Own Transport Essential

We are seeking an experienced Audio Legal Secretary with a Clinical Negligence background. Suitable candidates will have experience of dealing with claimants and will have experience of working with legal aid cases.

Consideration will also be given to candidates with a background in Personal Injury, who have dealt with a high volume of claimants. A good understanding of medical and legal terminology is required as accuracy is very important when typing reports.

We may also consider candidates who have experience in Litigation, dealing with a high volume of contentious cases and with a good understanding of reports, timescales, limitation dates etc.
 
It is essential that candidates have good MS Office skills, and have fast, accurate audio typing skills.  The role involves a heavy workload of typing, so speed and accuracy are of paramount importance.  You will also be expected to use Excel to populate, filter and sort spreadsheets, and you will be expected to be able to use basic formulas.
 
You will be required to provide secretarial support to a very busy Fee Earner and will be flexible enough in your approach, to help out other colleagues when needed.  We are looking for someone with a really positive, “can do” attitude who is willing to assist others where required.

This is a full time permanent job, working 36 hours per week, Monday to Friday.

Please note that candidates MUST have OWN TRANSPORT due to the location.
