Job Details

We're a forward-thinking law firm and have a number of offices across the UK.  We provide legal expertise and commercial advice to our clients across a wide range of sectors including Energy and Natural Resources, Real Estate, Private Wealth, Healthcare, Retail, Technology and more.

We now have a job opportunity for a Treasury Assistant to join our large finance team in Newcastle.  We're a long standing business in Newcastle and lucky enough to have offices in The Spark which is a relatively new addition to the city's Helix quarter.

This is a part time role to work either 2 or 3 days a week and offers a wide variety of benefits.

The team

Central to our firm's success are of course 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, and our Treasury Team are a crucial cog in our finance wheel. The Treasury team manage all funds coming into and going out of our various client and office bank accounts. They deal with receipt and payment of funds on behalf of our clients, dealing with a high volume of transactions on a daily basis.

The role

Reporting to the Treasury Manager, you will provide general financial support as part of the team. It's a busy team and you can expect to be involved with a broad range of tasks which might include the processing of outgoing electronic payments (CHAPS/BACS/Faster payments/International money movers), allocation of incoming funds to the correct client account and matters, stopped cheques, bank reconciliations, payment of foreign disbursements (NYP) and general banking queries.  We're a very large firm with many integrated systems and processes so we'll give you the training you need on this.

What are we looking for?

We're dealing with high value transactions, so accuracy and a meticulous approach is needed. As part of a busy team, you'll need to be a supportive colleague with both a helpful and flexible attitude. In addition, you'll need to 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.  This is a great role whether you already have experience and are looking for a new opportunity or if you are still developing your skills.

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

  • Strong academics with good grades in English and Maths.
  • Some previous experience of working within an office or finance department.
  • A basic understanding of financial processing.
  • Experience of dealing with queries and problem solving.
  • Strong IT skills including excel.

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 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.
