Victor Welsh Solicitor and Notary Public is looking for an enthusiastic and confident individual with good personal and communication skills, the ability to show initiative and be a team player in a busy working environment.

The work gives access to confidential and sensitive personal and commercial information on clients and the Apprentice must be of the highest integrity and understand and comply with data protection law and practice in the utmost detail. The Apprentice will be required to sign a confidentiality agreement and comply with the terms set out in that agreement.

The Apprentice’s role will include answering all inbound telephone calls and taking enquiries from clients and potential clients including putting calls through to the relevant solicitor, and if the solicitor is not available to take a direct call, taking contact details of the client or potential client to arrange a call back as soon as possible.

The Apprentice will be required to make a number of outbound telephone calls in order to assist the solicitors in making appointments and dealing with their clients generally.

Training will be provided and the Apprentice will be required to read from a telephone script when answering the telephone.

The role will also include assisting the Notary Public, Mr Victor Welsh, with Notary clients including booking Notarial appointments and preparing Notarial documents and records. 

Ongoing training will be provided to the Apprentice in all aspects of the role and the Apprentice will liaise with their mentor at Jarvis Training Management Ltd in that regard.   

The Apprentice must be clear, concise when talking to clients on the telephone. The Apprentice must be polite and patient at all times when dealing with clients. This is essential as a large number of Notary clients have a limited English vocabulary and can be difficult to understand.

Qualifications and experience will be taken into consideration. However, the firm values highly a person’s enthusiasm and willingness to learn new skill sets. 

The role will include, but is not restricted to:

  • Answering incoming telephone calls in a professional, efficient manner, taking and forwarding messages when necessary
  • Making Notarial appointments with existing and new clients and liaising with the Notary Public
  • Opening, sorting and routing incoming mail and preparing outgoing mail
  • Recording details of all incoming and outgoing mail using the online postal register
  • Operating office machines such as the photocopier, scanner and facsimile
  • Photocopying, collating and distributing documents for staff across the organisation
  • Preparing and filing documents accurately and promptly
  • Maintaining and updating the filing system
  • Archiving of files and paperwork
  • Greeting and meeting visitors
  • Basic IT Skills
