Keystone Law is looking for a bright, enthusiastic and organised individual to join our award-winning Marketing and Business Development team.

It would be particularly well suited to someone who has a passion for uncovering details and writing.

With over 400 senior lawyers covering almost all areas of law, every day the successful candidate will learn about a wide range of confidential, complex and high-profile cases and why Keystone achieved success for their clients.

No experience is necessary, as full training will be given for all elements of this position, working alongside the Business Development Manager but a positive can-do and enthusiastic approach is essential.

  • Contacting clients for feedback.
  • Researching and updating contact information for key contacts.
  • Monitoring and updating online listings. 
  • Liaising with external researchers at various directories and arranging interviews for our lawyers.
  • Helping lawyers to prepare for the interviews and then sitting in on the calls with them.
  • Notifying the directories about new lawyers who join the firm and updating their credentials accordingly.
  • Maintaining the Keystone Law profile pages on external websites.
  • Compiling results when published and sharing the results internally.
  • Work alongside the PR team to produce materials which can be shared externally to celebrate achievements, including press releases and social media posts.
  • Help the lawyers to celebrate achievements via their own social media pages and creating content for them if they need assistance.
  • Identifying quotes and other key pieces of information which can be used in pitches, proposals and to help promote Keystone more generally.
  • Updating lawyer website profiles with results when the directories are published.
  • Researching information for pitches, award submissions and helping to draft entries. 
  • Ad hoc marketing, event coordination and support.

Ideal applicants will:

  • Have excellent spelling and grammar skills.

  • Have excellent organisational skills whilst also being calm and methodical when dealing with large amounts of data and information.
  • Be able to manage and prioritise multiple projects running in parallel with tight deadlines.
