A brilliant opportunity has arisen for a Legal Secretary to continue their development at one of the world's best performing US Law firms based in the City whose staff retention is second to none.

Working in a buzzy environment, you will work across the Corporate department, specifically within Private Equity, supporting a mixture of fee earners. Previous experience within a law firm is essential, ideally a US one too. As for Legal knowledge, a good understanding of Corporate Law, ideally Private Equity, would get you off to a good start!

Based within clear view of the magnificent St Paul's Cathedral, the surrounding area is simply stunning and you'll have no problem finding places to go on the 3 days you're in the office.

The role requires excellent secretarial, IT, administrative, organisational and personal skills. Good communication and 'soft' skills are a must due to the size of the firm and level of client involvement.

This position would suit someone who already has some experience supporting their own allocation but is now looking for that next step on the career ladder.
