Professional services company Optimum is expanding again and has created a key new role within the legal team.

The Swindon-based business is looking for a legal manager to join its law division, which specialises in property law, wills and probate, and estate planning.

The new post comes hot on the heels of three recent additions to the firm’s accountancy division - two accounts and audit trainees, and an accounts assistant – and the appointment of a legal assistant for the law team.

“We are still expanding, not just because our client base is growing but also because our clients are able to take advantage of the wide range of services we offer, and so we can do more for them,” said Rob Stokes, head of audit at Optimum.

“We have many examples of where our legal and accountancy team have come together to support clients, who benefit from the fact that our services are all under one roof.”

The new legal manager role will entail supporting clients with legal advice, helping develop the legal team, and working closely with head of legal, Iain Mason. It’s open to applicants with legal qualifications and experience.

Iain said: “This is a great opportunity for someone to join us, help steer the direction of our legal division and work on a work on a wide range of cases, within conveyancing, wills and probate.”
