The Firm

Our client is a multi-sited law firm with offices in London, Essex, Surrey, Kent, Sussex, West Sussex and Somerset, who are continuing to grow.

They aspire to have more specialist solicitors, in more areas of law, in more offices, on more high streets, speaking more languages and accessible in more ways than any other firm in the country. The firm are now looking to recruit a Receptionist/Admin Assistant to join their team in Hove.

  • To prepare correspondence and documents through audio-typing and word processing when necessary
  • Prepare any room for meetings, if necessary, and for the tidying and clearance of the room at the end of the meeting, providing refreshments when asked to do so
  • To provide support to Legal Secretaries, as and when required

What you will need?

  • Previous receptionist or administrative experience would be beneficial but not essential
  • A keen eye for detail
