We have been instructed by a leading alternative investment manager to search for a high calibre paralegal to join their team in London.

The successful candidate will provide support in relation to a variety of legal issues including the coordination and exection of various trading documentation (e.g. ISDA, Prime Brokerage, Futures, GMRA, GMSLA), and ensuring compliance with applicable regulations (e.g. Dodd-Frank and EMIR).

Although professional experience in a relevant area such as derivatives, trading documentation, regulatory or funds law would be beneficial, our client is open to considering applicants from other backgrounds provided they have a genuine interest in the asset management space and have the aptitude and drive to pick things up quickly.

This company has in the past offered training contracts to individuals who have excelled in paralegal roles, although please note that this is at their absolute discretion and the successful candidate would have to prove themselves over a period of time before possibly being considered for a training contract without any guarantees.

The ideal candidate will have:

  • Strong A-Levels (ideally 320+ UCAS points from top 3 A2 Levels)
  • 2:1 or First Class Degree from a top university (preferably Russell Group / red brick establishment)
  • 0-3 years' work experience in a related field (e.g. legal or financial services internships)

To find out more, please express your interest via this page.

Due to the volume of applications we receive for each role it is not possible to respond on an individual basis so if you have not heard back within 2 weeks then unfortunately your application has been unsuccessful.
