Solicitor/Chartered Legal Executive or Experienced Paralegal – Motor Fraud – Birmingham

Please Note: The application deadline for this job has now passed.

Job Introduction

The Motor Counter-Fraud Team is a multiple award-winning team. It has a reputation for not only defending the claims themselves (the main aim is full repudiation), but also for proactively tackling those organisations and professional enablers behind the claims, particularly for organised fraud. The team adopts a collaborative approach where both reactive and proactive investigation is promoted, working hand in hand with our clients and agencies such as IFED and the new Regional Fraud teams.


As well as offering high levels of flexibility and a great work life balance, we offer a well-rounded remuneration package (which includes private medical insurance, income protection insurance and discounted gym membership, amongst many other benefits) alongside real opportunities for growth and progression. We actively encourage colleagues to make use of our professional funding scheme to complete legal or business qualifications relevant to your role.


At DAC Beachcroft our Flex Forward policy means that we have relaxed core hours and colleagues are able to flex their hours across the day and week. For more information please review the following link -


There are regular in person and remote social events organised for colleagues at DAC Beachcroft , not to mention the opportunity to get involved in a range of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) activities, including volunteering or becoming an ally for one of our inclusion and diversity or business network groups.


We are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, which aligns closely to our cultural principles (Determined, Clear, Creative and Supportive). If you are excited about this role and being part of our culture, but your past experience does not align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyway. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles!

Role Responsibility

Handling a caseload of predominantly litigated claims, with an appropriate level of supervision, potentially across a number of different clients.

The Ideal Candidate

  • Experienced case handler (Paralegal / Litigation Executive, Legal Executive or Solicitor), preferably with a strong litigation background gained within a personal injury environment
  • Knowledge of the Civil Procedure Rules
  • Expertise in fraud is beneficial, but not essential, as the successful candidate will be fully trained in dealing with fraud cases
  • Confident negotiator and communicator

  • Ability to work on own initiative without close supervision, but also a team player with a collegiate approach to knowledge sharing and problem solving, particularly in the case of multi-site clients which are supported across the team

  • Demonstrates alignment with the Firm’s Cultural Principles (Clear, Creative, Determined and Supportive).
