Company profile

In this Legal Editorial Assistant graduate role, you will be joining a business that creates learning materials for law students – and are passionate about making sure that their guides are the best available anywhere on the market. Their mission is to create study materials that tell students what they really need to know for exam success, without all the waffle.

They are a small team of qualified solicitors and other professionals. They author, edit and publish over 35 guides for law students on the LLB, GDL, PGDL and LPC courses. Most of these are updated annually, and we also have plans to create new SQE guides and other online learning materials.

Job description

In this Graduate Law job, you will be helping to edit and improve our existing guides, get new guides ready for publication and generally assist them with marketing and growth. You will need a good eye for detail and a skill for writing and editing. This role has the potential to grow and develop, which could include managing legal contributors, creating new customers or setting operational goals.

Please note: this role will be a completely remote role.

Key responsibilities

In this Graduate Legal Assistant job, your responsibilities will include:

  • Helping us to review and edit our current guides.
  • Supporting the team with legal updates.

  • Working with authors and other members of the team to put new products together.
  • Legal writing
  • Assisting us with marketing, including writing/posting blogs, articles and emails and managing social media posts.
  • Assisting in the operational running of a small, growing business.

Key requirements

  • A graduate from university with a legal background (LLB, GDL, LPC or equivalent).
  • Someone who cares about helping law students get to grips with difficult subjects and who is able to distil complex and technical material into easy to access resources.
  • A self-starter, willing to commit to learning skills for the role without being micro-managed but who knows when to reach out for help.
  • Fantastic attention to detail.
  • Great time-management skills and the ability to prioritise and balance multiple tasks.
  • Previous experience in legal writing, marketing and/or working in a startup is desirable but not essential – if you’re keen to learn then they’re keen to show you.

  • A graduate starting salary of £20,000 - £21,000
  • An exciting opportunity to be involved in all parts of a small and growing business.
  • A role that offers both technical learning and personal development, but also one that really can be shaped by your strengths and skills.
  • Completely remote and pretty flexible working hours.
  • Option (possibly) for some of your work to count towards Qualifying Work Experience (QWE) for the SQE (they are currently reviewing the SRA’s guidelines on this).
