Contract Type
Excellent opportunity for an experienced (3-7 years) corporate EA or PA from a law firm, accountants or bank, to join a law firm in the City.

Primarily you will be supporting a high profile Partner, acting as a gatekeeper and a link between him and his clients during his absence at meetings, managing his diary and monitoring his emails, speaking to clients in a confident manner, using your initiative and generally organising his busy schedule. There is plenty of client interaction in this role and you will be a highly valued member of the team. Currently the Partner has 3 Lawyers in his team and he will be adding one or two more in due course. You will also be providing support to the team as required although the majority of your focus will be on the Partner.

You will need to have 3-7ys' EA or PA experience in a corporate, professional environment such as a law firm, accountants or bank, managing complex diaries and travel itineraries, as well as advanced Word and Excel skills for document work although there is not a huge amount of that. You will need to be articulate, have excellent communication and organisational skills, with a very high degree of accuracy (including good spelling, grammar and punctuation), and the ability to liaise effectively with important clients in a courteous, efficient and professional manner. You will also require a flexible attitude and be happy in a role where it can sometimes be extremely busy and at other times there is not much to do. The hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm with not much overtime.

Lovely offices, friendly team environment in the heart of the City. Salary is GBP48-GBP52k depending on experience. We are only able to consider applicants who meet all of the above requirements.
