Legal Secretary Family Team – Fresh start in 2023 – Friendly firm 



Our client, a growing firm with a fantastic reputation based in Ashton-under-Lyne, Tameside, is looking for a legal secretary to join its friendly family law team.  

The firm is open to applicants with secretarial experience in any aspect of family law, whether that be private family, public family or childcare law.  

In the role, you will be providing secretarial support to the lawyers and fee earners in the family law team, including document creation, file opening and closing, file administration, court bundle preparation, telephone communication with clients and other third parties and diary management. 

Realm has been the recruitment partner for this Tameside firm for several years and – hand on heart – they are an absolute dream to work with. They are extremely proactive in remaining competitive with pay, bonus schemes and benefits. As a result, this firm has a very happy team and an incredibly high employee retention rate.   

The many team members we have placed here enjoy their work, benefitting from a genuinely lovely team, fantastic benefits package (which includes a bonus scheme, enhanced sick pay, enhanced pension scheme and increasing holiday allowance) and manageable caseload, leaving plenty of room for an excellent work/life balance.  

This regional heavyweight is proud of its East Manchester roots, and rightly so – it is comfortably the largest firm in the area. Their offices are also easily commutable from North, South and Central Manchester with great transport links, including quick access to the M60.   

The firm has a clear progression framework and regularly review team salaries and promotability. Plus, it is on an impressive growth track and has added to each of its teams in the past 12 months, so team members feel positive and part of something successful.  

If you currently work for a smaller high street or regional firm and want to be part of something bigger, with more opportunities for progression – or perhaps even just want a better quality of life working as a valued member of a lovely team – we highly recommend you get in touch with us. 

For a fresh start in 2023, contact us today!
