A position has arisen for a PA/admin assistant to work full time in our busy mental health tribunal team.

The job will involve supporting the lawyers in the department, by managing their diaries, typing up correspondence and documentation, dealing with telephone calls, and greeting clients who call into reception.

Experience of working in a solicitors’ office and/or dealing with mental health matters is an advantage, but not essential. Extensive training will be provided at a pace to suit you and us, and to give you the opportunity to progress in your career.

Good communication skills, familiarity with use of computer systems, and a calm and level-headed approach under pressure, are essential. We specialise in mental health and mental capacity law. The successful candidate will understand the importance of providing a supportive and understanding experience for our clients, and of being part of a team.

The gross annual salary is £14,500. However, a higher salary may be possible for applicants who already have experience and qualifications in this area of work.

Interviews will be at our office in Preston.

Applications should be by email with CV attached, addressed to our managing partner, Jane Gale and sent care of the following email address:-  office@odonnells-solicitors.co.uk.
