We're looking for four full-time Finance Administrators to work within our Working Capital function, from either our Newcastle, Leeds or Southampton offices.
It's no secret that we're an ambitious firm and our vision and our culture truly reflects that. At the heart of this is an outstanding client experience, something that Womble Bond Dickinson prides itself on, and it's something that we've become so well known for. We believe it's what will support the growth of our business, allow us to do rewarding and profitable work and create a sustainable business for our people.
Central to all of this are our very talented lawyers, but they couldn't achieve their results without the ongoing support from our Finance team who have an essential role to play in growing the business and maintaining our financial performance.
New opportunities have arisen to join this team; it is a permanent role to start as soon as possible. Reporting to the Head of Credit Control, this role will provide general financial support for the business and, more specifically, across the billing and credit control functions. You can expect to be involved in the production and analysis of financial reports, assisting with production of bills and the maintenance of ebilling systems, assisting with cash collections, liaising with the Treasury team with regard to the allocation/application of funds, dealing with queries and working on specific working capital based projects.
So what about you?
Some previous experience of working within a finance department is essential, so that you have an understanding of basic finance processing. Some knowledge of invoicing and/or credit control would be desirable but is not essential. Strong IT skills are a must, along with a meticulous and detailed approach. You will need to be supportive to colleague and demonstrate a flexible and helpful attitude. In addition, you'll be professional and pragmatic with a naturally inquisitive nature. We're looking for a problem-solver who uses common sense to reach a satisfactory conclusion.
Who are we?
A Top 100 law firm globally and Top 20 law firm in the UK, Womble Bond Dickinson has more than 400 partners and 1,000 lawyers based across 19 US cities and seven UK cities including a significant presence in London. The firm's reach also extends to Europe where it has strategic partnerships with other law firms in Germany and France.

What makes it great to work here?
We continually work hard to create an open culture that sets us apart from other firms. Our culture gives us much more of a human feel, emphasising that we're more than just suits! We like and make time for each other enabling us to establish professional relationships that can often become lasting friendships.
Through our D&I initiatives we create an environment in which difference is valued. We have a Diversity and Inclusion Group, led by our Board Sponsor, which works with our colleague networks (we currently have firm supported networks for ethnic diversity, LGBTQ+, disabilities, families, and women's career development and we're in constant dialogue with our people about how we expand our networks to better support everybody). We encourage applicants from all social backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, gender identities and sexual orientations.
As signatories to the Mindful Business Charter, it's important that our people are able to maintain healthy and happy lives, both in and out of work. We have a number of resources and initiatives designed to support health and wellbeing, including our team of dedicated mental health first aiders. We recognise that getting the right work life balance is a priority for all of us and we're very happy to talk flexible working, full-time or part-time working patterns. We also recognise the challenges of relocation and post-pandemic return to the office.
And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can choose and vary the benefits that matter most to you.
