What will you be doing?
This job will see you providing expert and up to date information to people across our firm from legal teams to finance, IT, HR and many others. You'll be a point of contact for queries relating to risk and best practice - but don't worry as you'll have access to all the information you need to be able to do this. We'll also give you the training you'll need.
Day to day you'll be conducting conflict searches, credit checks, producing reports, investigating queries, interrogating external databases, assessing results, updating our rates system and dealing with a variety of queries from across the firm. There is a great deal to learn but, as mentioned, the rest of the team will be on hand to train and guide you through. It's a fantastic opportunity to learn new skills.
So, what are we looking for?
We'll be looking for previous administration experience. A background in accounting, finance, banking or similar would be useful in this role. You'll need to demonstrate your ability to deal with queries, analyse data and resolve problems. Without a doubt this role requires attention to detail, organisation, initiative and the ability to think on your feet. You'll also need strong IT skills to be able to navigate various systems, databases and web sites. This is an influential position that requires the ability to engage our people through effective communication skills.
What makes it great to work here?
We continually work hard to create an open culture that sets us apart from other firms. Our culture gives us much more of a human feel, emphasising that we're more than just suits! We make time for each other enabling us to establish professional relationships that become lasting friendships. In addition, through our D&I practices and programmes we work hard to ensure that difference is visibly valued and welcomed.
Alongside a competitive salary you'll also receive a flexible benefits package so you can pick and choose between the benefits that matter most to you.
We invest a lot in our people - it's our people and culture that make it a great place to work.
