Are you a Resolution member? If you’re as committed as we are to resolving matters constructively and with minimal conflict, this is a fantastic opportunity to join our well-established Family team within a Legal 500 firm.

We’re looking for someone to focus on Financial Remedy cases as their area of expertise, whilst also displaying a rounded competence in Family Law work.

Accounts Assistant / Legal Cashier

Our small but busy accounts department are looking for someone on a part time basis (at least 21 hours per week).

This is a varied role with a focus on delivering timely and accurate transactional work. It’s a high-volume, deadline-driven area subject to regulatory rules, so you’ll need to be able to work well as part of a team.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • identification, allocation and processing of a high volume of receipts and payments which come into the firms’ bank accounts;
  • all related on-line banking receipt and payment processing activities
  • daily reconciliations of those bank accounts by effective use of our practice
  • management accounting software (Tikit Partner for Windows)
  • accurately recording all transactions on the accounting systems
  • general support of the team.

Previous experience as a Legal Cashier/in a law firm is an advantage but not essential – as is an understanding of the principles of the Solicitors Accounts Rules and money laundering regulations. You’ll have excellent working knowledge of electronic accounting systems and a high degree of IT literacy generally. Experience of, and confidence in, dealing with a high volume of financial transactions, including large transactions, is a must.

In addition to annual leave, occupational sick pay and pension scheme membership, Laceys provides a range of benefits to support your health and wellbeing including our EAP scheme, a healthcare cash plan and bike2work scheme among others. Being based in Bournemouth for a lunchtime walk to the beach also helps. The role is available on a hybrid basis after an initial induction and training period.

Legal Assistant – Commercial Property

This is an exciting opportunity to support the wider Commercial Property team whilst focussing on one-to-one support to a well-regarded senior partner.

We’d like to hear from you if you’re motivated by a busy workload and relish keeping on track of a variety of important deadlines. You’ll be an experienced administrator with a flexible approach, used to providing secretarial support at a senior level in a professional services environment and with a good understanding of the importance of compliance processes and procedures.

Key duties include:

  • Responding efficiently to client queries as a first point of contact, ensuring a positive client experience and maintaining excellent ongoing relationships
  • Undertaking and effectively prioritising dictated tasks on a daily basis, which will include creating various emails and letters to clients and third parties as well as drafting of contracts and transfers
  • Effectively managing numerous versions of large documents including contract, leases, licenses and mortgage deeds – ensuring accurate version control and use of tracked changes. Consistently demonstrating attention to detail
  • Working in a ‘paper light’ way, scanning documentation and ensuring that electronic files are maintained to a high standard on the case management system
  • Maintaining all case files to a high standard and in accordance with SRA requirements, the Law Society protocol, Laceys’ procedures and the LEXCEL quality mark requirements

The role is full time and office based.

The person

Your organisation and communication skills will be second to none. Attention to detail and effective time management is a must.

A high degree of IT literacy, particularly a good familiarity with MS Office and ideally with experience of using electronic case management systems is a requirement. You’ll regularly work with detailed legal documents and so proficiency in version control and use of ‘track changes’ is essential.

Experience in a similar role in a residential or commercial property legal team is a distinct advantage. Basic accounting knowledge as it relates to property processes is also an advantage. You may even have a legal secretarial qualification or business or administrative qualification to NVQ Level 3 or equivalent. You’ll be comfortable with dictation.

In addition to annual leave, occupational sick pay and pension scheme membership, Laceys provides a range of benefits to support your health and wellbeing including our EAP scheme, a healthcare cash plan and bike2work scheme among others. Being based in Bournemouth for a lunchtime walk to the beach also helps.
