Low taxation, seafood and top litigation – it’s time to move to Jersey

So we’re about a week in to 2014, and you’re already feeling in a rut. Same colleagues, same clients – and an annoying deficiency of oysters, obscure politicians and tricksy Normanesque dialects.

Sounds like you’re just about ready to get yourself a job in Jersey.

Handily, our friends at Carey Olsen might be able to help. You’ll know these folk as a market leading offshore law firm, with offices not just in Jersey but also in the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Cape Town and the City of London.

Currently, the firm is looking to build its litigation practice. In their own words:

We are looking for a litigator with good experience of the law of Jersey. Work types may include contentious trusts, commercial litigation, financial services and general civil litigation. The role will likely be appointed at Associate level with the opportunity for internal promotion, although for exceptional candidates with a depth of relevant experience a Senior Associate position may be available from the outset. We are open to the role being performed from a London base, with travel to Jersey for hearings.

Another one:

We are looking to expand the group with an additional newly qualified lawyer who may be a Solicitor of England and Wales, or of Scotland or perhaps an English Barrister. The work will be challenging and interesting and we will also give the opportunity for the Associate, in due course, to qualify locally and exercise rights of audience.

Full details for these and other Carey Olsen vacancies can be found here.

Best of luck. And if these don’t take your fancy, check out the other opportunities available at Professionals in Law. AB
