Are you up to the challenge of working in a fast-paced changing environment where one day is never the same as the next? Are you so organised that you naturally plan to complete your own work before known deadlines and therefore could be flexible enough to support our team of litigators with administrative tasks when court emergencies arise? If so, we have a unique opportunity working as a Level 3 Business apprentice with John Delaney & Co Solicitors in central Leeds.
Initially, this is a junior administrative role within the firm working with a small but exceptionally busy law firm primarily undertaking criminal and family law court work. You must be a team player with an appetite to learn about life in a litigation practice.
You will have sound communication skills and the patience, maturity and understanding to work alongside clients who may well be facing a challenging time in their life. The right candidate should be able to demonstrate an ability and willingness to work with a wide range of clients and busy professionals as well as the desire to learn from the ‘bottom up’.
During the latter part of the apprenticeship, you will develop the knowledge, independence and skills to manage a new project or development within the organisation. The firm have a successful track rack of developing apprentices to more senior roles with the organisation.
The firm is happy to accept applications from applicants who are able to start immediately, as well as candidates who are looking to start an apprenticeship after their summer examinations.
Hours per week: 35 hours
Expected Length of apprenticeship: 21 – 24 months
