Viv Rivett

Technical Services Manager

Viv has responsibility for ensuring that the many aspects of Operations, IT and workflow run smoothly.

Originally from Australia, she came to England in 1992 and completely fell in love with the place.

She worked in London for a year and then moved up north, working in Leeds and Manchester as an IT trainer/developer and as a legal secretary.

Following eight years as IT Support Manager for a firm of solicitors in Manchester, she joined the team at Document Direct in 2011, helping develop many of the typing protocols, and then assumed greater responsibility for the wider area of IT and Operations.

She has a wealth of experience in virtually all areas of law, especially Shipping, Corporate and Commercial law and her advanced document production skills in Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and many case management systems give her an ideal background.

Favourite tipple
