Paralegal – Residential PropertyJoin the team at Simpson & Marwick
Simpson & Marwick is one of Scotland’s longest standing and most trusted law firms, having opened its first office in Edinburgh in 1886. Our long standing should not be mistaken for a staid approach to delivering legal services, in fact it is quite the contrary. Where technology and modern working practises make it easier for our clients to work with us, we embrace them and ensure we are always at the vanguard of our profession.
This is an exciting opportunity to join a growing and ambitious team. You will be reporting to the Head of Conveyancing and Director in the Edinburgh team, and supporting them and the rest of the Edinburgh Residential Property Team.
In this role you will:
- Assist with transactions and carry out all aspects of residential conveyancing with minimal supervision. This will include (but not restricted to): purchase; sale; remortgage; transfer of title.
- Work autonomously and as part of a team providing support in a fast-paced, busy environment.
- Identify and manage risk effectively. This includes (but not restricted to) Anti-Money Laundering, Source of Funds, and Source of Wealth requirements.
- Provide assistance to clients and colleagues in the Estate Agency team on general conveyancing matters and transactions.
Our ideal candidate will have experience in residential property in a similar conveyancing role, preferably in Edinburgh, and experience of dealing with high net worth individuals. With strong organisational skills, you will have good technical knowledge and attention to detail and may have had some experience of using new and emerging technology in the delivery of legal services.
We will give preference to candidates holding the Law Society Accredited Paralegal Qualification.
If you enjoy working in a friendly team but have the initiative, drive and ability to work on your own we’d love to hear from you. Please send your CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org
