Role: Cashier – Business Recovery Unit
Hours: Full Time
Term: Fixed Term contract – 1 year

Our highly regarded Debt Recovery team is based only in our Taunton office, but it provides a national service for Government Departments, Local Authorities, insurance companies, managing agents, businesses and individuals. The team specialises in all aspects of debt recovery including pre legal collections, litigation, enforcement and insolvency action.
The team is divided into different sections. In this role you will work on our cashiering team and on a day to day basis, your role will involve:
- Processing electronic funds transfers, cheque and cash receipts on Clarke Willmott systems
- Processing CHAPS payments using internet banking systems
- Processing credit/debit card payments
- Processing payment book requests and sending on to debtors
- Issuing cheques
- Undertaking Inter-Account transfers
- System account opening
- Dealing with unallocated receipts
- Daily queries both external and internal
- Ensuring compliance with the Solicitors’ Accounts Rules where applicable
- Assisting with general administration tasks for the whole team when needed
It is a fast-paced role and you will need to juggle many priorities. You will need to be flexible to be an effective team player but you will also get support and training from your colleagues and manager in a relaxed but professional and hard-working team.
It is an integral part of this role that you comply with data security and all firm policies and procedures.
You will ideally have experience in a financial or cash handling environment and have strong social skills, with the ability to communicate effectively with people from a wide range of backgrounds. You will certainly be extremely organised, with excellent time management skills, a keen eye for detail and able to work under pressure.
We will train you on our software systems but we will expect a good aptitude for technology and keyboard skills.
If you have used case management systems or databases in the past that would be helpful.
You may be a graduate in any subject or you may have pursued some further education studies (A levels, BTEC, NVQs etc) having achieved at least 6 more GCSE passes at grade C or above (or equivalent) including English and Maths.
