Law Costs Draftsman (Court of Protection) (4281)

We’re a national law firm with a local reach. Our philosophy is ‘Expert Hand, Human Touch’ – something you’ll find in the way we work with our clients and how we support our teams. But we’re more than just a law firm – we’re a team of people working together to help individuals and businesses navigate life’s ups and downs. Working here you’ll feel a part of our friendly and inclusive environment.

We’ll value you for who you are and what you bring. We support each other and push boundaries to achieve incredible things and make a real difference to our clients and communities.

This is an excellent opportunity for an experienced ambitious individual to join a growing national team. You’ll be involved in the preparation of Bills of Costs for our Court of Protection department. Ideally, you’ll have minimum two years experience working either in house or for an external supplier of costs drafting services. Ideally this is a Sheffield based role; however, we’re keen to accommodate what’s best for you, so we are open to discussions about remote working with attendance in the office once per week.

  • Basic knowledge of legal procedures
  • Experience in one or more legal departments
  • Be able to work in a pressurised and stressful environment

  • Ability to communicate clearly with stakeholders across the business
  • Desirable but not essential financial or legal qualifications e.g.: ACL
  • Desirable but not essential Financial or law degree.

 

We’re proud of our values, and we’re looking for people who share them:

  • To be pioneering with an imaginative outlook
  • To be approachable and caring
  • To be tenacious in the pursuit of our objectives
  • To be efficient in the provision of our services
  • To work with a foundation of integrity.

 

 

Our Benefits - What We Can Offer You
  • Flexible working options - Make work fit around your life, not the other way around.
  • 25 days holidays as standard plus bank holidays - You can ‘buy’ up to 35hrs of extra holiday too
  • Generous and flexible pension schemes.
  • Volunteering days – Two days of volunteering every year for a cause of your choice (fully paid)
  • Westfield Health membership, offering refunds on medical services alongside our Aviva Digital GP services.

We also offer a wide range of well-being initiatives to encourage positive mental health both in and out of the workplace and to make sure you’re fully supported to work in a way that best suits you.  This includes our Flexible by Choice programme which gives our colleagues more choice over how they wish to work subject to role and client requirements.

We have recently been ranked in the Best Workplaces for Wellbeing for Large Organisations for 2023! 

Our responsible business programmes are fundamental to who we are and our purpose. We’re committed to being a diverse and inclusive workplace where our colleagues can flourish, and we have established a number of inclusion network groups across our business to support this aim.  

Our commitment to Social Responsibility, community investment activity and tackling climate change is a fundamental part of who we are. It’s made up of four strands: Our People, Our Community, Our Environment and Our Pro Bono.
