An investigative mind and the ability to understand large amounts of complex information are skills often necessary in legal jobs, or jobs in legal services. The roles for legal jobs are wide ranging from that of executive secretary and legal executive to that of equalities officer and compliance officer. This means candidates can have a wide range of skills sets from providing secretarial and administrative support to counsel and legal teams, to specialising in a particular area of law as well as promoting positive practices and attitudes. Candidates for legal jobs will have good spoken and written communication skills and often the ability to explain complex legal matters clearly to people. Patience and discretion and the ability to work under pressure are also relevant. Many legal jobs can be found in law courts, local authorities, estate agents, with the police, and in the chambers of barristers and offices of solicitors.
