Opportunity for an experienced banking & finance associate to combine a strong career move with a life-changing relocation to Jersey.

This global offshore heavyweight is seeking a senior associate-level finance lawyer to join its highly regarded Jersey banking & finance team. This is an ideal move for someone who craves a change from city life but who wishes to maintain a fast-paced and challenging legal career in which you will be exposed to some of the biggest and best work in the market. Joining as a senior associate you will enjoy extensive client contact and will be fully involved in the firm’s ongoing business development efforts. You will also take lead responsibility on various matters and will play a key role in helping to develop more junior-level colleagues.

You will be UK/Commonwealth qualified with at least 4 or 5 years’ relevant experience of high-value banking and finance work. The role comes with a competitive London level salary, excellent benefits and a good relocation allowance. Opportunities for progression, in what is a fast-growing firm, are excellent.

The Channel Islands

For a city-based lawyer who thrives on big-ticket work but craves an escape from the rat race, few places compete with the Channel Islands, home to two of the world’s premier offshore financial centres. Jersey and Guernsey have strong and highly competitive legal sectors, housing teams that number many alumni of the leading London or international outfits amongst their ranks. They do complex blue-chip work, in a nice environment without the trappings of a big law firm culture. Work-life balance tends to be good, leaving plenty of time to enjoy what is an enviable coastal lifestyle and London is only an hour away making it easy to get that city fix when (or if) you need it.


Interviews will take place by videoconference with start dates typically three or four months later, depending on notice period. Our clients provide comprehensive assistance with licenses (where applicable) and relocation, including temporary accommodation on arrival.
