Paralegals, document review & projects
SSQ is at the forefront of the non-qualified legal recruitment market. We specialise in placing paralegals with the leading UK, US and international law firms as well as many of the mid-sized, boutique and regional practices on both a permanent and interim basis.
Paralegal positions differ from role to role and from client to client. We will guide you through a complex and competitive market, helping you to secure the role which best matches your skills and experience. Many of our candidates have become career paralegals, particularly within financial services. A number of our clients are actively recruiting experienced/career paralegals to utilise as fee earners. These roles suit candidates looking for additional responsibility and experience that would have previously only been available to trainees.
Others paralegals we work with have only recently completed a law degree or their LPC/LLM and are looking for their first legal role. A role as a paralegal can often suit a candidate who is waiting to begin their training contract.
Document review & projects
We specialise in placing qualified lawyers and paralegals into large scale document review projects. Our clients often need multiple paralegals and lawyers for such projects at very short notice. Therefore the interview and offer process is often short and we could have you placed on a project within 24-48 hours.
Candidates with language skills, particularly unusual language skills, are in high demand, alongside those with project management and team lead experience. We regularly work on projects that require specialist language skills. For example: Thai, Swahili, Chinese, Hungarian, and Swedish as well French, German and Spanish.
