Practice Manager and Compliance Officer for Finance & Administration (COFA)

Peace Legal Ltd are looking to appoint a Practice Manager to take over from their current manager upon his retirement.

The Role involves:

  • Responsibility for maintaining a compliant Legal Practice and as the firm’s COFA to continue compliance with all agencies including the SRA, Law Society, Legal Aid Agency, HM Revenue & Customs etc.
  • The ability to work collaboratively with our existing Compliance Officer and Legal Cashier to uphold professional standards and remain compliant with our wider obligations. We pride ourselves on exceeding the Lexcel Practice Management Standards and the need to retain this is paramount.
  • Taking responsibility for the renewal of annual Practising Certificates and Professional Indemnity Insurance is essential, along with the analysis of quarterly VAT returns and internal financial reviews.
  • Negotiating, reviewing and renewing contracts with suppliers and insurers, recruitment responsibilities, employee development, maintaining appropriate records, and ensuring business continuity.

The role would suit someone who has ongoing legal accounting experience in managing or supporting the management of a busy small/medium size practice. If you are ready to make the next step in your career and be part of a legal practice that is going places, then please get in touch. We may be just what you are looking for.

Although there is a strong support structure within our firm, a period of co-working and “training” with our outgoing Practice Manager is envisaged to ensure a smooth transition.

Salary will be competitive and whilst the role is predominantly office based, we do support flexible working where appropriate.

Please call Steven Corry, our current Practice Manager, on 01226 341111 or 07896 280 400 for an informal fact-finding discussion. Alternatively, send your details/CV to: Steve Corry, Peace Legal Ltd. 6, Barnsley Road, Wombwell, Barnsley S73 8DD or email Steve at: steve.corry@peacelegal.co.uk
