A national law firm is looking for a Costs Draftsperson at least two years’ experience in a similar role to join its growing team and stretch their expertise in this highly technical role.

If you’re looking for more flexibility and homeworking, this role is fantastic, as it comes with the ability to work from home four days per week.

You’ll join the commercial litigation and recoveries arm of the business, getting your teeth into interesting, complex, high value cases.

The firm takes a “people first” approach, promoting a healthy work/life balance through a reduced-hours week (35 hours) and flexible/home working, so you’ll be able to fit your work around your personal commitments.

The firm invests in its team members from day one, starting with a structured on-boarding programme and continuing via a structured development and progression plan. Indeed, learning and development is a core part of the firm’s company culture, and you’ll be able to move up into a Team Leadership role quickly.

You’ll have plenty of opportunities to learn from more senior colleagues, including some of the country’s most well-known experts, and cultivate new skills which will enable you to progress in your career.

Pay is competitive and its benefits package is as you’d expect of a national firm and includes private medical insurance, critical illness cover, access to a virtual GP and several high street discounts.

The right candidate will have at least two years’ experience in a similar role, with previous experience of client liaison and of preparing points of dispute. You’ll be able to manage your own caseload, drafting schedules, preparing costs strategies and negotiating settlements.
