Job Details

As part of our ongoing technology initiatives, we’ll be implementing a new AI tool to support with our case review process, alongside improving our case management systems. You’ll play a key role in supporting us with developing the use of the machine learning technology, whilst managing a small caseload of probate cases from start to finish.

•   own a small caseload of around 15 complex probate cases end to end
•   use our case management system to make sure information is recorded accurately and engage with clients mainly by the telephone and email 
•   work collaboratively with expert support from the team to continually develop your legal skills, administrative support will also be provided 
•   mentor more junior members of the team
•   support with the continuous improvement of our case management system 

This role would suit people who have

•   qualified as a solicitor or legal executive with significant experience in private client, or qualified in any area of law with experience of implementing AI solutions in a legal context 
•   a keen interest in artificial intelligence and continuously improving our offering through innovative technology 
•   the ability to use your initiative and effectively prioritise and organise your work in a fast-paced and high-volume environment 
•   a client-focused approach with the ability to build positive relationships in a remote setting

Why Co-op?

Our legal team is the number one market leader in probate. Here you’ll do work that matters. Co-op is an organisation with a purpose beyond profit, and by contributing to our success you’ll help us to realise our vision of co-operating for a fairer world. You’ll also get a package that includes:
