At Aderant, we power the world’s leading law and professional services firms. We focus on delivering world class products and services which are developed, marketed, sold, and supported by superior talent.  This talent has made us the largest independent provider of law firm technology in the world.

You must possess strong communication skills and be able to work closely with both client staff and internal colleagues, sometimes for an extended period.  You must have an analytical outlook and be able to work to high standards, while still ‘getting the job done’ within the deadlines.  Teamwork will be critical to success in this role, as will the ability to motivate yourself and work without direct supervision.

Much of your work will be undertaken at client offices, where you will work closely with client staff and partner with them to meet their requirements.  Part of this work will involve training and presenting to groups of client staff.
