Legal Secretary or Legal Assistant

Apply now
  • Competitive salary, plus tax-free bonus
  • Employee-owned firm
  • Award-winning family law boutique

A leading family law boutique is recruiting for a Legal Secretary or Legal Assistant to join its award-winning team in Cheshire.

The role comes with a competitive salary, plus the opportunity to top-up your pay substantially with a tax-free bonus.

The firm was one of the first law firms to become employee-owned, which means team members get a say in the direction of the business while taking a quarterly tax-free bonus based on performance.  This rare business model also nurtures an extremely friendly and supportive work environment.

The team specialises in private family work, particularly matrimonial finance, with some private children work too.

Your role will be to provide secretarial support, including telephone and email liaison, plus take responsibility for some administrative duties – but the role is flexible, and you’ll be able to get involved in some light file work if you should wish to.

The right candidate will have existing experience in family law, or a related area of law such as Private Client or Tax.
