Residential Property/Conveyancing Paralegal

Edinburgh, Salary will be commensurate with experience

We are looking for an experienced residential property/conveyancing paralegal to join our Leith office team at 98-99 Ferry Road, Edinburgh.

Our Leith offices deal with a variety of property, business, employment law, litigation and private client work, in close association with our Davidsons Mains office.  On the property side we are keen to add to our excellent team and continue to grow the business. 

The successful candidate will be confident, friendly, and able to undertake delegated work on files from a Director and to deal with their own files to a large extent.  This role will include client facing aspects, and it is therefore important that the successful candidate is both technically sound with good attention to detail, and a good communicator.  Dealing with matters well and in a manner that is helpful to our clients is our principal aim.

Our office is open-plan, with a good atmosphere and a sense of team work.  It is important to us that whoever joins us is a team player with a “can-do” attitude.

The main elements of the role will include:

  • Assisting one of our Directors in dealing with his files
  • Working autonomously on new files
  • Taking instructions from clients
  • Dealing with all aspects of missives
  • Dealing with all aspects of the conveyancing process in purchases, sales, remortgages and discharges
  • Completing LBTT and Registration processes
  • Prioritising workload sensibly
  • Ensuring a high level of client service
  • Assisting as appropriate with other related office work

We are keen to hear from applicants with experience in the above areas, who have pride in their work and who are looking for a long term role with a forward thinking firm.

Salary will be commensurate with experience, and we offer a firm pension scheme.

Applications in the form of a CV with supporting cover email should be sent to our Staff Director Duncan McFadzean in the first instance – drm@elpamsolicitors.co.uk. These will then be discussed with our Ferry Road Property Director Bob Arbuthnott before decisions are made on interview etc.
