Corporate Solicitor - NQ - 4
Another corporate role I hear you cry! Yes, indeed. For those with more advanced PQE this may be the part where you turn away. If you're still with me, let's get straight to it - why is this different to everything else?
The truth is the differences are subtle. At its heart it probably stems from the culture. Whilst the firm itself has a good critical mass and a great corporate profile both locally and nationally it still retains a collegiate approach to things. I'm not saying there are hugs on offer at the end of every deal (though you may be able to negotiate that) but rather there is a sense of unity and support - a real team dynamic.
I recognise that will be a plus for some and non-plus for others but it does dictate the feel of going into work.
It is still a corporate role with principal emphasis on mainstream M&A into the mid-cap market and above so all the expectations that come with that exist here. Their work encapsulates any number of sectors but also includes a number of international aspects both in Europe and the US.
What they do is reward performance and effort - the firm and corporate team has a track record of progressing their people up the career ladder without hinging that requirement on PQE but rather the ability and aptitude to take on responsibility.
There is a mandate to recruit but the corporate team have struck the right balance around recruiting long before desperation to hire sets in. What it means is that the team have a very clear desire to hire good quality people from the local market. By its nature that can often mean looking at those that have come from a larger national or regional practice but they are as comfortable looking at those from boutique and highly regarded practices with a strong corporate transactional pedigree.
