Legal Secretary - Private Client
About the role and team
At Anthony Collins Solicitors, our secretaries are highly valued members of the department and are recognised as critical to the success of the team and the firm as a whole. If you are committed to making a real difference to clients through creating strong relationships and providing an outstanding level of service, then you may be just the person we are looking for.
As a secretary in the Private Client team you will proactively assist 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 confidence and rapport with the fee earners you assist, others within the firm, and our clients. The work will be varied, ranging from managing diaries, drafting and amending documents, and digital dictation. With proficient IT skills, you will be used to working in a fast-paced environment and to meeting deadlines. Collaborating closely with your colleagues will ensure your success in the department.
This role will primarily be to support our childcare team but there will be opportunity to work across the rest of the private client sub-teams which includes family, matrimonial, mental health and Wills and Estate planning.
About the candidate
The ideal candidate will have administration and secretarial skills and experience, ideally within a private client department or childcare team, will be enthusiastic, keen to continue to develop and willing to get involved and take on whatever may come their way. Being able to contribute to a busy department as a reliable team player is essential, as well as having the ability to confidently and sensitively build rapport with clients and third parties. Admin or secretarial qualifications are preferred but not essential.
