Office Assistant – Residential Property, London

Working as an Office Assistant you’ll provide administrative and secretarial support to our London Residential Property Team. Working as part of a dynamic and fun team, you’ll contribute to providing an outstanding client experience by progressing cases in the most efficient manner.

You’ll support the whole team in the management of their caseloads and all necessary administrative tasks, working closely with the Conveyancing Assistants. It’s essential that you have legal secretarial training and familiarity with case management systems. You’ll assist with the opening of new instructions, financial transactions, checking deeds and notices and preparing related documentation, maintaining accurate and up–to-date records on systems as well as preparing correspondence. You must be able to work with accuracy to undertake general administrative tasks and financial tasks, whilst coordinating with our central services team to ensure that all documents are produced to set timescales.

Given the nature of the role, you’ll be a confident communicator and strong team player, enthusiastic and willing to learn. As part of your role, you may liaise directly with clients as well as fee earners in other teams (including risk and finance teams) to discuss matter administration. You’ll be able to work in an organised and efficient manner to set up client appointments, conference calls and other meetings, as well as also supporting client events as requested.

Ideally, you’ll be working towards a CILEX qualification or a legal secretarial qualification. You must also be able to demonstrate strong administrative, written and numerical skills and be able to work to deadlines, reacting positively to changing priorities in a fast-paced environment. If you are interested in developing your conveyancing skills in a friendly and supportive team, we would love to hear from you and can promise you a bright future.
