This is a fantastic opportunity to join an Edinburgh based legal firm with a great reputation, to work on a 121 basis, supporting a Partner (Head of Department).  The role will suit someone who really enjoys a full Legal PA role with involved responsibilities.

Although applications are preferred from established Legal Secretaries / PAs with experience of supporting within a busy and demanding Private Client Department, getting the right person for the role is the most important thing so we also welcome applications from established Legal Secretary / PAs who have gained their experience from legal departments other than Private Client.

Duties include:

  • All aspects of administration of estates
  • Completing relevant forms for application of Confirmations and Inheritance Tax Returns
