Planning Legal Secretary.

An exciting opportunity has arisen for a legal secretary who is looking to join a highly successful law firm based in the heart of Manchester city centre.
 
You will be working for one of the UK's leading commercial law firms, which is now seeking a dynamic legal secretary to join their busy planning department. You will ideally have experience of working in a planning team, either within a law firm or a surveying/planning practice.
 
Other than having a solid legal secretarial background, the ideal candidate will have highly efficient diary management skills, a confident attitude, and a pro-active approach to work. You will have strong communication and organisation skills, and be able to work under pressure and meet deadlines.
 
Duties & Responsibilities:
  • Audio typing (Big Hand)
  • Typing and drafting correspondence
  • Amending documents
  • Diary Management
  • Booking meetings
  • Assisting with, and drafting, bills
  • Arranging and booking travel and accommodation
  • Opening, maintaining, and closing files
Previous legal secretarial experience gained within a commercial practice area would be a distinct advantage, but is not essential. As you will be working with a national, full-service law firm, you will receive a competitive basic salary, along with the benefits associated with working in a top tier law firm.
