In addition to having excellent communication skills, you will have proven leadership supervision or management skills gained at a substantial legal or similar professional organisation. Also, you will be business focussed, be able to project manage and have the flexibility and drive to enable us to innovate. The last 2 years have seen the legal team embrace cloud based technologies, Docusign, CaseLines and FPL. As Practice Manager you will be expected to take this to the next level as we look to update our Case Management System.
