A rumination on EC2A, and some opportunities available there
The Epilogue simply loves Exchange Square, near Liverpool Street, London.
Every chance it has, it likes to pop along there for a brisk morning walk, a romantic dusk-time stroll, or a late night drink with all the lovely and very cool people who work there. This year, The Epilogue has even decided to holiday in the vicinity, replacing its usual sojourn at Juan-les-Pins with a weekend at the nearby Hoxton Hotel. There, it shall compare haircuts with seven blokes called Shane, all of whom are gurus in social media optimisation agencies.
If you haven’t been to the area, you really must try it. Excellent restaurants nearby include the excellent Eyre Brothers (‘exceptional service… delicious food’ says someone on Trip Advisor), watering holes such as Bedroom Bar (on tonight – Soulclectica!) and best of all, ice-skating at Broadgate over Christmas. Gosh, if only one could be really lucky and land a job there…
Which brings us, eventually, to the point. Our friends at Herbert Smith Freehills have two superb opportunities right now. One is for a TMT Associate with between three and five years’ PQE. As the listing says, ‘the team forges close client relationships which are consolidated through secondments to clients including Google, BSkyB, O2 and Vodafone, to name a few.’
The other is for an Outsourcing and Technology Associate (also three to five years’ PQE) to join a team working on clients such as including BAA, British American Tobacco, BSkyB, BP, O2, UBS, and Vodafone.
So: great jobs in a great location. Hurry over to Professionals in Law to find out more, before it’s too late. AB
