We are seeking a part time secretary to work as a key member of our housing management litigation team, currently consisting of 4 qualified lawyers and an existing part time team secretary.
The support for the lawyers in the team now needs to be increased to reflect recent growth in team numbers, additional work streams and further anticipated growth.
We wish to appoint for 14 or 15 hours each week which could be carried out over 2 days of 7 hours each or 3 days of 5 hours each. It is our strong preference for additional support on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but are flexible on many aspects of the role.
Previous secretarial experience would be an advantage, although we invite applications from candidates from a wide range of backgrounds, providing they have good administration, organisational and typing skills.
Applicants from all demographics are invited to apply. We believe, for example, the role may be particularly attractive to school aged parents, those with carer responsibilities or those wishing to step down from full time work, due to the greater flexibility available to us with this role.
Croftons Solicitors LLP is a niche property, housing and regeneration, and charity team of lawyers based in the centre of Manchester. We have a total team of 45, all on one site, providing joined up thinking across our teams for clients. We have a clear vision to become a leading provider of legal services, with a full legal offering, to the housing and regeneration sector.
Cultural fit is extremely important to us in relation to any new team member: Core values permeate all we do.
We are all equals with different, yet clear roles/functions. We want stars, but who are prepared to shoot in broadly the same direction, in accordance with our overall vision, not do their own thing. We want team members who add to the genuine enthusiasm, excitement and excellence we already have. We want people who impress our clients and our colleagues by not only their technical legal application, but also by their pragmatism, commercial acumen and ability to get the outcomes our clients need on time, on budget and by making our clients’ lives easier.
Our clients instruct people they like and so we want team members who are good 'people people'. We like those with some entrepreneurial spirit, who spot opportunities and respond to the market place, embracing the future.
