Business support staff
We operate through a full business support team including accounting and finance, HR, IT, marketing and other support staff.
Each department employs staff to enable the firm to manage itself efficiently and effectively on a day-to-day basis as well as to prepare the firm for the future achievement of its objectives.
Although legal secretarial experience is always welcome, it is not essential in order to apply for a secretarial post with us. We consider the overall experience of applicants, taking into account their motivation, communication skills and attitude amongst other factors. We are particularly keen to employ secretaries who will assist our clients as much as possible, becoming actively involved wherever appropriate. We will consider providing assistance for training to administrative staff who would like to further their careers.
We are looking for a HR Manager to provide HR support to the firm.
This is a generalist role covering all aspects of HR including:
- recruitment and trainee recruitment
- compensation and benefits management
- delivering the wellbeing plan
- managing disciplinary and grievance procedures
- preparing and managing budgets
- maintaining HR records
- undertaking SRA compliance activities such as renewing practising certificates and obtaining diversity data
- advising the Management Board and partners on best HR practice.
This role will report directly to the Chief Operating Officer and support will be available on relevant issues from the Employment department.
In addition to experience in these areas we will need someone with good interpersonal skills, written, verbal, IT and numeric skills, and project management skills.
They will ideally have experience of a generalist role in the legal industry and be CIPD qualified.
We will consider candidates who would prefer to work less than full time.
