AllAboutLaw is not just a jobs website. It has lots of information about legal careers generally.
The Stephen James Partnership is a Berkshire-based recruitment company that has a specialist paralegal recruitment section. In particular, the Partnership is unusual in that it will take on as candidates paralegals with less than six months prior paralegal experience. It prides itself on the personal service it gives to paralegal candidates.

Badenoch & Clark are one of the UK's leading recruitment companies. The legal jobs they offer range from paralegal jobs through to partner and head of legal. You'll find legal practice jobswith high street practices, top 100 law firm jobs, diverse in house legal jobs, and legal finance jobs. In the public sector Badenoch & Clark provide legal recruitment for local authority, government, voluntary sector and not-for-profit organisations.
We are also delighted to be working with specialist recruiters, Baby Barristers (www.babybarristers.co.uk). As their name implies, Baby Barristers help those students who have passed the BPTC/BVC but not secured pupillage, to get work as paralegals.
Twosteps tells us that it "is an agency free jobsite for paralegals, this means all the jobs advertised are direct from employers not from recruitment agencies. Employers use twosteps because they don’t charge any commission, this can make them more cost effective than using recruitment consultants. Jobseekers are using twosteps because all jobs are direct from employers not from recruitment consultants, which not only means you can apply direct to an employer it also means all roles are individual, genuine and still open. Paralegals can search for jobs locally, nationally or globally. Twosteps is also more than just a jobsite, it is a community for the legal industry. You can set up alerts for your dream role, view free salary surveys and reports, browse the career centre or read the latest news."
