Essential support for fee-earners
The highest standards of secretarial support are provided to our fee earners, and for our secretarial teams, this means that first-class technical skills are essential. All of our secretaries are required to complete the Microsoft Office Specialist ("MOS") programme for MS Word 2007 and MS Outlook 2007. Courses in other Microsoft applications (e.g. Excel and PowerPoint) are also available.
Before joining us, all secretaries are required to do typing and other skill-based tests. In addition, it is a requirement that all new joiners prepare for, and pass, the mandatory MOS programmes.
In addition to being a good technician, we also require our secretaries to have strong interpersonal skills (in terms of their interaction with colleagues and clients alike), to have strong administrative and organizational skills, a pragmatic and common sense approach to their work, and a commitment to client service.
We have an evening secretarial team, as well as a float team, to help us manage the ebbs and flows of work.
