Legal Secretary (Edinburgh)

Davidson Chalmers Stewart is a leading independent commercial law firm operating from offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.  The firm's underlying business rationale is to provide clients with excellent quality service which combines first rate technical legal skills with practical commercial advice.

Due to our continued growth, we are seeking a Legal Secretary who has a sound legal background experience within the last 12-18 months.

The role will be variable and challenging for the successful applicant.  The primary responsibilities of this position are to provide secretarial support to the Dispute Resolution department with the ability to provide cover for other departments (Commercial Property, Corporate, Environmental, Waste and Renewables) when required.  Experience of preparing court documents would be desirable but not essential as training will be provided.

Experience of using digital dictation systems and the general Microsoft Office packages (Word, Outlook, Excel) is essential as well as a willingness to learn new skills.  Candidates’ personal attributes will also be an important factor in the selection process and significant emphasis will be placed on organisation and communication skills, use of personal initiative and the ability to work as part of a team.   

This position is office based in our Edinburgh office and hours will be 9.00am – 5.30pm, Monday – Friday.

Please note that only applicants who have the required skills and experience and are comfortable with the working pattern detailed above will be considered for this role.

We offer a highly competitive salary and excellent benefits package.
