PA support is becoming an increasingly sophisticated, varied and demanding job, requiring an intensive use of technology and a wide range of creative, administrative, organisational and technical skills.

  • Liaising with our marketing department for the organisation of client events and the preparation of mailings;
  • Preparing and submitting the lawyers' expense notes, processing incoming invoices and liaising with our accounting department as well as reviewing the lawyers' time entries in preparation of billing.
  • Who we are looking for

  • You have an excellent command of English, French and Dutch (both written and verbal) ;
  • You are flexible and able to build relationships with various stakeholders;

    The focus will be on your personal and professional development.

    In addition, we offer a highly competitive remuneration package in line with your qualifications and experience (including luncheon vouchers, an employee assistance programme (EAP), in-house self-service restaurant, free public transportation, an insurance package, extra-legal holidays, sports facilities etc.).
