Job Details

  • Values-driven firm
  • Competitive salary
  • Friendly, family-run practice
An established multi-site firm is seeking a Costs Manager to enhance their dedicated team. Positioned in the heart of Stockport but with offices across the North West, this opportunity offers the blend of a rich heritage with forward-thinking values.

This role demands a professional who appreciates the significance of delivering meticulous cost services, maintaining the firm's reputation for excellent client care. You'll directly impact families and businesses across the region, while nurturing your own professional skills in a supportive environment.

You will have a background in legal aid billing, coupled with competence in Microsoft Office and, ideally, a legal case management system. Your strong communication skills, both written and verbal, will be essential, along with the ability to manage time effectively and work both autonomously and as part of a team.

Expect to receive comprehensive support, opportunities for professional development, and the warmth of a friendly, family-run practice. Benefit from an ethos that values quality advice, focusing on what's best for you and the clients you will serve.

If you're seeking a constructive step in your costs drafting career with a firm that prizes work-life balance and high-calibre client service, this is your call to action.
