Recruitment

Our staff consists of a variety of different qualifications and experience; solicitors, a licensed Conveyancer, FILEX, clerks, paralegals, a trainee solicitor, typists, secretaries, finance and administration roles and receptionists.  They all play an important role in providing an expert legal service and meeting our clients' needs and therefore in the success of the Firm.

We have always tried to 'grow from within' and this combined with a friendly workforce, is why we believe that we also benefit from the long service of many members of staff.  We have encouraged people to come to us and stay with us, developing their skills and expertise.

We value and encourage our diverse workforce and the strength that diversity brings to our firm and the legal profession as a whole.

Our aim is to grow whilst maintaining our core values.  As such, we are always happy to receive speculative curriculum vitaes particularly from lawyers who have expertise in a niche or growing area of the law and who have a client following.

 

Current Vacancies

Practice Manager

An opportunity has arisen for a Practice Manager to join our team.  The role will be interesting and varied in that the Practice Manager will have a pivotal role on the Management Committee and in the decision making and the running of the Firm.  On a day to day basis this will involve working closely with the managing partner.   The main responsibilities will be to oversee the Finance, Administration and Facilities for the Firm.  However, a hands-on approach and willingness to become involved in day to day matters so as to ensure the smooth running of the office as a whole will be necessary.

A strong financial background is required with the preferred candidate having had experience in a senior financial role (perhaps as an accountant) in a legal services environment.

Management experience and a broad knowledge of the financial running of a law firm, HR, compliance and facilities are essential.  There will be a significant emphasis placed on the general strategic management of the Firm and the successful candidate will have the confidence and experience to present opportunities and strategies to the partners as well as run and implement them.

The role will provide an exciting and challenging role for the right individual and a competitive package.  For more information, please contact Managing Partner, Clare de Banke on 01604 622101 or at clare.debanke@bmtclaw.co.uk.
