A full-service law firm with offices across Yorkshire is seeking an experienced Court of Protection Paralegal to join its Trust and Court of Protection Administration Team based in its Sheffield office.

You’ll enjoy unrivalled flexibility, as you’ll only be required to attend office approximately once per month for team meetings – which is highly unusual for the Yorkshire legal market.

The team forms part of one of largest and most successful private client teams outside of London, specialising in the administration of complex, high value & prestigious estates and enjoying a Tier 1 ranking in the Legal 500. Here, you’ll find a close-knit and collegiate environment where you can have a say in the direction and future of the firm.

In the role, you’ll manage your own caseload comprising of Trusts and Court of Protection/Deputyship and attorney matters, managing a client’s assets, income and expenditure, and maintain long-term relationships with clients and other professionals.

The management team does not encourage a long hours’ culture and has purposefully set billing targets at a low level to enable its team members to enjoy a very happy life/work balance.

The firm also offers an excellent benefits package that includes private medical insurance and a generous holiday entitlement and purchase scheme.
