- try not to get caught up in bureaucracy
- aren’t scared to invest in technology
- have good systems and precedents
- have a light modern office with some standing desks, double monitors and minimal physical files

Basically we’re a great place to work!
LEGAL SECRETARY – INTERMEDIATE POSITION (April/May 2018)
Our team is growing. We need an additional legal secretary to join us.
Of course you’ll need all the usual stuff that everyone wants, like faultless attention to detail, be a team player with a can-do attitude, be super organised, proficient with Word & Excel, be a hard worker, and have great listening skills. All these things are extremely important. But we also need someone who believes in great client service and is really committed to helping their authors achieve their goals.
This is not a junior position. Whilst you do not need to have experience in property, you will need experience as a legal secretary. You will support three very busy authors: A director, an intermediate solicitor and a junior solicitor. You will will work in the areas of commercial acquisitions, sales and funding, commercial leasing, residential property development, construction, business sales and purchases, along with a bit of general conveyancing.
If our firm sounds like a place you would thrive in please send your CV to the practice manager, Rachael Stevenson.
