Job Ref JMH.GY1335
Salary £70k £90k With Reduced Tax Rate (20%). Comprehensive Benefits, Bonus, And Relocation Package
Experience Level NQ - 1 YRS PQE2- 5 YRS PQE
Practice Area Corporate & Commercial
This well-known offshore law firm advises an international client base on some of the most interesting work in the Channel Islands market, particularly its corporate team, which operates across mainstream corporate, banking and finance, and funds/financial services. It is looking for a client focused Associate who enjoys a varied workload and who is keen to take on responsibility both in executing work and in business development. Prospects for career progression are excellent.
This might be interesting for a City lawyer seeking a change of scene without compromising on their career, but equally, may appeal to a lawyer who is currently with a good regional firm, who is attracted by the opportunity to do City style work without the associated lifestyle implications.
The Channel Islands
For a city-based lawyer who thrives on big-ticket work but craves an escape from the rat race, few places compete with the Channel Islands, home to two of the world’s premier offshore financial centres. Jersey and Guernsey have strong and highly competitive legal sectors, housing teams that number many alumni of the leading London or international outfits amongst their ranks. They do complex blue-chip work, in a nice environment without the trappings of a big law firm culture. Work-life balance tends to be good, leaving plenty of time to enjoy what is an enviable coastal lifestyle and London is only an hour away making it easy to get that city fix when (or if) you need it.
Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically around 3-4 months later (depending on your notice period). Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with visas (where required) and relocation.
The role is likely to suit someone with 0-2 years’ experience. You will be admitted in the UK, Ireland or in a Commonwealth jurisdiction (e.g. Australia, New Zealand, South Africa). Applicants will need strong academics (2.1 minimum) and will have trained/practised with a respected City, regional UK or international firm, including experience in at least one of corporate, banking & finance, or investment funds. You will be a confident communicator who enjoys client contact.
Good salary (likely to be in the range of £70k-£90k) with reduced tax rate (20%). Comprehensive benefits, bonus, and relocation package (flights + temporary accommodation on arrival + expenses allowance).
