Paralegal – Bristol

Full time

Competitive salary and benefits package

Novum Law is a law firm that specialises in personal injury, asbestos disease, and medical negligence.

We offer dedicated, sensitive, and personal support to assist our clients in pursuing their compensation claims.  Our primary focus is on helping to improve our clients’ quality of life and so we work collaboratively to facilitate medical treatment, rehabilitation, specialist care and support whilst the claim is ongoing. We also help our clients access the right advice on personal finance, grants, and benefits.

We have an exciting opportunity for an experienced paralegal to join our busy but small and friendly team at our Novum Law office in Bristol. Our office is in Redcliffe, and is a short walk from Bristol Temple Meads train station and the city centre.

This role will see the successful candidate providing paralegal support to our medical negligence solicitors.  Dealing solely with Claimant medical negligence cases, the successful candidate will be responsible for assisting on a varied caseload both pre- and post-issue, with an opportunity to also assist on personal injury and fatal cases.

The work is diverse and challenging and is an opportunity to work with supportive and knowledgeable professionals who can provide excellent personal and professional development.  There is also the opportunity for progression to run a caseload (with appropriate support and supervision).

To apply for this role, candidates will need a minimum of 12 months’ paralegal experience within either clinical negligence, personal injury or fatal work. The successful candidate will ideally have some experience of:

  • Preparing, scheduling and organising relevant documentation;
  • Helping senior fee earners investigate and progress their cases;
  • Dealing with clients both by phone or in person.

We are happy to accept full-time and part-time applications and can offer flexible working options. We also open to hearing from law graduates who wish to pursue a career in clinical negligence law.

If this opportunity sounds of interest, then we would love to hear from you. For more detailed information about this role or to apply, please email HR@novumlaw.com with a cover letter clearly outlining your relevant experience and salary expectations.

We offer a competitive reward and benefits package including a generous annual leave entitlement and comprehensive health and well-being benefits.

You can find out more information about us and our specialist legal services on our website www.novumlaw.com.

All successful applicants are required to complete our employment screening process. This process helps to ensure that all new employees meet our standards in relation to honesty and integrity therefore protecting the interests of our business, existing employees, clients, and other stakeholders.  Background checks made will establish your eligibility to work in the UK, and a DBS check will also be undertaken.  Our employment screening process will fully comply with Data Protection and other applicable laws.
