  • You will be able to confidently draft Wills and Lasting Power of Attorney's, and have experience in large estate administration.
  • Use the case management system to make sure information is recorded accurately

  • Experience of working on own initiative with minimum supervision
  • Experience of establishing, building and sustaining professional relationships with clients and other contacts
  • Experience of managing own workload, meeting deadlines and prioritising appropriately
  • Excellent communication skills
  • A methodical and detailed approach with a high level of accuracy
  • An empathetic and caring approach
  • Self-motivated, proactive and forward thinking
  • Excellent IT skills


Their probate team is friendly and collaborative. This role would suit a fee-earner seeking a new challenge in a progressive firm with clear career progression.

My client prides themselves on their genuine and supportive workplace culture, ensuring that everyone feels valued and heard. They have tight-knit teams that provide a working environment where colleagues feel true job satisfaction and have access to the right training and development opportunities.

Full-time and part-time working options are available.


What's on offer?

Among other great benefits they can offer:

  • Friendly, supportive, and progressive working culture
  • A position in one of the best Private Client teams in Essex

  • Generous holiday entitlement
