Business Support Assistant (London Office)

A bit about Buckworths

Buckworths was set up in 2011 and has offices in London and Manchester. We are the only law firm in the UK market working exclusively with startups. Due to our innovative and client-centric approach, we are highly sought after as the number 1 advisor for startups based in the UK and seeking to move to the UK.


The team is small and friendly and the office environment is relatively informal. Everyone works hard and is expected to strive at all times to ensure that our clients experience the best possible service. We aim to ensure that working for Buckworths is much more exciting and challenging than working for a more traditional law firm.

You should have experience in business support and be enthusiastic about learning new skills. You should be highly motivated, show outstanding attention to detail and have the ability to multitask, take and precisely follow instructions and be able to prioritise your tasks.
