  • Photocopying
  • Keeping the reception area, meeting room and kitchen clean and tidy
  • Ordering stationery and office supplies

Although the role is primarily based in our Ulverston Office, the successful candidate will be expected to work from any of our offices when required. A full, clean driver’s licence and access to own transport will therefore be an advantage.The successful candidate will be trained in the use of necessary legal software and office procedures.Office hours are 9.00am to 5.00pm.
