Legal Secretaries Today

Share this blog post

The role of legal secretary has evolved dramatically over the last 20 years becoming more complex, more technical and more critical to the overall performance of a high functioning legal team.

In case you didn’t know, there is a huge shortage of experienced legal secretaries right now. Leading firms are offering a range of benefits to lure great candidates across and it’s a good time to be picky.

It’s also a great time to really think about what makes the role of a legal secretary so great.

Firstly, you are the “go to” person for your department – always tapped in to where everyone is at any point in time – what work is coming in, where it is at and how people are performing. This is particularly important in hybrid working environments.  Other responsibilities include monitoring billings, drafting and editing documents, co-ordinating meetings, event planning and using a range of technologies for everything from e-filing to billing and document management.  

So what’s the money?  Today, the Elias Recruitment Professional Support Division is working with clients ready to pay between $75,000- $85,000 plus super.  For that package, you will have some previous experience, have a basic understanding of legal terminology, strong IT skills and a genuine interest in the technologies that are reshaping the legal profession. No heels required.
