We are looking for a Receptionist for our 11-employee, 3 attorney law office located in the Southside area. This is a full-time, entry-level position for a person interested in a career in the legal field and helping the elderly. This is an in-office position with no work-from-home options.

The Receptionist in our office is expected to provide an excellent first impression to all callers and visitors. The position is the "hub" of the office and the Receptionist filters all information to appropriate team members. Your performance allows the office to be more productive and efficient. The Receptionist position in this office is not like a normal switchboard receptionist position; there is an expectation of attentiveness to verbal and written details, follow-through, and critical thinking involved in the position.

We are looking for candidates with sincere interest or experience in the legal field and/or working with the elderly. Currently, our firm has provided the first legal job for all employees in the office. Almost all of the team has extensive retail or other heavy customer service experience. We place a high value on the client experience and service.

Our office is fast-paced. Most of the week, you may be left feeling like you spent your entire day talking. Our office culture focuses on client service, independent thought and creativity, trust, and accountability. As you gain skills in performing the position's requirements, you may also have time to assist others and gain valuable skills. Our team of 11 has 4 former receptionists in various positions throughout the firm. Considerations will be given to natural skills that can provide value to our team in the future. We have a proven, basic training plan for the position, but your success depends on your ability to learn and work within a team.

Successful performers will have an interest in the legal field and an interest in helping people with long-term disabilities and illnesses such as dementia. Please share any connections you have to these key points of interest.
