Working for Hegarty Solicitors is rewarding, challenging and stimulating.   We are an expanding practice with a reputation for excellence, and a focus firmly on achieving the best results possible for our clients. 

We know that it is our people that make us one of the most successful law firms in Peterborough, so we invest significant time in the recruitment and training of our staff.  Expertise alone is not enough; to work for us you must also share our vision for delivering exceptional client care. 

It is our people that differentiate us from the competition.  Our lawyers are innovative, dedicated and committed to developing long lasting, positive relationship with clients.  Our legal secretaries are professional and supportive with excellent attention to detail, and our support staff have the drive and determination to continue to grow and develop our practice.

We are passionate about developing people throughout their careers.  From our partners right through to our administrative assistants, we value the contribution that each person makes to the firm and seek to continually challenge and develop their professional skills. Our administrators have gone on to become legal secretaries; secretaries have become legal executives and some of our trainees have gone on to become partners. 

Working for Hegarty Solicitors is not just a career choice; it’s a lifestyle choice too.  We know that in order to keep the very best people throughout their careers we need to be able to offer a positive work/life balance and flexible working patterns where appropriate.

Opportunities With Hegarty Solicitors

At Hegarty Solicitors, we regularly recruit for the following roles

  Solicitor / Legal Executive

At Hegarty Solicitors, we offer a wide range of legal services to both the private and commercial sectors and the breadth of our client base means we can offer you a wide variety of work and responsibility.

Each of our lawyers specialises in a particular field, meaning that you will be working alongside experts in your chosen area of law.  To make sure you continue to develop both your skills and knowledge, subsidies are available for training and professional qualifications.
We believe in celebrating and rewarding success – which is supported by our salary structure

  Legal Secretaries

As a legal secretary, you will need to be friendly and flexible with a positive attitude.  You will be a good team player, focused on delivering an exceptional service to our clients.

We are also particularly proud of our innovative legal secretary training programme. As a trainee secretary you will spend time in every department across a two year period, being mentored and coached throughout the entire process.  You will develop a thorough understanding of the firm as a whole, which will give you the flexibility to work in any area of the law.  Your salary will be reviewed after six months, with a further salary review once you’ve completed your training programme and become a fully qualified legal secretary.  This programme is ideal for anyone with a background in administration and who wants to develop within the legal profession.

  Support Staff

We have a number of support departments including I.T., marketing, finance and administration.  Just like our lawyers and legal secretaries, as part of our support function you will need to be hardworking, ambitious and enthusiastic.

As an integral part of the firm, you will be empowered to fulfil your potential with ongoing support and development and you will be encouraged to think creatively to help us to develop and expand.
