Finance Executive (Billing Executive) - Bristol

The firm

Bond Dickinson is a dynamic UK law firm providing a comprehensive legal service to our clients across a wide range of legal expertise and sectors, from seven cities across the UK including London.  We are committed to maximising the potential of our people and recruiting, developing and retaining market-leading talent across all our teams. 

We've made no secret of our ambitions. In fact they've been at the heart of our vision "To be a top 20 UK law firm by 2020, recognised for delivering an outstanding client experience."  Growth has had a significant role to play and the recent announcement of our exciting transatlantic union with Womble Carlyle is a step in that direction, creating a Global Top 100 law firm, Womble Bond Dickinson in November of this year.

The role

Central to these ambitions are our very talented lawyers, but they couldn't achieve their results without the ongoing support from our Finance team who have an essential role to play in growing the business and maintaining our financial performance.  Our Billing Executives play a vital role in ensuring the firms' billing is maximised, including proactive WIP management, whilst working closing with the rest of the Finance Team and Business Assurance Unit.

Producing bills, credit notes and dealing with e-billing will form part of your day to day role, but aside from this you'll be organising and attending working capital meetings with partners and fee earners and looking for opportunities to increase billing and improve processes.

The person

Confident and engaging, you'll need to have a proven ability at influencing at the highest level.  Your communication skills (both written and verbal) need to be fluent and articulate and you'll also need to be IT savvy and comfortable working with MS Office packages, specifically Excel as well as bespoke E-billing systems.

We're looking for a natural problem solver, who can think creatively about a situation and use common sense and initiative to reach a resolution. 

Ideally we'd love to hear from those who have experience of working in a billing/finance role within a law firm or other professional services environment.

So what makes it so great to work here?

We continually 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!  We like and make time for each other enabling us to establish professional relationships that become lasting friendships.

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.

Next steps

So if what matters most to you is being part of a committed, talented and dynamic team, who go that extra mile to provide an outstanding experience to clients both internal and external, then why not get in touch to find out more.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me (lisa.gater@bonddickinson.com)
