This is a fantastic time to be joining Harrison Clark Rickerbys. Having grown exponentially over the last few years, we are now more than 500 strong with 9 offices across the UK.

We act for more than 400 educational institutions including independent schools, academies, Further Education colleges, specialist colleges and nurseries.

We are looking for a competent Secretary/Administrator to join our busy team in Cheltenham. You will provide support for the wider Education team, and therefore due to the time demands of this role, we require someone to join the team on a full-time basis.

Because the successful candidate will provide support to others in the team, you must be well organised, be able to multi-task and take a pro-active approach to your work. You’ll be a team player and willing to get stuck into new things. Legal experience is not essential, however, experience of working in a professional environment is desirable.

As well as a competitive salary, we also offer an excellent benefits package including:
