  • Competitive salary
  • Be part of a growing Legal 500 law firm
  • The potential for a training contract later down the line
  • Exposure to interesting, HNW matters as you support partners and lawyers

This is an exciting opportunity for a Legal Secretary to join a highly regarded, full-service firm with offices across the North West.

You will support an experienced team of Legal 500-ranked solicitors, handling wills, probate, trusts and estate matters in the firm’s Chester office.

In your day-to-day role, you’ll carry out a range of secretarial tasks, such as the production and processing of legal documents and correspondence and dictation. You’ll also carry out general team admin like photocopying and scanning, manage the diaries of fee earners and handle telephone enquiries.

You may already be working in a legal secretary role (perhaps from a private client, real estate or medical background). Alternatively, you might be a law or LPC graduate with strong admin skills looking for a position where you’ll get exposure to lots of interesting and high-quality wills, trusts and tax matters.

If you’re looking to develop your legal career, there will be opportunities for you to do so at this firm, as it offers an unrivalled career path for its lawyers.

The firm also has a fantastic employee retention record, and offers enhanced annual leave allowance and pension provision, a healthcare scheme, death in service and a subsidised parking scheme.
