    The Firm

    Our client is a top 200 law firm in the UK with a strong reputation for delivering high quality legal services, combined with a personal and pragmatic approach to complex legal problems. They have around 120 staff, based across three established offices in London and Cambridgeshire.

We also complete audits to test and ensure compliance.

    This is an exceptional opportunity for the right candidate to further develop their reputation at a firm committed to ambitious growth and where individual commercial innovation is actively encouraged.

    The role can be based in their London or Cambridgeshire offices with flexibility to work from home.

    The Candidate

You will ideally have 7+ years PQE.
