Junior Legal Secretary - Lower Hutt

Are you looking for a secretarial role in a face-paced legal environment?

Gibson Sheat is a long-established and well-respected law firm which provides a broad range of legal services for its business and personal clients. It has offices in Wellington, Lower Hutt and Masterton.

We are looking for a full time Junior Legal Secretary to join our busy Lower Hutt property team.

You will be responsible for assisting our experienced property legal secretaries, legal staff and partners. Your duties will include data entry, typing and preparation of documents, file maintenance and other administration and junior level secretarial tasks.

We are looking for someone who has:

  • A recent secretarial or administrative qualification
  • A real keenness to learn, and an ability to quickly pick up new systems, processes and learn new information
  • A typing and data entry speed of more than 40 words per minute, with a very high level of accuracy
  • A good knowledge of Microsoft office.

You will be the sort of person who enjoys coming to work and wants to do the best possible job for your team and our clients. You will also be highly motivated, have initiative, and be a self-starter.

Although we’re ideally looking for someone who has had some secretarial or administration experience, we are open to considering those who have no secretarial or administrative experience if they meet all, or most, of the other requirements of this role.

If you are interested in this exciting entry level opportunity, please send your CV and covering letter to anna.holland-waterson@gibsonsheat.com by Friday, 16 November 2018.
