2 x Charities lawyer 1 – 5 (full-time) & 6+ years’ PQE (part-time) LONDON
London law firm’s Charities team is looking to recruit two Charities law solicitors – one of between 1 and 5 years’ PQE on a full-time basis and the other of 6+ years’ PQE on a part-time basis (starting on 21 hours per week). The Charities team forms part of the firm's Commercial Department. They provide legal advice to clients across the full spectrum of the charity and community sector. The work is largely based in England and Wales, although a significant proportion of their clients are based overseas or have international interests.
Applicants for the 1 to 5 year PQE role will have strong corporate and commercial experience, with a reasonable grounding in the law of trusts. It is not essential that candidates demonstrate experience in charity law, though the successful applicant will demonstrate a keen interest in this specialised field of law and a willingness to learn. Of course, applications from charity lawyers will be welcomed. The successful applicant will work with partners and other senior lawyers in the team (and elsewhere in the firm) on a full range of legal matters for charity and institutional clients. You will also be an excellent communicator, good team player and have a keen interest in practice and business development.
For the candidates applying for the 6+ years’ PQE role (part-time) you will be an experienced Charities lawyer with a mix of technical skill, and commercial awareness, combined with experience of the types of issues that typically arise within the sector. You will be familiar with the principles around both regulatory charity law work and drafting commercial agreements. The firm’s charity clients include a number of well-known charities along with several publicly-funded theatres and more conventional voluntary sector organisations.
