Job Description

We are working in unusual circumstances and we appreciate that this is an unsettling time for all employees and employers, we have always believed in absolute transparency and as such we want to be clear about the status of vacancies. Some of the roles we have been working on have only very recently been placed on hold, whereas some are still live and the client has confirmed that we are to continue with our search. We will therefore indicate the status of each role clearly so that applicants are clear on the position.

This role is LIVE as recently confirmed by our client, interviews will be conducted via video calls.

Our client are looking to recruit an ambitious Lawyer to join their growing international venture capital team based in London.

The successful candidate will have 4-7 years PQE and will play a senior role in a thriving corporate and venture capital team. You will lead on core venture capital work, as well as be given the opportunity to support the wider corporate team within the firm.

As a senior member of the team, you will manage all aspects of corporate and venture capital work relevant to IP-rich, high-growth technology and life sciences companies, overseeing and developing other members of the team. The team advises clients at all stages of a company's life-cycle, and you would be expected to be as comfortable advising on early-stage company formation and pre-seed financings as you would advising on later-stage venture and growth funding rounds and exits and specifically M&A.

You will be exposed to a wide range of clients, from entrepreneurs and scientists, to seasoned and serial founders and investors in the venture capital community and mature companies. The role will also provide you the opportunity to drive forward a particular sector or area that is your passion within our clients' expanding global practice and take advantage of the exciting opportunity to be a part of strategic growth across EU, APAC and US.

Our client are keen to meet candidates who share their energy and excitement for this area of work, and have a keen interest in specialising in this increasingly central sector of the economy. 
The ideal candidate will need to show excellent academics and the benefit of a broad training in a well-regarded Corporate department.

Testimonial

'I worked with Ellie on several roles in Cambridge in 2016. These were excellent opportunities which I could not have located otherwise. Ellie prepared me extremely well for interview and clearly understood the firms and their requirements well. She really got to know me, understood my priorities and used this knowledge to help me demonstrate how my experience and interests matched the needs of these employers. Ellie was also strategically and tactically very astute. Her work secured me several interviews and I would have no hesitation in recommending her to other candidates in future.'
