Due to the nature of this role, I am seeking flexible and organised individuals who are happy to work across offices as and when required. The firm are extremely friendly and their current float secretaries use the opportunities to gain further knowledge/experience in various disciplines and get to grips with new areas of law. A very varied position requiring a Legal Secretary who is willing to put their hands to everything.
