“As a firm, we are always on the lookout for talented people who want to build on our success and play an exciting part in our future. Steele Raymond is, at heart, a people business. For us, the law isn’t an abstract concept, rather it is something that is at the core of people’s lives and businesses.”

Legal Assistant / Paralegal - Commercial Property

We are currently seeking to recruit an enthusiastic Commercial Property Legal Assistant / Paralegal in Bournemouth to join our Top Tier Commercial Property team.

This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented person to join our busy and highly regarded team. The role would ideally suit someone who has completed a law degree or GDL and is keen to progress his or her career. 

Providing support to solicitors within the team, the successful candidate will be IT literate and able to manage a varied workload assisting with routine aspects of real estate transactions including drafting and submission of Stamp Duty Land Tax returns, preparation of Land Registry applications and drafting basic commercial property documents with supervision.

Strong organisational skills and the ability to work within a team to meet tight deadlines are essential for the position. Experience of preparing Land Registry applications and Stamp Duty Land Tax returns would be useful, but not essential, as full training will be given.

Successful applicants will have a real commitment to client service and be keen to develop their skills and experience in a leading commercial property team. We are committed to properly rewarding outstanding contribution and we offer excellent working conditions and highly competitive remuneration packages. This is an exciting time to join one of the region’s most dynamic and quality teams and to make your career with us.

We will only use this information to handle your enquiry and will not share it with anyone else.
