The Channel Islands offer a lifestyle that is poles apart from the mainland.  Work-life balance is better, even at the top firms, meaning you will have plenty of time to get involved in everything that island life has to offer.  Lawyers here enjoy a busy social life, whether it is after work drinks with colleagues, any of the numerous sports clubs, or taking advantage of the stunning coastline to try surfing, sailing or just lazing on the beach.  Then, when you need a city fix, frequent flights can have you in London in an hour.  To find out more have a look at our: Origin Legal Guide to Living and Working in the Channel Islands

We have helped many lawyers to relocate to the Channel Islands and without exception, the feedback has been positive.  Roles at this level, especially within employment law, don’t come up very often in the Channel Islands, so if you’ve read this far it may be worth us having a chat.
