Corporate Lawyer – Global offshore law firm – British Virgin Islands (BVI)
This multi-office offshore law firm is looking for a corporate associate to join its growing team in the British Virgin Islands. The role will entail advising on the BVI aspects of major cross-border deals, spanning mainstream corporate, investment funds, and corporate finance work. It will be ideal for someone who enjoys fast-paced and varied work and who thrives in a client-facing capacity. The firm is ambitious and is looking for someone who is excited by the opportunity to play a significant part in the development of its business in BVI.
You will be admitted in the BVI or England & Wales and are likely to have up to 3 years’ relevant experience of high-value transactional work gained from a City/International or equivalent firm. The role comes with an attractive salary (very low tax), benefits and a relocation allowance.
British Virgin Islands
For some, the BVI is the pick of the Caribbean. A mountainous, rain forested interior surrounded by picture postcard bays, it is probably not far from the idyllic image that might cross your mind when you ponder whether there is ‘more to life’. It’s not for everyone. You will need to be comfortable with a slower pace, you will see its remoteness as a gift rather than an inconvenience, and you will be the sort of person who gets more out of sailing, diving, or lolling on the beach than you do from the buzz of city life. If that’s you, you will love it here. Not to mention that the work, much of it emanating out of China/Asia, is some of the most interesting and challenging in the sector.
Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically four to six months later. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas and relocation, including temporary accommodation and car hire on arrival.
