Following the release of our new software HR Manager the demand for the services of Lawgistics has again started to increase. As a result of this we now find ourselves in the fortunate position of looking for another legal advisor to join the team.
As the legal team continues to grow so does our experience, knowledge and diversity of the legal matters that concern the industry. It is therefore hugely important for us to find the right person with an open and flexible approach that will complement our existing team.
We are extending our search by asking for your help in sharing this opportunity with friends and colleagues that may be interested. Unsure of who we are looking for, we do know we want someone special. The wider we cast our net the more chance we have of finding the right person.
The main body of our work concerns consumer disputes, some of which involve litigation, albeit predominantly cases in the small claims court. However, experience of assisting in Fast and Multi Track cases would be desirable. In addition to consumer disputes, we advise on a range of commercial matters including contract law, commercial property and employment. We also provide advice on Trading Standards matters and miscellaneous issues such as defending PPI claims. In short, the work is varied and interesting and the right candidate needs to have an open and flexible approach to fit in with the current team.
As a minimum, they will have a Law Degree or equivalent such as the GDL or have attained or be working towards Fellowship of CILEX. Ideally, they will have completed the LPC or BVC and have experience with litigation and/or a consumer or Trading Standards advice setting. Experience of commercial and contract law would be desirable.
In addition to the right knowledge base, the right candidate will need excellent case management skills, a sound drafting ability and the confidence to provide effective advice promptly over the telephone to our members who range from “one man” independents working from home to Directors of large Franchise Groups.
They will have a proactive approach to CPD and will enjoy writing legal articles for our own website and various trade magazines. They will have an appreciation of social media promotion and will have the opportunity to participate in our regular radio podcasts and on-line TV work.
This is an interesting and rewarding role which although legal in nature, does not come with the constraints of ‘6 minute’ time recording or unrealistic commercial billing targets. The right candidate will obviously be required to work hard and be committed but in return they will be working with a great team and an interesting client group.
If you believe you have the necessary experience and attitude to enjoy and excel in this role, then please send covering letter with a CV attached to me at [email protected]
