At VWV we pride ourselves in providing quality legal advice and ensuring that our clients are at the centre of all that we do. Our finance department play a crucial role in keeping the firm running smoothly and efficiently. Its hard work behind the scenes is instrumental to maintaining our strong reputation. Due to exciting growth, we are looking for a Legal Cashier to join us on a full time basis.
Is this your next career move?
Have you had some experience with financial transactions which has sparked your interest in a career in finance? As we continue to grow as a firm, our finance department are only getting busier which has led to a brand new opportunity in our Bristol office. You'll provide vital support within the Client Account Team, in addition to the wider finance department.
In this team of 4 (including yourself) you'll assist with client transactions in and out of various accounts ensuring accurate and prompt allocation. You'll be monitoring transactions into multiple bank accounts, reviewing and setting up bank payments, dealing with transaction requests and more. Outside of your key duties you'll also support the rest of the finance team such as verifying and processing disbursements.
And if in the future you're keen to learn about other areas in finance, or perhaps even look to qualify, the support will be there for you.
Why choose us?
With around 450 employees we're a sizeable firm that still continues to grow, known for its friendly and welcoming culture where team work and collaboration is key, watch this short video to see what our people have to say about us.
For safety at this time our people are working remotely, though everyone is looking forward to getting back to the office at least part time, where our lovely culture is clear to see. We work hard but we also have fun and we're missing that social interaction with each other that really embeds our culture. That said, we have video meeting capability so we can still stay in contact as much as possible. This unusual time has proved we can work effectively as a business from home if needs be, so whilst we don't yet know how things will look when we return to our offices, what we do know now, is we can discuss the individual flexible needs for every employee and team without agility barriers.
We offer a competitive salary, holiday allowance that increases after 12 months with the firm, contribute to your pension pot, have an informal dress code which allows you to dress appropriately for your day no matter what day it is, give you private healthcare and life assurance, as well as offering a range of discounts with local businesses and with so many excellent internal training programmes on offer to everyone it's so easy to develop and improve your skills.
We’re passionate about creating an inclusive workplace that promotes and values diversity, we're striving to create an environment where everyone, regardless of background, can reach their full potential.
So who are we hoping will apply?
You'll have some previous experience working with financial transactions in an office environment. Perhaps you are currently a Legal Cashier looking for a new challenge, or maybe you have had some dealings with finance as part of your role and would like to pursue a career in this area. Whatever your motivation, your friendly and positive attitude will fit right in with the team.
Although familiarity of working in a law firm will be beneficial, it's not essential. Strong written and verbal communication skills as well as solid IT skills, in particular MS Excel will surely help you hit the ground running.
If you are switched on, sociable and enjoy working with numbers we would love to hear from you.
