About The Job

Successful businesses tend to have a visionary at the helm. That visionary works along with an integrator to make sure the plans, goals, objectives, and priorities are met.

Our law firm is one of the fastest-growing firms in the country, and we need a Law Firm Administrator to help us reach the next level.

Because of our growth, the way we did things two years ago is not the same way we do them today, and things will be even better a year from now. As our TRIBE grows and our systems and procedures become more sophisticated, we need someone to help implement all of the great ideas, strategies, and visions that our leadership has.

You will help us build a team. You will help us recruit, train, onboard, and retain outstanding TRIBE members. However, it also means that until we get the right people in the right seats, you will be learning and performing a variety of tasks.

As the law firm grows, we serve more clients, and we reward our employees accordingly. If you're the type of person who can withstand changes in the consistency of your job, tasks, and responsibilities, this is probably the job for you. Our aggressive growth plans mean that no two days will be the same. We are looking for a person who is excited by that, not terrified by it.

If you love creating detailed and step-by-step instructions on how to complete every task, this might be the job for you. Part of the job will be creating detailed step-by-step directions and checklists for other roles in the firm so that other members of our team can perform their jobs at the highest level.

Part of the role will be to develop, improve, track, and hold employees accountable for achieving KPIs ("Key Performance Indicators"). Having clearly defined KPIs will give you the freedom and flexibility to get us from point A to point B, without micromanagement.

--- Day-to-day operations. This includes prioritizing the use of support staff; dealing with vendors and suppliers; managing equipment, office services, and facilities; performing or delegating accounting functions; draft, revising, and implementing policies, systems, and procedures.
--- HR & Management. If you have experience managing people, please apply for this job. Managing does not involve setting a work schedule at a fast-food restaurant. It involves setting key performance indicators, checking the progress that employees are making against them, and creating consequences when those goals are either met or not met. We expect that you will have interviewed, hired, and onboarded employees in your prior roles; if you have this experience please do apply.
--- Accounting. Prepares law firm budget; understands our billing system to ensure KPIs are being met, preparation of financial statements, management of reports, and collections.
--- Strategic Planning. Participated in the strategic planning process with management to identify and accomplish short- and long-term organizational goals.
--- Other duties as the needs of the firm evolve.

--- Law Firm Experience is preferred. It would certainly be beneficial if you understood the fundamentals of a law firm, including the financial models, the different roles and responsibilities that people have, and the operations of an office. However, we don't want you to be constrained by your prior experience.
--- Software Knowledge is a must. A basic understanding of accounting software is required. You must have a demonstrated ability to learn new software, and master and teach others how to use software. For example, we use QuickBooks Online. We want you to understand the journal entries that are made in accounting software, and how they directly affect the bottom line of our business.
--- Excellent interpersonal and customer service skills.
--- Detail-oriented and professional.
--- Ability to maintain confidentiality.
