  • Top-of-market pay
  • Work from home up to five days per week
  • Fantastic scope for progression as part of a fast-growing national team
  • Share purchase options – significant value as company grows

An exciting, fast-growing law firm is seeking a contentious probate paralegal to play a central role in helping to build the next specialist national private client firm.

The firm has recently acquired a highly regarded contentious probate team and is well on its way to becoming a leading specialist with a particular focus on private wealth and disputed wills and trusts.

In addition to top-of-market pay, you’ll be able to work from home up to five days per week and gain access to an unrivalled progression pathway due to the unique position and growth aims of the business.

Not only will you have plenty of opportunities for promotion, but as one of the founding team members you’ll also be given shares in the firm, the value of which will substantially increase as time goes on.

You’ll join a team of ten lawyers based nationally and work directly for a highly experienced contentious probate specialist based in Leeds, managing a very reasonable but high-quality caseload of wills, trusts, probate and inheritance disputes.
