Legal Trainer.
 
An unusual but exciting opportunity has arisen for a Legal Trainer to join our client's long-established apprenticeships provider.

Background

This training provider has approx 2000 apprentices across the UK working as paralegals and non-qualified legal staff within law firms. 
 
The training provided includes CILEX training and the CLC amongst others, but you will not need to be an expert in any given area of law.
 
The apprentices receive technical training through online resources, one to one mentoring, webinars and self-study. You will not give technical legal training, but instead create training plans, mentor, supervise and support them on the softer skills they need to be successful in a law firm and with their studies. 

The Role

As a Legal Trainer, you will easily build relationships with both the apprentice and their supervisor, with the latter likely being your long term contract at the firm. You will work closely together to ensure the apprentice achieves their full potential. 
 
Above all, you will be passionate about helping people achieve. 
 
This role will only suit candidates who have worked in legal private practice, or perhaps a local authority legal department. 

You may or may not have a legal qualification yourself, but will be familiar with how it is to work and thrive within a legal environment.  

You will have a naturally positive and inspiring personality. Those with experience supervising and mentoring others are encouraged to apply. 
 
In this Legal Trainer role, you will organise your own diary and have autonomy. You will work within a national team and be part of a smaller East Anglia based sub-team. You will have a strong support network.  
 
You will need to be a driver with your own car. This is a nationally based business, and demand is growing in the East Anglia area, so you will be based around law firms. 
 
Excellent salary up to £30k + tablet, iPhone, 5% firm pension contributions and expenses. 
 
It is different... and won't suit everyone, but perhaps if you are looking to leave legal practice, but continue to share your legal skills and knowledge gained along the way then get in touch. You may be an ex-lawyer, or returning to the legal field after a short break.
