Job Description

Overview
At KPMG, you'll join a team of diverse and dedicated problem solvers, connected by a common cause: turning insight into opportunity for clients and communities around the world.

The KPMG Law team has an exciting opportunity for a self-motivated Legal Administrative Assistant. In this role, you will combine your strong organizational skills and stakeholder management to provide executive level support.

The role involves proactively organizing, supporting, and assisting the KPMG Law legal professionals in delivering high quality and timely service, information, and advice to internal and external clients. There is a specific focus on being an integral part of the KPMG Law team in executing its strategy, and meeting performance objectives and long-term strategic aspirations.

This is a hybrid position.

What you will do
  • Manage time, resources, workflow and deadlines of legal professionals, including opening up new files, conducting and coordinating conflict searches and other file-opening processes and procedures, maintaining a filing system for all documents, compiling and organizing materials for work-in-progress, and maintaining a limitations diary
  • Work collaboratively with a team of legal professionals
  • Assist in the preparation and submission of time and expense reports
  • Receive, digitize and direct all KPMG correspondence
  • Provide general administrative support to legal professionals such as filing, answering the telephone, making travel arrangements, photocopying, scanning and binding materials as required
  • Assist with special projects
At times, business needs arise and employees are required and agree to work beyond their normal work day or work week to fulfill the accountabilities required for their job. Likewise, people need time to devote to personal matters, and our approach to flexibility provides for this.

What you bring to the role
  • College diploma in a legal assistant program or equivalent
  • Minimum 1 year experience in a similar role, working in a professional business law focused legal environment and/or equivalent combination of education, training and experience
  • Relevant experience in managing and supporting Senior Leadership (preferably gained within a legal/professional/corporate services environment)
  • Excellent commitment to providing quality and responsive customer service
  • Outstanding time management, problem solving and organizational skills gained in a high volume environment with competing demands and constant changes
  • Proven ability to take responsibility and ownership for tasks
  • Advanced Microsoft office skills (Word, PowerPoint and Excel)
  • Proven team player with the ability to create strong working relationships at various levels and a flexible approach to their work
  • Superior communication skills whilst maintaining the highest level of personal and professional integrity
