Does the name Donna Paulsen mean anything to you?
If not … she’s a fictional character on the popular TV series – Suits.
Donna plays Harvey Specter’s highly capable … ultra-organized … and exceptionally effective legal assistant.
(Technically … she was promoted to COO this season … but that’s beside the point.)
Donna never sacrifices quality in order to scratch a ‘to-do’ off her list.
She’s process oriented … with an urgency that has her constantly contemplating what more she can do to ‘advance the cause’!
What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?
That said … while Donna is not a ‘real’ person … our client is looking to hire ‘a real-life Donna’ at their law firm!
Let’s face it … when you’re starting your career, it’s not easy to find a job.
When you do … you may find yourself working for a tyrannical boss and surrounded by a bunch of lunatics.
So … the question begs … why would you want to work for my client’s law firm?
Well … I could go on and on about the merits of this group but you’ll see for yourself … within minutes of meeting them!
POSITION: OFFICE ASSISTANT
LOCATION: DOWNTOWN TORONTO (7 MINUTE WALK FROM UNION STATION)
Provide phenomenal administrative support to all members of the firm.
Now, we realize ‘administrative support’ is a broad term … but that’s absolutely by design.
The individual selected for this role will be truly be the ‘cog in the wheel’ of the firm.
The responsibilities of the Office Assistant are practically too many to even list!
The essence of the role is to support the firm in every facet of their business.
The attitude required is … ‘no job is too big or too small’.
You don’t need to be a legal secretary … you simply need to the right work ethic!
Here’s just a ‘taste’ of what you’ll be doing;
- Maintain the filing system (opening, updating and closing of files)
- Prepare files and documentation for calls and client meetings
- Make travel arrangements, restaurant reservations and manage calendars
- Prepare first drafts of correspondence and documents
- Prepare billing statements
- Schedule client calls and meetings
- Database Management
- Attend internal meetings and work on miscellaneous projects
- Handle a bunch of random, (sometimes wacky) … ‘out-of-the-blue’ errands
Approximately 1 or 2 years of experience in a similar type of office-based support role
Wicked attention to detail!
A ridiculous sense of urgency … and creativity
The ability to ‘get the job done’ … period
SALARY: $40,000 – $45,000
OTHER: benefits … and an ‘ultra-normal’ work environment
