Personal Assistant/Secretary

We are on the “hunt” for a capable PA/Secretary to work in our busy Litigation Department.  The position is full time and based in our Nelson Office.

The only prerequisite is that you are an experienced touch typist with a minimum typing speed of 50 wpm and a good working knowledge of Word.  As the position has a significant typing component to it, this skill set is essential as is good spelling and grammar.  All other parts of the position can be learnt and training will be provided if you are not familiar with a legal environment.

Our Litigation Department is comprised of a small, closely knit team so it is imperative that the successful applicant is a team player, calm under pressure, has good organisation skills, competency with grammar and spelling and is a good cultural fit with the firm’s values.

We can promise a very busy job with no one day ever being the same, a supportive work environment, free car parking, lovely new premises with an outside courtyard, modern systems and procedures and lastly, to be part of the Knapps team – a firm well respected for its professionalism.

Does this sound like you?  If so, we would love to receive your application. 

Please apply with your CV and a cover letter to Tracey Buxton, Practice Manager, Knapps Lawyers.  Applications close 29th March 2019.

The application form will include these questions:
  • Which of the following statements best describes your right to work in New Zealand?
  • What's your expected annual base salary?
  • How many years' experience do you have in a legal secretary role?
  • Which of the following Microsoft Office products are you experienced with?
  • How much notice are you required to give your current employer?
