Job description

We are recruiting a Junior Clerk / Office Assistant to join our team. The role is busy and varied. You will be providing both legal and administrative support to barristers, preparing legal materials, delivering papers to Court and data entry. You will also provide more general office support, such as answering the phones and dealing with post. The team is friendly and fun, and you will be well supported, working closely with other staff members.

Career progression potential is excellent – the role is a stepping stone to legal practice management, as well as other business roles such as marketing, business administration and client services.
