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. 

We are now seeking a secretary who can support the team in delivering this excellent service.  The successful candidate will provide professional, proactive support to the team enabling them to remain organised and to work efficiently and effectively.

What we’re looking for

You will be very well organised with 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.

What you’ll have

With some previous property work experience, 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. 

What we have

We believe that our people are our most important asset, and are committed to supporting our teams, cultivating a healthy culture of challenge and expectation with support and care. We invest in our teams and our infrastructure to ensure that we attract and retain talented staff, and are committed to giving all colleagues the opportunity to reach their full potential, with a real focus on training and development.
