Do you pride yourself on your ability to deliver outstanding customer service? If you do we may have a role that suits you.

We're looking for a Facilities Assistant to join the team in Leeds, providing crucial support to the whole office. The hours will be 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. This is a full-time, permanent position.

What will you be doing?

The Facilities Assistant role is a busy one and 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 - this is a very social role and this is where your great customer service skills come in.

Essentially the role will involve processing all mail (incoming and outgoing), high volumes of photocopying and scanning, as well as printing emails and other large documents. You'll assist the Facilities Supervisor with general duties and work with the Guest Services team in preparing for any events or functions.

Our Facilities Services team are one of the many teams that keep our business running smoothly. They make sure that we have a great office environment to work in and all the facilities we need to be successful. This includes our catering facilities, reception teams, building maintenance, post room and operational support.We couldn't function without them.

What skills are needed?

This role needs some previous office based experience. You'll need to be able to multi-task but still maintain attention to detail, you'll be a motivated team-player with excellent communication skills and have the ability to be flexible and consistently helpful. You must also be self-motivated and have the ability to work on your own initiative. Strong IT skills areneeded as you'll be operating some complex equipment but don't worry we will give you training.

What makes it great to work here?

People are at the very heart of what we do and to succeed we need the most talented and motivated teams in place. Our approach is really quite simple and underpinned by our values. We work hard but we also want our people to enjoy long and successful careers with us. That means making sure that everybody has the opportunity to develop and grow as well as being rewarded for their successes. We also feel it is very important to develop our people from within, so they can learn from the grass-roots upwards and carve out an exciting and interesting career with us.

Secondly, we've worked hard and continue to 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!

There are lots of extra-curricular activities to get involved in too; perhaps you're into charity fund raising, we love to see people keen to get involved with our corporate social responsibility strategy, so much so we'll even give you two days per year on us to get involved.

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

Most of all it's our people that make it a great place to work.
