  • The opportunity to be part of a growing firm committed to developing its people
  • Friendly and supportive team
  • Free onsite parking

Our client, a down-to-earth, law firm with fantastic flexibility, is looking for a Family Legal Assistant to join its successful team in Newton-le-Willows.

Not only will you be exposed to high-quality work and work closely alongside more experienced fee-earners, but you’ll have lots of opportunities to develop at this friendly, employee-focussed firm.

Leaders at the firm strongly believe in rewarding great performance – if you’re earned a salary review, you’ll get one no matter what time of year it is. You’ll also accrue annual leave the longer you work there and will enjoy free parking and life assurance.

In the role, you’ll support the Director of the family department as they deal with a range of private family matters. You’ll have lots of client contact and provide secretarial/administrative support within the team by way of document creation, file opening and closing, file administration, photocopying, dictation and diary management.

You might already be working in a Legal Assistant within a family team, although family law experience is not essential. Alternatively, you might be working in a paralegal, secretarial or admin position. If you have a good work ethic, are keen to learn and have strong organisational and communication skills, this might just be the role for you.
