Writing a job ad is hard work, especially if you’re not too familiar with the job role yourself. What’s the difference between a Legal Secretary and a Paralegal, anyway? Don’t a Risk Manager and GDPR Data Protection Officer do practically the same tasks? Although these jobs might have similar responsibilities it’s important you know the differences between them. This way, you have a higher chance of getting the job ad right and attracting the best talent for your job.
In short, a Legal Secretary provides administrative assistance to lawyers while a Paralegal helps them prepare for trial. A Risk Manager assesses (and reduces) business risk while a GDPR Data Protection Officer ensures data legislation compliance. The Legal Advisor provides general legal assistance to clients and companies.
