We are seeking a bright, kind and organised person to join our Estate Administration team. You will join a team of support staff who work together to provide assistance to the department’s lawyers across our three offices. You will work in the firm’s Barnstaple office.

Wollens is a dynamic and successful Devon-based firm. It has shown exceptional growth over the past few years and is now one of the largest practices in the Devon and Somerset area. It has ambitious plans for the future, and this opportunity is perfect for a bright and committed individual to make a mark in a vibrant firm and department.

Our Legal Secretaries/Legal Assistants play a vital role in ensuring we can continue to deliver great service to our clients. 

It is therefore essential that you possess excellent technical skills, are professional in your approach to work, adaptable and determined to support your team to succeed.

  • display excellent customer service and be confident speaking with clients and contacts on the telephone
  • display empathy 
  • type at a reasonable speed (40-50 word per minute) with accuracy both independently and using audio-dictation

  • be thorough and pay attention to detail
  • work well with others
  • be patient and remain calm in stressful situations
  • use initiative but also take direction and work to deadlines

This varied role requires a degree of flexibility as you will need to be able to react to the needs of the lawyers and the clients as they arise.

In return you will be joining a friendly and professional firm.  We will offer a competitive salary and excellent benefits and terms of employment.
