My primary role is assisting Matthew Clake, a Partner of the firm and Head of the Commercial Property Department. I have a positive approach to my work and I am always willing to go that bit further when required. I always seek to develop upon my existing skills and never miss an opportunity to learn more about the legal side of my job where I can. Organisation and contingency are rules which I absolutely work by and I thrive off my ability to hit the ground running and work from my own initiative to progress transactions or tackle more complex tasks.
My Route to Ellis Jones
I have worked almost my entire working life in the legal sector, working for all levels of Fee Earner in an secretarial and administrative position. I have mainly worked in the South but spent a few years in the Midlands. Now very happily back on home turf, having gone through a few changes of department, I began my working life with Ellis Jones as a Float Secretary. An invaluable role, which I enjoyed when I very first started working in the law, where I had the opportunity to work in most legal departments and at different offices which made the role engaging and different everyday. Now, I spend my days in Commercial Conveyancing and bring to the department my many years of secretarial and administrational experience. I still manage to learn something new, however, most days!
