Court of Protection Paralegal – Top pay – Hybrid working – Future training contract available 

Greater Manchester 

Up to £38,000, dependant on experience 

Our client is looking for a Court of Protection Paralegal to join its growing team in Greater Manchester.  

The role offers top-of-market pay, the ability to work from home for two days per week, and a clear progression path, including the potential of a future training contract if you are looking to qualify as a solicitor.  

In the role, you will handle Grade C and D Court of Protection work, directly supporting a solicitor with over 10 years’ experience with a national firm background. The right candidate will have at least two years’ experience handling similar work.  

Realm has been the recruitment partner for this regional firm for several years and – hand on heart – they are an absolute dream to work with. They are extremely proactive in remaining competitive with compensation and bonus schemes, benefits, and flexibility/remote-working. As a result, this firm has a very happy team and an incredibly high employee retention rate.   

The many lawyers we have placed here enjoy their work, benefitting from a genuinely lovely team, fantastic benefits package and manageable caseload, leaving plenty of room for an excellent work/life balance. The team even benefits from all-expenses-paid weekends away – which should demonstrate the intense focus this firm puts on engagement and job satisfaction. The professionals we place here always comment on how comfortable and welcome they feel from day one.   

Their offices are also easily commutable from North, East, South and Central Manchester with great transport links, including quick access to the M60.   

They are the go-to firm for the regional business and private client community and generate most of their work via word-of-mouth referrals, so lawyers here enjoy a sustainable and varied stream of cases to get their teeth into, enabling them to broaden their experience and commercial skills.     

The firm has a clear progression framework and regularly reviews team salaries and promotability. Plus, it is on an impressive growth track and has added to each of its teams in the past 12 months, so team members feel positive and part of something successful.  

If you currently work for a smaller high street or regional firm and want to be part of something bigger, with more opportunities for progression – or perhaps even just want a better quality of life working as a valued member of a lovely team – we highly recommend you get in touch with us.
