Job Description

The following role is being offered on a 6 month maternity cover basis… Our client is a US law firm and a true market leader in their specialist field. Famed for treating their support staff extremely well, the firm is keen to secure the services of an experienced Legal Secretary (previous Litigation or Corporate Law experience is essential) to assist a Partner and 3 Associates. He is looking for total PA support from both a business and personal perspective (he has two diaries to manage - one for each) and will want his PA to act as gatekeeper for his clients. You will monitor his e-mail inbox to ensure he stays on top of everything, working autonomously to answer mails he does not need to answer himself, will organise extensive (and constantly changing) travel both nationally and internationally and ensure he is where he needs to be when he needs to be there - the successful person will certainly need to stay one step ahead. The Partner has said he will offer as much involvement as his PA wants with only one request in return; that the PA can ensure everything runs seamlessly and makes him, his team and the firm extremely professional and efficient. The role is about as good as it gets and the firm is expanding so you never know, this could turn into something permanent. So if you are a very polished, experienced Legal Secretary/PA with a solid background in Litigation and/or Corporate Law, please send your CV to register your interest.
