This is the perfect role for an Administration professional, ideally with experience in a legal practice, to further your career with a forward-thinking and well known brand.

Our vision is to be considered the first choice of regional law firm for people and businesses in the South West and national experts in our specialist sectors.

This vision sets out where we want to be as a firm, so we go out of our way to make sure our colleagues understand it and believe in it. It is our guiding light for making important decisions and helps us to all pull in the same direction for the benefit of our clients and colleagues.

We know that happy teams are successful teams, which is why we reward and celebrate hard work, support the development of staff and ensure that everyone feels valued.

Here, you will be encouraged to build on your existing expertise, challenge yourself and pursue your professional goals as part of a collaborative team.

The Role

Our busy property team provides a bespoke conveyancing service across England and Wales tailored to meet our clients' needs.

We have a large and expanding team of skilled and respected property lawyers who pride themselves on their level of service, combining a traditional personal approach with speed and efficiency using the latest technology. A significant amount of work is received through recommendations from clients.

Additionally, your role will involve:

- Opening, closing and archiving client files
- Dealing with email or telephone-based client enquiries
- Arranging appointments; obtaining documents from the Land Registry
- Preparing contracts, transfers, Stamp Duty Land Tax returns and standard correspondence
- Applying for searches
- Lodging SDLT returns and preparing and lodging Land Registry applications online
- Assisting lawyers generally with administrative responsibilities

About You

You will be confident in communicating with our clients and, under our lawyers' direction, will be comfortable ensuring that clients have the information they need if our lawyers are engaged elsewhere.

You will be very well organised. You will have a 'can-do' attitude and will be happy to adapt to the requirements of the tasks facing you. Ideally you will be able to respond to busy periods cheerfully and efficiently providing all-round secretarial support.

Other organisations may call this role Legal Administrator, Legal Assistant, Legal Secretary, Practice Secretary, or Property Legal Secretary.

We aim to take a flexible approach to our working hours and welcome applications from anyone who feels suited to the role but would like to discuss this.

The closing date for this role is the 10th February 2021.
