Job Description

As the new Finance Assistant of this top tier boutique law firm you will become an essential element to the accounts function. Based a short walk from Liverpool Street Train Station no expense is spared in offices catered to ultra-high-net-worth clientele. They provide services to the rich and famous and have been consistently nominated for awards year after year since their inception. The position will be focused on billing and revenue duties but also provide you with the opportunity to step up and assist with the supervision of the department every now and then. Your expertise will also be required to guide more junior members of the team, meaning that it is imperative that you have also covered legal cashiering and legal accounts payable work during your career as well.

Your duties will include:

  • WIP
  • Transfers and adjustments
  • Reconciliation
  • Ledgers
  • Invoices
  • Time narratives
  • Credit notes
  • Credit control
  • Purchase ledger
  • Cost allocation
  • Cash statements
  • Month-end
  • Administration

Due to the nature of the role, candidates must possess between 3 to 5 years mixed legal finance experience within a law firm and a good knowledge of SAR, VAT, Billing, Cashiering and AP. Experience of 'Partners for Windows' and Office365 would be a distinct advantage but is by no means essential. If you feel that you have the necessary background and work ethic to thrive within such a position and would like to know more, please submit your CV for immediate consideration.
