with the flexibility to respond to the changing needs of our clients, our business and our profession, driving growth in the team and, as a consequence, revenue for the business.
This role will be based in our Plymouth office but given the geographical spread of our business, you'll be expected to spend time in all of our locations, working closely with a variety of stakeholders to promote a continued pipeline of work for the team that ultimately will benefit both our clients and our business.
What's in it for you?
We know that it's not all about us. You'll want to be assured that this is the right opportunity for you and we really believe that this is a fantastic place to work. This is a unique opportunity for you to combine your technical expertise with your natural flair for people development in supportive and collegiate environment. But don't worry, your own personal development won't take a backseat. Our amazing Learning and Development team have created a fantastic development programme which will help support you in this role by enhancing your business and leadership capabilities.
And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.
