COMPANY: BRIDGE LEGAL
JOB TYPE: Permanent, FullTime
SALARY: Competitive West End
Our client is a highly regarded, dynamic West End firm. We've dealt with them for many years and feedback from candidates placed there has always been extremely positive. They're a relaxed, progressive and supportive practice.
They're now looking for an experienced legal secretary to join their commercial litigation team, assisting fee earners with matters of varying size and complexity. The ideal candidate will probably have 10 years or more gained in a similar environment i.e. as a secretary supporting the commercial litigation team in a central London practice.
Candidates should be used to being flexible depending on workload within the department and be able to offer a proactive response to the needs of fee earners.
You will need excellent administration skills including file management and general office management, as well as experience of document production i.e. using appropriate software and available resources including typing from audio or manuscript using house and non-house style documents.
Excellent dictation and strong proof reading skills are an absolute must and you will also be required to liaise with Counsels' clerks and prepare organise trial bundles for partners and fee earners, among various other duties.
This is a great opportunity for an experienced secretary to find a home in a very friendly, forward-thinking environment. Whilst this is technically a full-time role, there may be the possibility of some flexibility on working hours, though this is very much dependent on the needs of the department.
