Legal Secretary – Family Department

Hart Reade LLP are seeking to recruit a full time legal secretary to work for a Partner(s) in our Eastbourne Family Department.

Applicants should have excellent secretarial skills including fast accurate audio typing and good knowledge of Microsoft Office (Word, Outlook and Excel).  Experience of using a case management system would be an advantage but not essential as training will be provided.

The role requires someone who is highly organised, with a keen attention to detail and who thrives working within a team.

Candidates will be required to have good written and spoken English and the ability to communicate well with clients, colleagues and other external contractors.  We pride ourselves on the client care we provide; therefore, applicants should be confident and personable both on the telephone and face to face, and willing to go ‘the extra mile’.

The successful candidate will be adaptable, motivated and prepared to work hard in a busy working environment.  Previous experience of working in family law is essential.
