The Inside Story

Meet Claire Marks, Legal Support Assistant

Meet Claire Marks, Legal Support Assistant

I joined Foot Anstey as a secretary in 2001 with no experience of the legal profession. I was looking for something a little bit different and Foot Anstey was a well-known and respected firm in the city. When I came in for my interview I was really impressed by the people I met, everyone was professional, yet friendly.

It’s a very supportive environment and I feel like I’m a valued member of the team. I’m lucky to be part of a successful job share. I work three days a week and get to take my youngest child to school every day too. I’ve been at Foot Anstey for over 13 years now and I’ve always been encouraged to develop myself. I have also worked as a paralegal, HR assistant and, now, legal support assistant. Foot Anstey has really given me the best of both worlds, an interesting and enjoyable job along with the flexibility to give me an enviable work/life balance. In addition I get to work alongside some fantastic people.
