Legal Executive Jobs

Legal Executive Jobs at Orchard Legal

Legal executives are fee-earning qualified lawyers who undertake similar work to solicitors, specialising in a specific legal area such as litigation or conveyancing. The day-to-day role of a legal executive is similar to that of a solicitor.

The main difference between solicitors and legal executives is that the training of legal executives is narrower. Legal executives have studied to the same level as a solicitor, but they have specialised in a particular area of law and completed fewer subjects overall.

If you have at least 4 GCSEs at grade 4 (C) or above in English and maths, you can take the following to qualify : CILEx Level 3 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice (takes 2 to 3 years to complete)

Are you looking for legal executive jobs, perhaps to move jobs, or are you looking to recruit a legal executive? Then Orchard can help.

We are always on the lookout for experienced legal executives covering the following areas:-

  • Conveyancing, residential and commercial
  • Family and matrimonial law
  • Criminal law
  • Immigration law
  • Wills and probate law
  • Litigation law
  • Commercial law

We recruit in Central London, Herts, Beds, Bucks, Essex as well as other counties in the South East of England. We only work with law firms that are committed to the development of their staff; organisation that we’d recommend to our friends and family.

The organisations that we recruit for enjoy a 3 to 1, interview to hire ratio. This is simply because we take a great deal of time to understand the culture, demands and structure of each unique practice. We assess each legal assistants experience and background and carry out psychometric profiles. When appropriate we talk to previous employers for clarification. Importantly, we interview face to face or via Skype. Sadly, many recruiters omit this vital element of the selection process.

The Orchard Legal Division is headed by our Senior Recruiter, Kelly Finley
