Level 3 Paralegal (Legal Services)

This apprenticeship is the perfect place to begin your law career. Not only does it give you the all-round theoretical knowledge but also the practical experience you need to take your next step as a fully-fledged legal professional within our legal services business.

  • Length 2 years
  • Location Bristol or Stratford-Upon-Avon
  • Hours per Week 37.5
  • Salary £18,500

What happens on the programme?

Over two years, you’ll be an active member of the probate team; supporting our case managers as they carry out the legal work needed to wind up the affairs of someone who has died. All while developing your knowledge, skills and behaviours through on and offline learning, and fully supported by a coach and tutor. After 6 months you’ll start to take accountability for small cases, and as you progress you’ll get more responsibility and more cases until you’re operating as a case manager.

You’ll get all of the support you need to complete your apprenticeship from your line manager and a personal coach, as well as 20% of your contracted hours away from your day job each week to complete your apprenticeship learning.
