Working as a Legal Secretary in Brighton

I am a Legal Secretary in Brighton and I have had this Legal Secretary Job for a few months. I thought that I would use this opportunity to give some advise to people who are thinking about becoming a Legal Secretary. I got the job after being a Secretary for a long-time in London.

Following redundancy, Karen took a Souters Legal Secretary Course so that she could move into the legal field. She used her budget fro her redundancy to find the CPD Accredited Legal Secretary Course and from that point she never looked back.
