Family Legal Secretary – Generous benefits package

Apply now

We are looking for a Legal Secretary to join a busy and friendly family law team in Sheffield, working directly for an experienced family law partner.

You’ll receive a particularly generous benefits package, including up to 28 days holiday plus bank holidays and discretionary Christmas closure, a flexitime scheme that will enable you to take up to four flex days per year, contributory pension scheme, death in service, recognition awards, a social fund, health scheme, cycle to work scheme and staff savings scheme.

In the role, you’ll provide administration support for a busy legal advice team, ensuring that all work is completed in a timely and effective manner while adhering to all quality standards. This will include handling communication by telephone, letter and email, taking new enquiry calls and booking appointments, and carrying our general office duties.

The right candidate will have experience working in a similar role within a law firm, but experience of working within a family law team is not essential.
