Job description


Early Careers Assistant (0908)

The Role

We are currently recruiting for a four month fixed term contract based either in our Sheffield or Manchester office. 

Working as part of this busy team, you must be extremely well organised and be able to work efficiently in a fast-paced environment. You’ll take responsibility for ensuring that the Early Careers team’s processes and procedures run smoothly through the provision of efficient administrative support. 

During this four month fixed term contract, much of your responsibility will revolve around helping the team with screening of application forms and video interviews for the trainee solicitor roles. It’s therefore essential that you have experience of volume recruitment and a robust understanding of applicant tracking systems. Ideally, you’ll have worked in Early Careers or Graduate recruitment previously, as you’ll need to employ this experience to work on your own initiative to schedule screening and shortlisting of candidates.

You’ll be an excellent team player and have the organisational ability to allocate and monitor team workload. You’ll work to ensure that the team are achieving their SLAs and that each team member is on track with their screening targets, resolving any screening related issues that might arise during this busy period.

This is a great opportunity to build upon your knowledge of early careers and graduate recruitment. If you would like to be part of a friendly and experienced team, then we would love to hear from you.

The salary for the role is up to £21,500 depending on experience.


The Benefits

In addition to your basic salary we have a competitive benefits package including pension, critical illness cover, health cash plan, death in service, discounted legal services, 25 days hols (this increases with length of service), discounted online shopping, discounted gym memberships and season ticket loans.
