Facilities Assistant (0766)

Our busy Facilities team in Leeds are looking for a Facilities Assistant to join them on a full-time, permanent basis.

What does the team do?

Our Facilities Services team are one of the many teams that keep our business running smoothly. A key cog to the Leeds office, the team ensures we have a great office environment to work in and all the facilities we need to be successful. You'll work closely with our Facilities Co-ordinator and our Trainee Facilities Manager to provide crucial support to the whole office.

What will you be doing?

The Facilities Assistant role requires someone who is resourceful and organised. Being a law firm we generate a lot of documents so you'll be required to deal with post room requests from our Lawyers and Support staff as well as external providers of postal and logistics services. You'll need to be able to work to deadlines and enjoy interacting with lots of different people.

Essentially the role will involve processing all mail (incoming and outgoing), photocopying and scanning, as well as printing emails and other large documents. There is some complex equipment – but don't worry we'll give you all the training you need.

You'll also assist the team with general duties involving the day to day running of the office from stationery orders and maintenance requests through to running errands and health and safety issues.

So, what are we looking for?

The role requires someone with previous office based experience and knowledge of IT packages including Microsoft Word, Excel and Outlook. You'll need to be able to multi-task but still maintain attention to detail. You'll be a motivated pro-active team player with excellent communication skills. You'll have a flexible approach and be consistently helpful.

You must also be able to work on your own initiative and have the ability to work to deadlines. We're looking for enthusiastic individuals who love working as part of a team; this is a really social role interacting with lots of different people – this is where your great customer services skills come in.

What makes it great to work here?

We continually work hard to create an open culture that sets us apart from other firms. Our culture gives us much more of a human feel, emphasising that we're more than just suits!  We like and make time for each other enabling us to establish professional relationships that can often become lasting friendships. 

Through our D&I initiatives we create an environment in which difference is valued.  We have a Diversity and Inclusion Group, led by our Board Sponsor, which works with our colleague networks (we currently have firm supported networks for race, ethnicity, and cultural heritage, LGBTQ+, disabilities, families, and women's career development and we're in constant dialogue with our people about how we expand our networks to better support everybody).  We encourage applicants from all social backgrounds, ethnicities, disabilities, gender identities and sexual orientations. Please get in touch to let us know how we can give you the best possible recruitment experience.

As signatories to the Mindful Business Charter, it's important that our people are able to maintain healthy and happy lives, both in and out of work.  We have a number of resources and initiatives designed to support health and wellbeing, including our team of dedicated mental health first aiders.  We recognise that getting the right work life balance is a priority for all of us and we're very happy to talk flexible working, full-time or part-time working patterns.  We also recognise the challenges of relocation and post-pandemic return to the office.

And that's not all, alongside a competitive salary you'll receive a flexible benefits package so you can choose and vary the benefits that matter most to you.
