LOD – November 2023

Delivery Manager

The role:

We’re looking for a Delivery Manager to join our growing, global team.  The Delivery Manager will be responsible for supporting our lawyers and paralegals to help us deliver outsourced legal services for our clients.  

It’s a newly created role, helping us continue to innovate and deliver to the highest standards.  It’s an exciting time to join Managed Services, as client demands for more flexible resourcing continue to increase. 

The Team:

We’re market leaders, with an experienced team already in place.  Delivery Management at LOD is a global function, with members at a variety of experience levels. 

Our Delivery team operates at the crucial cross-section of our lawyers, our clients and the HQ team.  As part of the global team, you’ll collaborate with colleagues in a supportive environment, supporting inhouse legal departments and contracting teams to help them rethink their operating models, achieve greater efficiencies and increase the value they deliver back to their business stakeholders.

You’ll have plenty of support and guidance, but will also need to work autonomously at times. You’ll ideally have experience and an interest in working with legal professionals, as this is a visible role, engaging with various legal professionals daily.

  • Reporting on team performance and preparing client ready reports.This includes the number crunching required to take raw data and turn it into insightful information as well as suggesting reporting improvements and alternative ways of metrics measurement
  • Ensuring key performance indicators and service level agreements are met

Knowledge management

  • Guaranteeing know-how is captured (including playbooks, institutional/client knowledge, best practices, etc.)
  • Ensuring the team are aware of current best practice, processes, playbooks, SLAs, etc
Your skills, experience and approach will includes
  • Confident providing accurate support in a fast paced environment
  • Pro-active approach and can-do attitude
  • Keeping team motivated and focused on end-goal
  • Can gain credibility and respect from our clients
  • Emotional intelligence to assess any situation and confidence to use initiative/ask for help
  • Strong communication skills to ensure team members understand the task at hand and client expectations are managed
  • Attend and run regular client calls and meetings
  • Willingness to take ownership and see a task and project through from start to completion
  • Experience with core Microsoft products especially Excel and PowerPoint
  • Experience with the G-suite of products would be useful, especially Sheets
