***CALLING ALL LEGAL SECRETARIES, PARALEGALS OR LEGAL ASSISTANTS***

Do you have experience within a legal environment, maybe as an Administrator or an Assistant within a Private Client environment, and now looking for something slightly different?
I am working with my client, an established firm of Solicitors with multiple offices within Kent, to recruit a Will Writer for a new full time Permanent position.

The firm are a long established full service firm. They have Legal 500 status and the Lexcel Award which shows the professional service they provide to their clients.

Due to expansion within the Wills and Probate department at their Bexleyheath office, they are currently looking for a new Will Writer.

This role would suit possibly a Legal Secretary or Paralegal who is looking to progress within this area of law.

The main duties include:
Engaging with client, promoting the firm and their Easywill package
Taking instructions from clients who call at the office without appointment enquiring about straightforward Wills
Preparing, explaining and submitting draft documents for approval as quickly as possible
Ensuring all enquires outside of the usual scope, involving Trusts, IHT advice etc. are referred to Senior members as soon as possible.

You will need to have a pleasant and courteous manner whilst being efficient and co-operative.

You will need the ability to work unsupervised and have a conscientious approach to your work.

Alongside this you will need good interpersonal skills, be PC literate and some experience of working within a Probate dept. either as a Legal Secretary, Paralegal or Assistant.

You will also need to have a driving licence and access to a car as you will be expected to visit clients at the other offices and at their homes.

The hours for this role are Monday - Friday 9am - 5.30 and the firm offer a range of benefits including 25 days holiday + Bank Holidays, pension scheme, childcare vouchers, healthcare cashback scheme etc.
My client is keen to interview so please apply today for immediate consideration
