Job Title
Legal Secretary
Contract Type
Full Time

The following role is to start mid-June 2021 and is a 12 month maternity cover contract…

Our client is a world famous US law firm, steeped in a rich history. The London office has grown exponentially over the past 3 years and shows no signs of slowing down. So although this role is officially a 12 month maternity cover, I have been informed that there is every chance that the successful person will be kept on as a permanent staff member at the end.

Working in the Funds Group, you will be assisting 2 Partners and 7 Associates (although I have ben told that the Associates are pretty self-sufficient). The Partners generate an awful lot of work, BD being a forte of theirs, so there will be plenty of chance for you to get involved with the creation of PowerPoint presentations and Marketing. The team focuses on one main thing - exceptional client service. You will be integral in ensuring this is maintained so you will need to be confident, articulate and have strong relationship building skills as there will be considerable client contact. The role will be a full 360 affair with typing/amending of documents/e-mails and correspondence, handling multiple diaries including all meeting bookings, booking of flights, hotels, restaurants and transfers as well as deal with a variety of ad hoc administration and personal work.

To be considered, you will be a Legal Secretary with a minimum of 2 years' experience including exposure at Partner level. The area of law you have worked in is not the most important thing. What is, is that you have the right attitude including the willingness to roll up your sleeves and take on whatever task is needed to get the job done.

The firm itself has a real special feel to it and I think that is because everyone there is pulling in the same direction - and that direction very clearly seems to be pointing skyward!
