Our client is an award winning, Legal 500 ranked, full-service law firm which is rapidly expanding. They advise UK and international businesses and individuals, and pride themselves on providing long term support to their clients.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a Dispute Resolution Paralegal to join the firm’s Farnborough office on a part time basis. The successful candidate will run their own caseload, consisting of undefended debt recovery work which includes bulk clients as well as unpaid client invoices.
Alongside this, you will have the chance to assist the fee earners with providing legal support and appropriate level of advice to clients on more complex matters. You will be involved with networking and building client relationships, bringing in new business through various events.
Ideally, you will already have exposure to running your own caseload of undefended debt recovery matters with minimal supervision, however the firm will consider candidates who have been assisting to date and want to take the next step up to a fee earning level.
In addition to a competitive starting salary of £26,000-£35,000 per annum, the firm offer a generous benefits package to include a lucrative fee-earning bonus scheme with scope to earn an additional £4,000-£7,000 per annum, pension scheme and free parking.

- Knowledge of Court process and contract law
- Excellent prioritisation, organisational and written/oral communication skills
