This role is open specifically for people who are looking to work Flexibly.

Everyone’s lives are different. Maybe you have a start-up business that only takes up some of your time, or perhaps you volunteer and want to get paid work around volunteering? Or you could be a parent or carer taking time-out to support your family? Or are you semi-retired but still want to supplement your income? Maybe you’ve taken a career break and looking to get back into work?

 

There are all sorts of reasons why a traditional working pattern may not be quite right for you and why working more flexibly with us could be just what you were looking for.

If you have the required experience and are looking to work flexibly (eg part time, term time, permanent, fixed term etc) then please feel free to get in touch or hit 'apply'.

Team

We are excited to be creating an integrated tax, legal and regulatory service offering to Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) Managers as part of our market leading tax team. This is a unique and unprecedented opportunity to be part of creating a team in a growing and exciting market. You will be part of the creation and development of a new service offering that AIF Managers have never had from a Big 4 before in an organisation that is focussed on people, development and flexibility.

This is a priority growth area for the firm, and specifically for our well established Tax and Legal practice. We believe it is a truly distinctive offering for a Big 4 firm. We are extremely fortunate to have a hugely experienced and market leading Partner moving from a market leading US law firm to lead and build this team.

As well as being part of an exciting new team and offering within an established AIF tax team, you will also have the benefit of being part of a much larger team of lawyers across the firm including a network of Financial Services lawyers.

Role

We’re looking for a UK qualified lawyer specialising in AIFs and with experience drafting offering and organizational documents, liaising with local counsel, advising on fund structures and negotiating side letters.

You will have significant client contact and be working on exciting bespoke work for a variety of challenging clients.

Your role will involve managing more junior staff whilst also having the unique opportunity to be part of the development of the team as the business grows.

You will be involved in working on mandates on behalf of financial institutions, fund managers, investment funds and institutional investors. There will be significant variety in the role.

This role will also involve networking with colleagues across the firm’s practices and offices.

Experience & Skills

  • Working knowledge of applicable UK and EU regulations and familiarity with structuring across multiple jurisdictions is required.
  • Ideally, candidates would have experience with both open-ended and closed-ended fund structures, but this is not a requirement.
  • Ideal candidate is at least 5 years qualified and has relevant experience advising sophisticated financial institutions, fund managers, investment funds and/or institutional investors.
  • Strong attention to detail, a solid work ethic, willingness to learn and adapt, and excellent communication skills are necessary for this role.

Tax

We help organisations and the people who run them answer the big business questions. How should we raise finance? Where should we be based? How should we reward our people? With some 3,300 experts whose expertise covers every conceivable area of taxation, we’re one of the UK’s leading tax practices.
