Job description

Legal Secretary

A reputable law firm based in Central London is currently seeking an experienced Legal Secretary to join their lively Dispute Resolution team. The office is located in Holborn.

You will be supporting a Partner who specialises in commercial litigation, as well as another solicitor, dealing with a wide range of client-focussed secretarial and administrative work.

You will assist your fee-earners with a variety of administrative tasks, to include monthly billing and file management. You will also assist the wider secretarial team during busy times and help cover absence (and vice versa).

You must have previous dispute resolution secretarial experience, gained in a similar busy legal environment.

You will also have:

  • Commercial awareness and understanding of how your role contributes to the success of the business;
  • Experience of legal billing and good standard of numeracy;
  • Strong IT skills and fast, accurate typing.
  • Good administrative and time management skills;
  • Effective written and spoken English & excellent interpersonal skills
  • A proactive and responsible team approach;
  • A flexible and adaptable style, willingness to develop and to adapt to evolving business needs;
  • A professional, confident approach.

What's on offer:

  • Market led salary of up to £40,000 (dependent on experience)
  • 25 days holiday (plus Bank Holidays)
  • Company pension scheme
  • Prime location with plenty of amenities close by
  • Professional and supportive work environment

Some remote working may be possible in due course, depending on the needs of the team. You will, however, be required to be mostly office-based (and fully so during probation). Therefore, the ideal candidate will live close to Holborn.
