Croftons Solicitors LLP is a niche housing and regeneration, property and charity team of lawyers based in the centre of Manchester.
Total team of 45, all on one site, providing joined up thinking across our teams for clients.
We have a clear vision to become a leading provider of legal services, with a full legal offering, to the housing and regeneration sector.
Cultural fit is extremely important to us in relation to any new team member: Core values permeate all we do. We are all equals with different, yet clear roles/functions. We want stars, but who are prepared to shoot in broadly the same direction, in accordance with our overall vision, not do their own thing. We want team members who add to the genuine enthusiasm, excitement and excellence we already have. We want people who impress our clients and our colleagues by not only their technical legal application, but also by their pragmatism, commercial acumen and ability to get the outcomes our clients need on time, on budget and by making our clients’ lives easier. Our clients instruct people they like and so we want team members who are good 'people people'. We like those with some entrepreneurial spirit, who spot opportunities and respond to the market place, embracing the future.
We are seeking an experienced housing management paralegal, either from private practice or in-house with a social housing provider. Applications also welcomed from those with experience of acting for tenants.
The position is to work alongside our leading northwest housing management team of 4 qualified lawyers and 2 paralegals in relation to housing disrepair matters and general housing litigation, serving our large Registered Provider client base.
Experience of drafting court papers and the social housing sector would be an advantage but training will be provided. This is an excellent career development opportunity.
Please fill in the online application form via link below, attaching your CV and covering letter.
Please provide details in your covering letter of your interest and suitability particularly in relation to housing litigation, the housing and regeneration sector and our core values.
