My primary role is to give full secretarial support to 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 administrative skills and never miss an opportunity to learn more about the legal side of my job where I can.
My Route to Ellis Jones
Almost my entire working life has been in the role of a Legal Secretary, working for all levels of Fee Earner. I have mainly worked in Southampton but spent a few years working in the Midlands. Now 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 as a Commercial Conveyancing Secretary and bring to the role my many years of administrational experience and secretary-level legal knowledge but still manage to learn something new most days!
