A rare opportunity has just arisen for an experienced Legal Secretary to join the Private Client team of an award-winning Devon/Somerset legal practice, in its Chard offices.
To be seriously considered for this role you must have at least 12 months' experience of working as a Legal Secretary, preferably with some Private Client experience (Wills, LPAs, Probate etc), although consideration will also be given to excellent Legal Secretaries from other disciplines, who can demonstrate a real interest in Private Client matters.
This is a busy role and duties will be varied and interesting. You must have above average audio typing speeds (60wpm), a superb telephone manner when dealing with clients and other professionals, strong organisational skills and experience of diary management.
Typical responsibilities will include:
  • Opening, closing and archiving client files
  • Audio and copy typing
  • Proof reading and updating dictated work
  • Dealing with client enquiries via email and phone
  • Document production
  • Other administrative tasks, including post
It goes without saying that you will be a real team player, happy to help others out as necessary, with a superb eye for detail and a calm, unflappable manner.
The successful candidate can expect a competitive salary, according to experience, and generous additional benefits.
If you are a Legal Secretary and are keen to find out more then please apply without delay. Of course, your application will be treated in the strictest of confidence and we would love to be able to help secure your next career move.
