Job Description

Ryder Reid Legal is working exclusively with a US law firm to recruit a paralegal on an initial 6 month fixed term contract basis.

The successful candidate will be working within the firms' Litigation team and the role will have a large emphasis on carrying out a quarterly process which involves the management of two very large excel files. There's a lot of data management involved in this part of the role (e.g. carrying out formulas and excel functions to raise jurisdictional objections), however the paralegal will also have the opportunity to work on other matters and undertake tasks including document review, bundling, document searches, proofreading etc.

To be considered, candidates must hold a training contract offer (ideally with a similar US or City law firm) to start in 2022 or later, with 6 months' availability to commit to a paralegal role full time. The contract does have the potential to extend, so candidates with 12 months + availability will be particularly of interest. Previous paralegal experience isn't essential, although advantageous.

If you meet the criteria, and are available to start a new role in July, please apply now!
