Life in paradise doesn’t have to mean compromising on your career. This large offshore law firm is growing consistently across its network of global offices, nowhere more so than in Bermuda where its corporate practice goes from strength to strength.
This is an opportunity for an experienced lawyer to work with some of the best corporate partners on the island, advising an international client base on the Bermudian elements of high-value cross-border transactions spanning mainstream corporate and investment funds. Everyone is client facing and encouraged to play an active role in business development, making this ideal for someone seeking long-term career progression as well as a change from the typical City law firm. The low-tax salary and package is attractive.
Bermuda offers you the opportunity to live and work in one of the world’s most desirable locations. The island benefits from a mild year-round climate, never too cold in the winter and rarely too hot in the summer. It is famed for its picture-postcard pink sand beaches and crystal-clear ocean, but it also has plenty of history and boasts all the attractions associated with a luxury holiday destination. And if you should need a break from island life, with regular direct flights to London, New York and other parts of the US, it is particularly well connected.
Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically around 4-6 months later (depending on your notice period). Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation.
Highly competitive salary (expected to be in the range of USD140k-USD190k), low tax-rate. Comprehensive benefits, bonus, and relocation package (flights + temporary accommodation on arrival + expenses allowance).
To secure a work permit for Bermuda you will need to be admitted in the UK or an equivalent Commonwealth jurisdiction (such as Australia, New Zealand, Canada or South Africa) and have at least three years’ post-qualification experience. For this role, relevant corporate experience with a well-regarded commercial firm is essential.
