Bermuda

Bermuda offers you the opportunity to live and work in one of the world’s most desirable locations. The island benefits from a mild year-round climate, never too cold in the winter and rarely too hot in the summer. It is famed for its picture-postcard pink sand beaches and crystal-clear ocean, but it also has plenty of history and boasts all the attractions associated with a luxury holiday destination. And if you should need a break from island life, with regular direct flights to London, New York and other parts of the US, it is particularly well connected.

To be considered for this role you must have at least 3 years’ experience as a paralegal gained with a national or international law firm (onshore or offshore) in Bermuda, the UK/ Ireland, Australasia, Canada, or South Africa (for work-permit reasons).
