THE WHO, THE WHAT AND THE WHERE

Our client is a well-established, well-versed, boutique law firm, with a reputation built on success. This team is comprised of genuine, progressive legal professionals who love what they do and enjoy spending time together, both at work, and after work as well. The office is based on the western fringes of the CBD and is close to public transport, with heaps of street parking, and of course, if you’re the kind of person who likes to ride to work, there’s end of trip facilities too. Working across practice areas including Family, Wills & Estate and Commercial, you will be joining an approachable team with a plethora of experience and a wealth of knowledge. The team is like family, so you can expect a nurturing and encouraging environment.

Repeat business and referral, medium-sized successful boutique law firm with a reputation for being the best.

WHAT’S INVOLVED?

The work is interesting and varied, with clients ranging from simple to complex. The company is built on repeat business and referrals, so ensuring a positive client experience is the main priority.

Your role will involve all the standard practices and administration across:
- Drafting legal documents
- Developing and maintaining strong working relationships with clients
- Data entry and analysis
- Conducting legal research
- Scheduling and general administration

DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?

We need a self-starter for this job; someone who can see what needs to be done and take initiative to make it happen – you really need to “own” the role and be able to inspire confidence in your ability. The work is transactional and therefore quite fast-paced – you need to have a sense of urgency and a quick eye for detail to maintain profitability in this area. We are looking for someone with some warmth and a natural flair for bringing people together. Whilst you need to be capable, you also cannot be afraid to ask questions when you are unsure – this is a continuous learning environment.

We also require:
- A minimum of 1 year of experience in professional services, ideally within the legal industry
- Well-developed organisation and prioritisation abilities
- The ability to build strong, trusting relationships with clients through excellent communication
- A problem-solving mentality
- Exceptionally well presented
- Excellent MS Office skills
- Along with your experience, your proven focus on providing exceptional service and your ability to work cohesively in a team will be deciding factors for success in this process.
