Security packages cover wind turbines, property portfolios, vehicles, yachts and plenty more asset classes.

What does the ideal candidate look like?

You'll either be a corporate or banking lawyer with at least one year's post qualification experience gained from a regional or city firm keen to specialise in a broad range of banking law. You'll enjoy working collaboratively; bring intellectual rigour and an incisive approach to sometimes challenging and complex issues. You'll have an analytical mind and enjoy the intellectual challenge that this work presents dealing across a variety of transactions. Your pragmatism and commercial outlook together with excellent drafting skills will be vital in supporting our clients.

So what's in it for you?

This a great opportunity to join a client centric team on an upward trajectory with a firm who supports your career path through our lawyer career framework, with a collaborative approach, a strong team ethos and a commitment to development both professionally and personally.

Our location in Bristol is just a five minute walk from Bristol Temple Meads station and a short stroll to Cabot Circus and restaurants. The office is currently undergoing an impressive refurbishment that not only encourages collaborative working but future proofs the office space and supports the way we aspire to work.

In addition, through our D&I practices and programmes we work hard to ensure that difference is visibly valued and welcomed. Visit our D&I page to find out more.
