Funds Lawyer – Associate (2-6 years’ pqe) – Global offshore law firm – Channel Islands
A better lifestyle need not require a compromise on your career. This elite offshore law firm fields a world-class investment funds team full of lawyers with backgrounds at leading City law firms. It advises international clients on the offshore elements of some of the highest value, most complex and most innovative matters in the funds sector, and its lawyers enjoy substantial client contact and involvement from day one. Prospects for career progression are excellent, the salary is comparable to a good City law firm, and you will have a work-life balance that affords you time to enjoy everything that this coastal island lifestyle has to offer.
You will have UK/Commonwealth admission and are likely to be in the 2-6 years’ pqe range (for guideline purposes only – all suitably skilled applicants are welcomed). Relevant funds experience is desirable.
The islands of Jersey and Guernsey might lack the exotic appeal of the Caribbean (for Brits at least) but when you are looking for somewhere to build a life and a great career, these world-class financial centres off the coast of North-Western France, have much to offer. The law firms are thriving, so opportunities abound, and career progression is as good as any market we work with. Lawyers here have a really nice work/life balance leaving ample time to enjoy island life, whether that is socialising in a waterfront bar, taking a clifftop walk, perfecting your surfing technique or just relaxing into the slower pace of life on offer. All within an hour of many UK airports.
Expected salary circa £72k-£100k depending on experience, 20% tax rate, benefits, relocation
The firm is actively seeking applicants and intends to interview suitable candidates via videoconference initially after which you will be invited to the island for in person meetings. We anticipate a start date between three and five months from application (depending on your notice period). Speak to Jason Horobin or Charlotte Hooper at Origin Legal.
