Company & Commercial - Legal Secretary
Tim Stone, Chairman, Head of Company & Commercial
“As a firm, we are always on the lookout for talented people who want to build on our success and play an exciting part in our future. Steele Raymond is, at heart, a people business. For us, the law isn’t an abstract concept, rather it is something that is at the core of people’s lives and businesses.”
We are currently seeking to recruit an enthusiastic and experienced Company & Commercial Legal Secretary in Bournemouth to join our Top Tier Company & Commercial team.
This is a fantastic opportunity for a talented and technically proficient person with experience in a similar role to join our busy and highly regarded team.
Providing support to solicitors and partners within the team, the successful candidate will be IT literate, highly competent as a legal secretary and will be able to manage a varied workload to include document production, file and diary management, office administration and assisting with routine aspects of company & commercial transactions.
Strong organisational skills and the ability to work within a team to meet tight deadlines are essential for the position. Knowledge of basic company law procedures and the preparation of Companies House forms would be useful, but not essential, as full training will be given although operating as a legal secretary at the highest level even if in a different work discipline is of equal importance to the team.
This is a team that focuses on providing a very high quality service to the firm’s valued clients.
Successful applicants will have a real commitment to client service and to developing and growing our Top Tier Company & Commercial team. We are committed to properly rewarding outstanding contribution and we offer excellent working conditions and competitive remuneration packages including a bonus scheme. This is an exciting time to join one of the region’s most dynamic and quality teams and to make your career with us.

When clients have a critical business decision to make, they need advisors who work with them as part of their team, who understand the technicalities of the law - and how to apply it - but who don’t go overboard with the ‘legals’.
In brief, they need lawyers who speak fluent business. At Steele Raymond, a deep understanding of business is in our DNA. Our proactive commercial lawyers know how vital deadlines are to clients. We understand the difference between their ‘must-haves’ and their ‘nice-to-haves’.
Above all, we focus on the bigger picture, helping them to allocate business risk and deal with the things that really matter to them.
We are a leading regional firm based in Bournemouth providing high quality commercial and private client services. We have been continuously Legal 500 ‘top tier’ rated for the last 14 years in our main practice areas of company & commercial, commercial property and commercial dispute resolution. Our private client offering is a significant and growing part of our practice and offers high quality private client services.
We have a very clear strategy of sustained growth and client excellence. Our two offices have been totally refurbished and we have invested in IT, marketing and practice management. We have significantly grown in the last few years by attracting excellent new partners and senior team members from other regional firms. We are very proud of our values and friendly, supportive culture. We actively encourage staff to develop their potential and provide excellent prospects for career progression and promotion.
