Working with doctors, working for patients

Paralegals - Fixed term contract for 6 months

As part of our close knit, in-house legal team, you could become a specialist in this fascinating area of law, working on a uniquely varied and sometimes high-profile caseload. You’ll be part of a team supporting solicitors by investigating, progressing and preparing cases that may be referred to the Medical Practitioner’s Tribunal Service. This will involve everything from taking witness statements and instructing counsel, to liaising with solicitors representing doctors.  You will also be responsible for preparation of cases to be heard before the Interim Orders Tribunal and also preparing court documents for applications in the High Court.

An unwavering attention to detail needs to be combined with the ability to interact well with colleagues, the medical profession and the public. IT literacy and a willingness to travel throughout the UK will both be essential.

In return, you’ll benefit from being part of an organisation that is genuinely committed to its people. Within our friendly environment, you will have access to a range of learning and development opportunities designed to support your ongoing progression. . We offer an attractive salary and benefits package.
