Blake Morgan is one of the UK’s leading full service law firms, with offices in London, Wales, Thames Valley and the South Coast Region. We provide our clients with practical and straightforward legal advice whatever their regional, national and international requirements. Our clients are commercial businesses, not-for-profit organisations, government agencies and private individuals.
We are looking for administrative assistants to support our busy Cardiff based Regulatory team.
Our Legal 500, tier 1 ranked professional regulatory team has a national profile, providing advice and assistance in all areas of regulatory and professional disciplinary practice. The team comprises partners, barristers, solicitors and paralegals all of whom specialise in regulatory work, but who come from a mix of criminal and civil litigation backgrounds. Our client base continues to grow rapidly and consequently excellent opportunities continue to arise with us.
The successful candidate will be supporting case managers, advocates and paralegals working on regulatory matters. The role will comprise various administrative roles including management of the team’s hearings diary, file opening and closing, bundle preparation and management of the team’s billing and management information. There will be various ad-hoc projects as required, so there will be a need to successfully prioritise a busy workload. The team is very client focused so would expect their secretaries to have a similar approach.
