What’s important to us? The way in which everyone across the firm contributes to providing our clients with an outstanding level of service. It’s all about building and maintaining client relationships through offering them quality, clear and timely advice.
As a secretary in the Property team you will support fee earners to ensure that these standards are achieved by providing a full secretarial and administrative service. Your previous experience, together with being highly organised and proactive in the management of correspondence, telephone calls and financial information, will help you build trust and rapport with the fee earners you support, others within the firm, and our clients.
The role requires secretarial experience and advanced level IT skills in Microsoft Office, together with familiarity in other IT systems such as digital dictation. You must have experience of working in a busy property department of a legal firm; knowledge and experience of land registry practice and procedure to make applications to the land registry as well as SDLT returns. You will also have a confident manner, excellent organisation, diary management and communication skills.
This is a rewarding and varied role which offers you the opportunity to build a long term career in our firm.
