Legal Secretary - Civil Litigation - Full Time
Minton Morrill Solicitors have an excellent opportunity for a secretary to join our busy, city centre office. This leading litigation practice is ranked highly in both the Legal 500 and Chambers' Guide to the Legal Profession as well as holding Lexcel accredition and both Civil and Crime Legal Aid Contracts.
The Civil Litigation department comprises: Clinical Negligence, Civil Liberties (Inquests/Actions against Police), Court of Protection, Social Welfare (Public Law/Housing/Community Care) and Private Client.
The postholder will be primarily assigned to the Clinical Negligence team, but may be required to provide ad-hoc support to other teams/departments as required. The role involves contact with clients and third parties via the telephone as well as diary management, document production and maintenance of filing and quality systems. There is also a requirement to provide ad-hoc lunch/holiday cover for our switchboard/reception on a rota system.
The successful applicant should be able to demonstrate a high degree of accuracy and attention to detail in their production of documents and in the maintenance of filing and other systems. All our staff are therefore required to maintain high standards of client care and adherence to policies and procedures. Experience of civil litigation and of clinical negligence work in particular would be advantageous.
The Practice uses Bighand's digital dictation products and Advanced Legal's ALB Practice Management Software and so familiarity with one or both of these systems, although not essential, would be an advantage.
