Reasons to choose Wilson Browne

IT Assistant - Based in Northampton

Working within the IT team based in Northampton, the successful person will be responsible for providing basic Helpdesk support to users covering primarily Microsoft Office applications, as well as support for printing, internet, e-mail and the case management system.

You will assist in monitoring incoming emails and making on-site visits to branch offices to deal with hardware faults. You will also be involved in providing training on basic functions of Word, Excel and the case management software, either remotely or on-site at branch offices.

You may also be called upon to carry out basic ergonomic assessments if required, however this is optional and not a requirement for the position.

This role will appeal to someone who has a keen interest in IT and who is seeking their first role in this area.

We offer first-class training and development opportunities for the successful candidate.

A clean driving licence and own transport are essential as you’ll be “out and about” keeping us online.

Think of a legal practice and the first thing that comes to mind is ‘lawyers’ or ‘Solicitors’…but there’s a multitude of other opportunities within any large legal practice.

The lawyers are at the very heart of any law firm, but you may be surprised to know that there’s a vast range of roles that make that heart beat.

Wilson Browne Solicitors has a strong reputation based on delivering great advice to businesses and private clients, dating back nearly 200 years. We are proud to have been named Northamptonshire Law Society’s Large Law Firm Of The Year for 2015/2016 and 2017/2018, 2019 and 2021 – pretty impressive !

Many of our lawyers are recognised in the Legal 500 (a who’s who of the legal profession) and we pride ourselves in delivering cost-effective and practical advice to our clients.

Benefits Package

Depending on role and level, we can offer a comprehensive benefits package, which can include:

  • ***NEW*** Salary sacrifice scheme which provides a tax-efficient way to get into a new car.
    • The salary sacrifice car scheme is open to all vehicles whether ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) Hybrid or Electric and provides savings generated through reductions in national insurance and income tax payments.
    • It is a particularly good way to get into an Electric Vehivle (EV) due to not just the savings generated through reductions in national insurance and income tax payments, but 2% Benefit In Kind tax and lower running costs.
    • We are hoping to shortly launch a number of EV charging points across 3 of our offices, with a further rollout in due course.
  • Option to join a pension scheme where we will match up to 4% contribution.
  • BUPA (certain positions only) with the ability to add spouse and/or dependants.
  • Permanent Health Insurance, also known as Group Income Protection, (certain positions only) which pays a percentage of salary after 6 months sickness absence.
  • Regular Long Service Awards
  • Discounted Health Club and Gym Memberships
  • Other flexible benefits such as discounted gym membership, the option to purchase additional annual leave, Childcare vouchers, Health Screening, Retail Discounts Scheme and more.
  • Competitive holiday entitlement that rises with length of service.
  • Death in Service benefit (after qualifying period) paying 3 x salary.
  • Paid Volunteer Leave
