The Firm

My client is a cloud-based, next generation law firm with full service offices in Central London. An exciting, disrupter law firm which combines the best characteristics of both conventional (full service, smart-working offices and a real team collaborating and working alongside each other) and virtual (very high remuneration, use of clever and efficient technology and total flexibility) law firms; but without the downsides of either one. The firm is currently growing at over 50% per annum.

At this crucial stage on its journey, the firm has an opportunity for a self-motivated, smart-thinking and grounded legal cashier to join the law firm’s finance team, to report to the Financial Accountant. The firm is a limited company ABS and the members of the board have started, grown and in some cases, sold businesses – thus the team works in a highly entrepreneurial, ‘private equity-style’ way in running this top quality law firm.

This firm is very positively run. It values fresh thinking which challenges the norm and it works fast and deliberately in order to achieve targeted, strategic growth and high performance for its clients.

Thus in this role you will be given a real opportunity to impact your business ideas and develop further skills as part of an excellent accounts team. The team is working hard to maintain the order and transparency of the company’s finances.

The Role

  • As the legal cashier of this entrepreneurial law firm you will have responsibility for:
  • Compliance with firm’s money laundering requirements and SRA Rules
  • Providing an efficient and effective service dealing with most aspects of client account transactions
  • Logging / reviewing all client monies, office expenses and disbursements
  • Including identifying all monies received in Office & Client accounts 
  • Performing client and office bank reconciliations
  • Performing daily banking duties
  • Processing and reconciling disbursements, resolving discrepancies, analysing and resolving issues related to disbursements
  • Reviewing and answering all client account queries
  • Assisting staff with queries relating to Client Matters
  • Client account payments
  • Performing other duties as reasonably directed by your line manager
  • Assisting with filing, archiving and other ad-hoc duties as required

Key skills:

  • Previous legal cashiering experience is essential.
  • Client cashiering knowledge is a necessity.
  • Extensive and up to date knowledge of SAR
  • Excellent communications skills with the ability to work to tight deadlines
  •  IT literate; good MS Word/Excel. Previous working knowledge of ALB (Advanced Legal Business Solutions) would be highly desirable but not necessary      

The firm is expected to continue on its remarkable growth trajectory and your efforts, ideas and skills will help to shape how the firm does so continuously, profitably and efficiently.

You

You will be a legal cashier with an understanding of or experience gained in a law firm environment and a background and strong track record in private practice – and be someone who really enjoys and thrives in a professional services environment.

You will be the personality type who relishes a challenge and who creates a calm, assured and well-executed, detail-conscious outcome in a complex operations environment.

You will look to work closely as part of a tight-knit and transparent team, but be a self-starter; always looking to challenge the norm and take responsibility to improve things towards better business outcomes.

You will also love working with, inspiring and motivating the people around you to get the most out of them and to enable them to get the most out of themselves.
