Description:

Are you highly organised with secretarial experience gained in a legal environment? Then join Shelter as a Legal Administrator and you could soon be playing a vital role ensuring our legal team have the administrative support they need to help more people who are affected by the housing emergency.

About Shelter

A home is a fundamental human need, as essential as education or healthcare. Yet millions of people across Britain struggle on a daily basis with homelessness, bad housing conditions, soaring rents, discrimination and the threat of eviction. So, we are striving for change, with individuals, in communities, across society, and leading the way to a safe home. We need ambitious, best-in-class individuals who are passionate about our cause to join us at this exciting time. This is your chance to play a part in the fundamental change we are striving to achieve.

At Shelter we are united by our purpose to defend the right to a safe home. Our enemy is the social injustice at the core of the escalating housing emergency. We believe that to win that fight, we must be representative of the people we are here to help and those who support our movement for change. In all our people decisions, we take pride in being inclusive, fair, equitable and transparent.

We have committed to combat racism both within and outside Shelter and welcome you on our journey to becoming a truly anti-racist organisation.

About the team 

Our hubs are at the heart of the community and are bases for activism as well as help and support. This is a great opportunity to join a very busy hub and be part of a team that want to bring about change at a local level as well as contribute to national change.

About the Role

As a Legal Administrator, we’ll rely on you to provide full administrative support to a Solicitor, including taking telephone calls, secretarial duties, data entry, note taking, sorting the post and managing a diary. You’ll also be responsible for supporting the wider team when required to ensure the effective running of the service. And, when it comes to communicating with clients and third parties, including making appointments and obtaining information, again, we’ll count on you. Producing reports, providing an accurate audio typing service, processing legal, funding and other documents managing files, preparing documents for court and entering information onto a case management system – these are just some aspects of this interesting and varied role.

We are happy to talk about flexible working, personal growth, and to promote a workplace where you can be yourself and achieve success based only on your merit.

About you

You have secretarial experience gained in a legal practice and audio/copy typing skills with a minimum of 70 wpm, along with advanced knowledge of IT tools including case management systems, MS Office, internet, email etc. You're proactive, with great written and verbal communication skills and enjoy working as part of a busy team.
