Job Details

We currently have an opportunity for an Executive Support Assistant (Administrator) to join our Bristol office on a full-time, permanent basis.

The team and the role

The Executive Support Assistant (ESA) team provide support to fee earners across the firm with administrative tasks such as client and matter opening, archiving, photocopying, scanning, bundle preparation, binding etc. Under normal circumstances, ESAs, are predominantly office based and primarily support fee earners in their own office. However, they work centrally and collectively together supporting fee earners as a team across the business. Workflow for the ESA team is supervised by two Workflow Coordinators.

Our Executive Support Assistants are highly skilled and distinguished by technical excellence with a willingness to embrace team working and a desire to provide excellent client service.  They are organised, flexible in their approach to managing workloads, confident with their work and are closely aligned with the vision, values and objectives of the people they support across the business.

What are we looking for?

To be successful this role you'll need as a minimum;

  • Previous experience of working in an administrative role of some description (ideally within the professional services sector)
  • Proficiency in MS Office suite
  • Excellent communication skills and being able to utilise them via different methods such as emails, phone calls and letters

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!

As signatories to the Mindful Business Charter, it's important to us 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 and we're very happy to talk flexible working, full-time or part-time working patterns.

Through our DEI initiatives we create an environment in which difference is valued. We have an Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Group, led by our Board Sponsor, which works with our colleague networks (we currently have firm supported networks for race, ethnicity, and cultural heritage, 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). Find out more about ED&I at WBD here. We encourage applicants from all social backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, gender identities and sexual orientations.

We are committed to ensuring our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible to all.
