Legal Secretary - Residential Conveyancing

Peterborough Office Based with WFH Options

£19,000 - £25,000 - the range is due to opening the opportunity up to people without legal experience

If you are a Legal Secretary who is looking to work in a positive and rewarding role then I suggest you have a look at this role, working for a Top Tier firm that makes employee engagement and well being a top priority.

The department is busy, positive and very proactive so you will be playing a vital role in the success of the department which will be rewarded.

I am looking to speak to a Legal Secretary who has worked within Residential Conveyancing before and understands how process-driven the department is. You will be fully involved with caseloads and helping to ensure the smooth running of the department.

Daily Tasks:

  • Supporting fee earner with open cases
  • Audio dictation and typing
  • Meeting and greeting all visitors
  • Handling all enquires into the department
  • Collecting monthly expenses and processing
  • Diary Management
  • Inbox management
  • Organising the team to ensure deadlines are hit
  • Keeping clients up to date with progress
  • Creating and amending letters, contracts and instructions
  • Archiving files and filing
  • The organisation of the department

To be successful we are looking for:

  • Experience as a Legal Secretary ideally but not essential
  • Previous knowledge of the Residential Conveyancing department would be great in an ideal world but we can look at other legal experience or maybe you have been another type of secretary maybe in the medical field?
  • Speedy Audio Typist
  • Positive attitude
  • Enjoy working as part of a team and like to be involved
  • Exceptional Organisation skills
  • Work well under pressure
  • Proactive

We also have roles available for Private Client and Paralegals so please get in touch if you have a legal background and would like to explore new options. Thank you
