We are currently seeking an ambitious Paralegal to join our Property Litigation department in our Bristol office on a full time and permanent basis.

The role

In this role you will directly assist fee earners in the team dealing with a range of property litigation matters. You will be fully involved in all aspects of litigation, including the preparation of Court papers, preparing correspondence that is generated as a matter progresses and speaking to clients and third parties by telephone.

This position is a good foundation for you to go on and become a qualified lawyer and many of our Paralegals have gone on to successfully qualify as Solicitors or Chartered Legal Executives.

Who you are

As a recent Law graduate or paralegal with previous experience in Property Litigation or another area of law, you will be self-motivated, independent and eager to learn. We will expect you to work proactively with colleagues to provide them with all the support they need in order to deliver great results for our clients.

You will also be a quick learner, have excellent IT skills and be meticulous and thorough in order to deliver high quality work.

Why join Team Ashfords?

Ask our people, and they will tell you that they genuinely enjoy coming to work and spending time with their colleagues. We’re confident that once you discover our open and friendly culture, it won’t take long for you to feel the same.

We have a genuine team approach at Ashfords because we know that when talented people work together, we achieve more for our clients and each other. We also recognise that each of our career journeys is unique. So, we will be ambitious for you and give you the support you need to develop your career, your way.

Importantly, we will give you the space and flexibility for your life outside work too.

Our goal? To help you realise your full potential as part of a forward-thinking team and business.

That’s what sets us apart.

Our offer

We offer a range of benefits to support you at work and at home.

This includes a flexible working framework giving you the freedom to mix home and office working, extra annual leave for your birthday and the option to buy more holiday.

We have a comprehensive package to support physical and mental health including onsite yoga classes and a gym at our head office, healthcare plans, an Employee Assistance programme and free access for you and up to five friends to the ‘Calm’ Mindfulness App.

You’ll also have the chance to get involved in our responsible business programme, including fundraising initiatives through the Ashfords Foundation and bringing your energy to our environment or diversity groups.

What next?

We offer training and development opportunities to all of our people to help everyone reach their full potential.
