Outstanding immigration professionals - London or Birmingham
PA to Directors & Business Manager
We are seeking additional immigration professionals to join our team. Recognising that the most fabulous people can be hard to find, we're remaining flexible about level of experience and candidates might currently be anywhere from junior adviser up to Associate - or may even be looking at director/partner level roles. We have openings in both our London and Birmingham offices.
What we require from you is a thorough understanding of immigration law (which, as suitable candidates will be aware, means a lot more than just knowing how to assign a CoS and apply for an Entry Clearance!) as well as significant practical experience of advising clients and assisting them across the full range of applications typically made by businesses and high net worth individuals. The ability to communicate clearly (with excellent spoken and written English) is essential, as is the ability to think laterally and demonstrate superb drafting and presentation skills. We're looking for problem-solvers comfortable with the challenge of complex cases and demanding clients, who nonetheless understand the importance of knowing the detail of the law and the very serious consequences that can befall clients when attention is not paid to detail. A strong sense of client service as well as the drive to see things through is also vital and, as you might expect, it is also important to be able to work well alone and as part of a team.
We are prepared to pay a very competitive salary, although the actual figure will obviously depend on your experience and the level at which you join us. We offer good quality work in a supportive, team-oriented environment and actively encourage all team members to build up their own career and profile as well as to develop areas of particular interest. Having said that, this is not a place for the workshy or those wanting to cruise along - reward and progression are definitely available but need to be earned! If making your mark is as important to you as salary, then ASG might well be the right home for you.
Although not essential, other factors that would assist your application include knowledge of immigration into other countries, experience of managing "global" immigration matters and (in particular for those wishing to join at a more senior level) supervisory, management, training, client account management and business development experience.
Please apply with full details of your career to date and ensure you include a cover letter or e-mail setting out what you have to offer and how you could add to our practice. Applications should be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or posted to Chris Lane at: ASG Immigration, 107-109 Great Portland Street, London W1W 6QG
If you prefer, you are very welcome to call Ann Symonds for an initial chat. Please call 020 7299 3330 (if Ann isn't available, please ask for Chris, who will be able to arrange a mutually convenient time).
We look forward to hearing from you.back
We are seeking an outstanding PA to support the work of ASG's Directors and our new Business Manager. This post is based in our London office and will involve executive responsibility from the outset.
Alongside conventional PA work such as diary management and travel bookings, there will be various interesting elements to the role. The successful candidate will be supporting business development, practice management and operations, as well as providing assistance to the Founder/MD with her various business activities. There are ambitious growth plans in place so we are seeking an individual who can grow within the role as the organisation expands and, over time, we anticipate the post developing to become more senior, perhaps with a focus in one or more key areas.
You will need to demonstrate a strong track record of supporting senior management, ideally within a professional services organisation. You need to be able to juggle conflicting priorities, be a whizz at booking travel and have a high level of numeracy. The ability to communicate clearly (with excellent spoken and written English) is essential, as is the ability to think laterally and exercise sound judgment and common sense. We're looking for a problem-solver who is able to keep a tight control on projects and maintain harmony within our friendly and hard-working team. A strong sense of client service as well as the drive to see things through is also vital and, as you might expect, it is also important to be able to work well alone and as part of a team.
We are prepared to pay a competitive salary, based on experience and ability.
