Office Administrator/ HR Assistant – London

Posted 4 weeks ago

We are seeking an administrator to join the business services team in our friendly and diverse central London office.

You will assist in covering our reception desk and post room and in supporting our HR team. A smart appearance and strong interpersonal skills are essential, since you will be dealing face to face (and by phone) with clients and colleagues. You will assist with scanning post, photocopying, filing and archiving, as well as HR administrative tasks. An interest in IT  would also be an advantage, as will previous experience in a similar role.

This busy role does involve lifting and carrying, as well as running errands, both within and outside the office – for example, distributing post and office equipment, taking documents to court & clients and receiving and dealing with deliveries. The role isn’t therefore suitable for anyone who cannot commit to fairly light but frequent physical activity.

This is a responsible and varied position and the ideal candidate will be flexible and adaptable, with a positive outlook and ‘can do’ attitude. In these post-Covid times, many of our lawyers are working remotely, so in addition to assisting with reception & post, you may be asked to locate files and to carry out a range of support tasks for our legal teams, as well as for the HR team. Common sense and a practical and resourceful approach to problem solving is therefore needed.

This role is fully office-based, five days a week, without any option to work on a hybrid basis, so please only apply if that arrangement works for you.

While there are prospects for advancement within business services, this role won’t suit a law graduate seeking a training contract.

We would like you to be able to start as soon as possible. Salary is at market rate.

If you are interested in being considered please send your CV to Sue Bachorski, Head of HR:
