We are looking for highly capable, experienced Paralegals to join the Infected Blood Inquiry legal team where we can offer a challenging and exciting work environment. The roles will require providing advice to the Chair of the Inquiry on a broad and diverse range of issues. The successful candidates will be responsible for investigating and gathering a broad range of evidence which includes managing a disclosure exercise and taking witness evidence.
The Infected Blood Inquiry was announced by the Prime Minister to provide much needed answers to the thousands who were infected and affected through blood and blood products in the 1970s and 1980s. At least 2,400 people died and thousands more were exposed to hepatitis C and HIV, with life-changing consequences for them and their families.
There will be the opportunity for travel across the UK to gather witness and documentary evidence with members of the Inquiry team.
While previous experience or knowledge may be preferable, the work is likely to involve a rapid learning curve to acquire legal skills and knowledge.
The role will be for an initial 12 month period with the possibility to extend.
Competitive daily rate.
