Hunters’ client is offering an exciting Trainee Solicitor opportunity for an exceptional graduate Paralegal (1st or 2.1.) The successful solicitor trainee will enjoy a career in commercial litigation, property litigation, construction litigation and employment law. IT is very important that you have ties to the Eastbourne/Brighton area and ideally resident within commuting distance.
The successful candidate could be a trainee, or NQ including someone who has completed BPTC and LPC looking to qualify. It would be highly desirable to recruit someone slightly up the training curve and with some experience of hard work already – and clearly a higher salary can be offered. The key to successfully applying for this vacancy is to demonstrate that you are a prospective solicitor who fully understands your career path, where they want to be, and the genuinely hard work required to get you there. We are specifically looking for evidence of experience grafting and genuine hunger to improve yourself. A training contract could be offered following probation. It is important that the trainee is already based and established in the area.
Our client offers an extraordinary service to their clients. Consequently they are looking for candidates of extraordinary calibre who can win the trust and confidence of clients, and who can communicate with intellectual subtlety and precise grammar. The successful candidate will be flexible and diligent, and also offer common-sense and positivity.
Our client is a well-respected central Brighton Firm specialising in advising businesses and property professionals in particular. Core areas of work include commercial, construction and property litigation as well as advising businesses in avoiding problems and dealing with employment issues with the expertise and professionalism of a City Practice. Our client has a ‘business first’ approach and they give clear, practical and concise advice. Their fundamental belief is that they need to make as much effort as possible to understand their clients’ businesses and talk their language. They are constantly looking for ways to develop their services and the way that they work to ensure they provide a better and more cost effective service to their clients. They use technology and software in innovative ways and offer fixed fees and flexible funding structures.
