About Us

Trust Accountant

Want a work-life balance?

Well now you can have it! A rare part-time opportunity has become available in our Administration Team for an experienced Trust Accountant.

The hours associated with this role will be Monday, Tuesday and Friday 8.30am – 5.00pm (sometimes until 5.30pm depending on workload).  You will be required to cover the sick leave and annual leave of the other Trust Accountant in the team from time-to-time, so flexibility is a must.  

The role

You will be required to do all the processing necessary to run and balance the firm’s trust account, which includes all payments, receipts, write-offs and journals, bill processing, term deposits, bank reconciliation, month-end and more. 

About you

Ideally you will have had previous experience in a similar legal trust account administration role, using InfinityLaw.   

You will be familiar with AML, FATCA/CRS, NZLS Client Care and Trust Account Guidelines, and have a high level of accuracy and data entry speed.

A relevant tertiary qualification would be advantageous, however training can be provided for the right individual.
