Support staff are highly regarded at Chubb Bulleid and we are not looking for someone who is simply a great typist, but an individual who can work on their own initiative and take responsibility for working well with our Clients by getting things done.

We are looking to appoint an experienced Legal Secretary to provide support to our Residential Property Department in Somerton.

We are looking for someone who can operate with professionalism and expertise, as you will be liaising with both Clients and other professionals.  You will be methodical, organised and flexible in your approach to work.

You will:

Take responsibility for all the customary secretarial functions including the use of a digital transcription system to create a range of documents in line with our house style, together with the preparation of draft bills and other financial documentation.

You will ensure that client files are both opened and closed and demonstrate effective file management including location and retrieval.  You will manage emails and correspondence (internal and external) and draft replies to routine correspondence when required.

You will be just as happy to undertake an online search as you are talking to Clients over the phone and in person.

About you:

You will have proven secretarial experience within a legal environment, ideally gained within a Residential Property department.  You must be confident to work without direct supervision and be able to demonstrate organisational intelligence and communication skills.  You will possess solid Microsoft Office software and formatting skills.

Most importantly you will be keen to provide a high level of professional secretarial support working with team members to provide Clients with a high standard of service.

What we can offer:

A competitive salary, a discretionary twice yearly bonus, 22 days holiday plus bank holidays and pension scheme.
