About You

You will have qualified into another well regarded investment funds practice and made a start to your career as a law firm associate, with a guide of 2-4 years PQE. Experience which matches the role scope is highly preferred, however because of the breadth, it isn't expected that you would be an expert in every area and this shouldn't hold you back from registering your interest.

You will be diligent, hard working and ambitious in your approach.
