Swenseth Law Office serving rural business in North Dakota
We have an immediate opening for a full time receptionist and intake specialist. Focusing on aspects of small business development, real estate, estate planning, and support services to the firm's criminal defense lawyer, Swenseth Law is looking to hire someone who is friendly, outgoing, and not afraid to talk on the phone.
ABOUT THE POSITION:
Devils Lake law firm seeks friendly face to welcome our clients and visitors to the office. Due to the confidential nature of the office, personal and professional discretion is a must. Part of your job will be to function as the host to our busy office and pitch-in to lend a hand when needed. “Not my job” should not be part of your vocabulary.
Our ideal candidate will be able to maintain a positive attitude, make suggestions, and follow agreed upon policies and procedures.
Experience with Clio, Adobe Acrobat, Quickbooks, and all features of the Microsoft Office 365 Suite is a plus, but not required. We can train someone to use our software and to understand the law, but we can’t train an attitude, personality, or friendliness.
This is a full-time position with flexibility and freedom earned by figuring out how to get things completed efficiently and to work with others in the office to cover for one another. If you need to run to an appointment, take care of some personal business or even go out of town or stay home with a child or grandchild on short notice -- no problem! As long as you take responsibility for getting your responsibilities covered.
