About the employer

Goldsmith Bowers is a forward thinking law firm focussed entirely on debt recovery and litigation. We’re small, with big ambitions to offer a highly personalised, customer focussed approach to debt recovery. That won’t make us the cheapest in the market – we’re hoping it will make us the easiest and most pleasant to work with, whether you’re a client or a debtor. And we need good people. People who want to build a career in debt recovery and litigation. People willing to understand the “bigger picture”, to understand the client’s needs and how they want us to interact with their customers in turn. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach here and to succeed, candidates will need to be able to efficiently handle a fast paced environment and provide administration support to our team of Solicitors and Litigation Assistants. Our team is built on experience from some of the UK’s biggest law firms. Our clients include household names through to growing SMEs and with over 200 new clients joining us in the past 2 years, we are going to need some really good people to come and join us. While Goldsmith Bowers is investing heavily in process automation and IT, we exist to serve those clients who want a more human led approach. A named person that they can speak to, that their debtors can speak to, who understands their brand, their customers, and their approach.
