About the role

This is a key role in a busy team delivering our process serving offering.

Process serving is (mainly) the delivery of legal documents to addressees by hand. The Administration Assistant role is part logistics, part client relationship manager, part report writer, and more besides.

This area of the business is fast-paced, highly responsive and focused on detail.

The successful candidate will learn from one of the most experienced process serving teams in the country, with a loyal and growing client base.

Typical areas of responsibility and tasks will include:

  • Booking in jobs using our case management system.
  • Liaising with clients to understand their instructions and update them on a job’s progress.
  • Liaising with agents to ensure assignments are completed on time, meet the client’s needs, and follow the rules of service.
  • Maintaining accurate records.
  • Preparing formal reports and statements.
  • Preparing invoices.
  • Responding to enquiries.

The role may extend to administration of other services beyond process serving.

About you

You will be:

  • Highly organised and efficient, and able to manage a high caseload.
  • A strong communicator, comfortable working through phone calls and email.
  • Professional, positive and proactive in your approach.
  • Detail-orientated.
  • Confident and able to manage multiple clients and external agents.
  • Proficient in Microsoft Office tools – particularly Outlook, Word and Excel.
  • A good typist, preferably with a typing speed of over 60 words per minute with very few mistakes.
  • Confident learning new software.

You must have:

  • Previous experience in an administrative role.

We will provide all necessary training on systems and processes.
