NQ Corporate Lawyer / NQ Banking Lawyer – Global offshore law firm – Jersey
The Jersey office of this elite offshore law firm is looking for 2019/ 2020 qualifiers who are seeking a career as a corporate lawyer or a banking and finance lawyer. You will be joining a team that advises on the offshore elements of the same high-value transactions that you would be exposed to in a City firm but you will notice that you are working closely with senior lawyers whilst also getting a lot more responsibility and client contact than might be the case elsewhere. This environment encourages people to develop quickly and you will soon have some first-rate experience on your CV, making this a great platform for your career. In the longer term, many people stay within the offshore sector but should you wish to move on to a City firm, experience gained here will be highly valued.
You will have UK/ Commonwealth training with a good commercial law firm – City credentials are welcome, but the firm is equally keen to speak with lawyers from top-tier regional UK firms – and strong academics. You will be a team player with good communication skills and a real enthusiasm for getting involved.
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 £60k-£65k, 20% tax rate, benefits, bonus, 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. Speak to Jason Horobin or Charlotte Hooper at Origin Legal.
