Your new company

This is an international law firm with an excellent reputation for being progressive, modern and commercially focussed. With an already well established Bristol offering, this firm is in growth mode and looking to hire bright and ambitious staff members at a range of levels.

Your new role

You will work alongside a team of support staff at varying levels including apprentices and administrators depending on business requirements you will be exposed to some very interesting work.

You will receive first class training and support from the outset and work alongside some very talented people. Gaining experience in a wide range of legal areas, predominantly in insurance - you will be exposed to Professional and Financial Risks, Employment, Property, Casualty and Construction. You will develop your skillset in time and be offered the chance to progress for ambitious and talented individuals.

You will perform a number of tasks including (but not limited to) drafting letters, legal research, costs budgets, contract review, liaison with clients and third parties.

What you'll need to succeed
