The Role

The Law Society is the professional body for solicitors in England and Wales. Members of the Governance team support our elected and appointed members, who are solicitors drawn from a wide variety of types of legal practice and different sectors of the community.

In this role you will be one of the Governance Officers responsible for ensuring excellent service to our Private Law Committees. This will include:

  • drafting agendas, minutes, workplans and action lists
  • collating and distributing meeting materials electronically and in hard copy,
  • processing expenses, and
  • organising committee meetings.

Within the Governance team your role is likely to consist primarily in providing a secretariat service to a portfolio of committees covering a range of matters central to the work of the Law Society and our relationship with the profession and wider stakeholders.

Governance Officers also cover for one another on an ad-hoc basis during periods of annual leave or sickness.

What we're looking for

You will have experience of providing credible and reliable administration type work within in a complex organisation.

You will have excellent minute-taking skills coupled with excellent organisational and time management skills, with the ability to work flexibly in response to changing priorities.

You also have high level of attention to detail and excellent interpersonal skills, including the ability to deal with sometimes demanding individuals and competing priorities.

What's in it for you

This is an excellent opportunity to work with contemporary thinkers in a progressive membership organisation. The successful candidate will join a strong brand with a reputation for excellence and legal expertise, committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion, and a culture of trust, clarity, excellence and respect.

We offer hybrid working, a generous flexible benefits package, a friendly working environment and the opportunity to develop your career within a professional organisation.

Please note: if you are an internal applicant, Pay Policy will apply.

The Law Society represents solicitors in England and Wales. From negotiating with and lobbying the profession's regulators, government, and other decision makers, to offering training and advice, we're here to help, protect and promote solicitors.
