New Enquiries Assistant – based at Northampton
We are currently seeking a full-time New Enquiries Assistant to help us drive our service to clients and potential clients enquiring about our services.
Working as part of our Marketing Team, this is an exciting role that will bring you into contact with a diverse range of people with a multitude of enquiries. Dealing with in-bound enquiries, the challenge is to clearly define the enquirer’s legal needs, position a solution and liaise with our lawyers regarding setting the appointment for a further discussion.
It is important that you are empathetic, able to quickly grasp the issues, match the client’s need across a range of legal disciplines, and provide an excellent level of service to new clients as part of their first experience of the firm.
In addition to securing appointments for our lawyers, the New enquiries Team is responsible for sending out and following up quotes. You therefore need to be able to convert opportunities into new business and have a willingness to ‘close’.
The successful candidate will possess a polite and confident telephone manner with excellent IT, organisational and time management skills.
Legal experience is preferred but not a prerequisite and training will be provided; however, the successful candidate will be expected to work within an in-bound call environment and must be capable of working consistently well within a team, and dealing with a large but manageable volume of enquiries.
The role has the potential to provide a route in to the legal professions for the right candidate, depending on performance.
