Customer Services Assistant (law degree or working towards one)


Saturday 13 April

This is a challenging and exciting opportunity to work in a growing team, making a real difference to clients and the business. The successful candidate will be the first port of call for clients wishing to progress a claim with the firm. You will need to deliver a positive client experience, and great first impression of the business. Once those calls are complete, the successful candidate will use guidance, skill and judgment to triage those claims with the support of senior members of the team. This is a great opportunity for the right candidate to begin or further a career in litigation and ultimately progress into the legal team.
