Paralegals are paid above market salary for every hour worked. Work hours are collected via our mobile app and paralegals and pay slips are issued fortnightly.
Yegal employs all paralegals casually. You’re effectively hired out to each Client for the duration of each project. We try to match you to jobs that fit around your university commitments. We want you to prioritise your studies.
You tell us when you can work on sign up. Then we get to work, finding you work. Paralegals with wide availability have the best chance of being matched to jobs. If your availability changes you can update your profile accordingly.
Our talent pool is both high quality and diverse. All candidates are subject to pre-screening to ensure a quality outcome for our clients. Our ideal paralegal candidate has a credit average (minimum), some legal experience and wide availability. Students with one or two days per week availability are not our target market.
We ensure all our paralegals are matched to jobs that are consistent with their skills and experience. You’ll receive training from Day 1 from the Client and Yegal is there to support you throughout as well.
Around 85% of our clients require that work be carried out at their place of business. Flexible work arrangements are at the discretion of each Yegal client.
We source candidates from Australia’s leading law schools. We rely heavily on referrals because we believe talented students tend to associate with each other.
Generally speaking, candidates must:
– be in at least their third year of study (assuming undergraduate status)
– carry a Credit Average (University Weighted Average Mark)
– have been exposed to a legal work environment
– demonstrate basic comprehension and attention to detail skills through testing
Our paralegals are highly intelligent University students with a strong desire to put their best forward. Where possible Yegal provides project paralegals with FREE training in your preferred process or software program so they can hit the ground running!
