An opportunity has arisen for someone to join a local law firm as a Legal Secretary, working specifically within their Family law department. This would be supporting two solicitors across a range of work including cohabitation, separation, divorce, children issues and child abduction. Working within a supportive, friendly and easy-going team, this opportunity would suit someone who enjoys more of the personal touch and a less corporate environment, where you would feel like a part of a family. With a traditional brand and a positive working environment, this is a great opportunity for someone with legal secretarial experience, although we may look at people who also have a more general secretarial background. This position is ideally to start at the very beginning of January 2019, but we will also consider people on a notice period.

 

Tasks include:

  • Creation of documents and letters
  • Record management and preparation of court bundles
  • Handling enquiries both over the phone and via email, as well a face-to-face enquiries
  • Diary management and appointment booking
  • Attending meetings as required
  • Working to strict compliance measures
  • Audio and copy typing

 

Skills and experience required:

  • Ideally, experience as a Legal Secretary for 12 months+ would be advantageous
  • A self-motivated, resilient and organised approach
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Good prioritising skills
  • Ability to keep calm under pressure
  • Good computer skills, including MS Word, Excel, Outlook and PowerPoint

 

Benefits:

  • 25 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Extra annual leave at Christmas, at the discretion of the Partners
  • A supportive, professional, yet easy-going environment
