Job Ref JMH/A414
Salary City Rates, 20% Tax, Benefits, Relocation
Experience Level 6 - 8 YRS PQE
Practice Area Private Client
Private Client / Trusts / Wealth Management – Senior Associate
Major offshore law firm – Jersey
This leading offshore law firm is looking for an experienced trusts/ private client lawyer to take on a key role in their highly respected Private Wealth team in Jersey. You will be working with high-value clients on a broad range of non-contentious offshore trusts and wealth management matters and you will have every opportunity to build your own network of contacts in the market, making this ideal for someone who is ambitious and career motivated. This is a nice place to work and the prospects for career development are excellent.
The firm is looking for someone who has the gravitas and experience to take a lead role in advising HNW clients and associated wealth management institutions. As such, it is expected that the successful applicant will be in the 5-10 years’ pqe range, qualified in the UK/ Commonwealth and with relevant experience from a leading firm or in-house.
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.
Negotiable depending on experience – full benefits and relocation if applicable.
The firm is actively seeking applicants and intends to interview suitable candidates via videoconference after which you would 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.
