We are looking to recruit an experienced team secretary for an established building & chartered surveyors.
As the team secretaries provide such a key service to fee-earners, there is a need to ensure that a high quality support service is provided. The team is dynamic and display brilliant team work.
Fundamentally, the role is made up of copy-typing, audio-typing and formatting. Accuracy is paramount. As part of the interview process, a candidate will be asked to complete a few assessments. This will be based on Word, Excel and an audio-typing exercise. These are not tests and you really do not need to worry, it is only to give an indication of your level of skills.
The ideal candidate will have had work experience in a team secretary role, and in a busy working environment with a lot of typing and formatting required, and where ownership is taken for the work that you do. This is not a PA role, so any candidate looking to develop into a PA role working solely on a one to one basis with someone will probably not enjoy the role as team secretary’s support up to 8 fee-earners each, many of which are based in the regional offices and can range from graduate fee-earner to Partner level.
