Location: 1 x Nottingham 1 x Leicester

Job description

We are recruiting two Practice Assistants, one to be based at Nottingham and a second on a fixed term contract (maternity cover, ending Autumn 2024) to be based at Leicester.

No prior legal experienced is necessary and although previous administrative experience for each role is desirable, it is not an essential requirement. These support roles will suit individuals who are looking for a junior admin role.

Duties for each role will include, but are not limited to:
– Organising & entering incoming correspondence onto Chambers systems
– Assisting with the monitoring and distribution of incoming emails
– Dealing with telephone and email enquiries
– Assisting with general administrative duties

We are looking for candidates who show initiative, an ability to work under pressure and who can work as part of a team to ensure Chambers continues to provide a high standard of service to our Barristers and clients. Successful candidates will be reliable, personable and have good communication skills, with an organised approach to the working environment.

The Nottingham position will be within the Criminal Practice Management Team & the Leicester position will be across both our Criminal and Family & Civil Practice Management Teams. Each position attracts a salary of £24,000 per annum and normal hours of work for each position are 9am – 6pm, Monday to Friday. Once probationary periods have been completed, KCH Garden Square offers employees hybrid working opportunities.

To apply for either position, please send a CV and cover letter to Hannah Scothern by email to

Applications will close at 5pm on Thursday 18th January 2024. In-person interviews will be scheduled between 25th and 30th January 2024, with a view to candidates starting as soon as possible.
