Facilities Assistant – Bristol
A great job opportunity has arisen in our Facilities team in Bristol. I'm looking for a Facilities Assistant to join us on a 3 month contract working 8am-4pm Monday-Friday.
Womble Bond Dickinson is a Top 100 law firm globally and Top 20 law firm in the UK, with more than 400 partners and 1,000 lawyers based across 18 US cities and eight UK cities including a significant presence in London. The firm's reach also extends to Europe where it has strategic partnerships with other law firms in Germany and France.

What will you be doing?
The Facilities Assistant job role is a busy one and requires someone who is resourceful and organised. Being a law firm we generate a lot of documents that are processed by our Facilities team, so you'll be required to deal with internal post room requests as well as external providers of postal and logistics services. The job role will involve processing all mail (incoming and outgoing), reprographics as well as printing emails and other large documents.
You'll be working closely with our other internal teams ensuring the office runs smoothly which includes our catering team, reception, building maintenance and operational support. You'll also assist the Facilities Supervisor with general duties and work with the Guest Services team in preparing for any event and functions.
So, what are we looking for?
The job requires someone with previous office based experience. You'll need to be able to multi-task but still maintain attention to detail. You'll be a motivated pro-active team player with excellent communication skills. You'll have a flexible approach and be consistently helpful. You must also be able to work on your own initiative and have the ability to work to deadlines. This is a really social job role interacting with lots of different people – this is where your great customer services skills come in.
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.
