Our client is a specialist Family Law firm with a great story to tell: long-term staff retention, a flat structure (even the boss answers the phone!) and a compassionate approach to clients' needs.

Based in Newcastle's CBD, they are seeking an experienced Legal Secretary to join their busy team on a full-time basis.

As Legal Secretary you will be adept at anticipating needs and enjoy taking initiative. You will have the ability to work independently but not at the expense of a collaborative team environment.

To succeed in this role you will have:

  • A minimum of three years' experience as a Legal Secretary, preferably including family law
  • Experience drafting and preparing court documents
  • Proficiency in the full Microsoft Office suite
  • The ability to develop rapport with clients whilst maintaining a professional attitude
  • Strong organisational skills, the ability to multi-task and prioritise a constantly changing workload
  • Experience with Legal Practice software (ideally LEAP)
  • An understanding of Federal Circuit Court and Family Court processes (advantageous).
