This outstanding firm offers fantastic exposure to the corporate world in a supportive and encouraging environment.

Working in the Litigation department, this Junior Legal Secretary role represents an excellent opportunity to be a part of a bustling team working closely with the current Legal PAs initially.

Once settled, you will support your own allocation of fee earners, across a number of day to day tasks including: extensive diary management, organising client files, arranging meetings and some document work. Emphasis on the word 'some' as luckily the fee earners are all quite self-sufficient and will do the bulk of the work themselves. That said, high proficiency in all Microsoft Office packages would be very beneficial.

For a more detailed list of the duties, please see below:

  • To assist the department as appropriate, dealing with travel and accommodation arrangements, the management of fee earners' diaries and arrangement of client meetings, seminars and other relevant functions
  • Administrative tasks such as opening new files/matters, closing files and archiving
  • Filing of expenses, issuing proceedings, post, photocopying, faxing and other administration duties
  • Support the financial management of the department, primarily billing and debt collection
  • Provide an effective, timely and efficient service to the firm's clients
  • Maintain excellent service standards and high client satisfaction
  • Uphold high professional standards within the Department including producing quality documentation
  • Communicate with clients and other contacts in a professional and courteous manner.

This is the Junior Legal Secretary role that appeals to all with Litigation experience:

If you're working locally and looking to make the transition to an ambitious Legal practice;

If you're a Team Assistant or Administration Assistant looking for that next step on the career ladder;

If you'd prefer to work at a Medium sized Law firm that emphasises inclusion and team work;

If you'd like to work in a busy role, picking up diverse Legal knowledge, learning from other Secretaries and expanding your CV…!
