Paralegal to Trainee
We want to recruit the best possible trainees and, in turn, help them develop and realise their true potential – hopefully undertaking a long and successful career with us!
Route 1 – Paralegal to Trainee
We recruit Paralegals throughout the year, as the need arises. When applying for a period of recognised training you should have the same academics as your Route 2 colleagues (unless exceptional circumstances apply) – namely a minimum 2:1 degree (in any subject, although obviously if not an LLB you will also be required to have passed the GDL), have A Levels equivalent to 300 UCAS points and have commenced the LPC.
Paralegals do not have to complete a minimum time at Harrison Clark Rickerbys in order to apply for a period of recognised training. However, your application will be greatly assisted by a written recommendation from your Head of Department. Recommendations can only be given where you have been employed as a Paralegal for a minimum of 6 months (if full time), or 12 months (if part time) – this is your opportunity to really impress your Head of Department!
Should you wish to apply for time to count, you must have completed a minimum of 12 months post LPC service with the Firm. Please note that we will not support applications for less than 6 months’ time to count. Time to count must be applied for at the start of the period of recognised training and not part-way through.
All paralegals who apply for a period of recognised training will be invited to attend our Assessment Centre with other Route 2 candidates.
In the case of both Route 1 and Route 2 applicants we will look for candidates with a link to or interest in one of the regions that we have a presence in.
Submitting an Application
To apply for Route 1 you must submit an updated C.V. and covering letter with your application clearly stating that you are applying for Route 1 and showing a breakdown of your grades from GCSE level and upwards.
Please send your application to Charlotte England, HR Advisor, either via email to; firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to; Harrison Clark Rickerbys, 5 Deansway, Worcester, WR1 2JG. Please contact Charlotte on 01905 612 001 should you have any initial queries regarding your application.
