We're currently looking for a Document Production Specialist to join our team – working on a part-time basis preferably 1.00pm - 5.00pm on Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays (although there is some flexibility around this).

You'll be predominantly working from home.  However, you would need to be able to access one of our offices as and when required or is necessary (Bristol, Southampton, Plymouth, Leeds, Newcastle, Edinburgh or London). 

The team

Our Executive Services team ensure that our fee earners provide a seamless and efficient client service and is made up of three 'Hubs'.  A Personal Assistant Hub, providing organisational and client care support, an Executive Support Assistant Hub, providing support with administrative tasks and a Document Production hub, providing high quality document production support across multiple legal disciplines.  We have a number of Executive Team Leaders across the business, one of whom is responsible for the day to day running of the Document Production hub, and this is who you will report to.

The role

You will play a crucial part in supporting our fee earners across the business dealing with large volumes of work to include audio and copy typing and  the production of complex agreements.  You will also assist with updating our precedent document library, the production of bids and tender documents and helping to deal with and resolve queries as and when they arise.

What are we looking for?

It goes without saying that you will need excellent knowledge of the MS Office suite.  Experience of working with agreement templates, precedent documents and track changes would also be beneficial.  You will need a typing speed of 65 wpm or above and of course have a high level of attention to detail.

Alongside these technical skills we are also looking for someone who is a real team player and can build good relationships with the people they support around the business.  You should be organised, self-motivated and have a flexible approach to managing workloads.
