Job Description

Our client is a leading asset manager who are looking to hire a funds lawyer to join them in a role sitting in the front office.


The successful candidate will be supporting the growing product development team, focusing on exchange traded funds. You will be a commercially minded lawyer, advising the business fund launches, structuring and development as well as maintaining current funds in place.

This role is ideal for someone who is looking to move into a more business focused role but is keen to utilise and develop their funds legal experience.


Skills required

  • NQ - 3 years’ PQE* gained in the funds team at a leading private practice firm or in-house legal team. You must have experience with UCITS and advising on related regulatory matters e.g. UCITS V, MIFID II etc.
  • Strong understanding of ETF structures.


*The PQE range stated is purely a guide. We will consider candidates that fall outside of this range if they can strongly demonstrate the required competencies.
