The Role
This top tier international firm are looking to recruit bright and personable corporate associates (within Manchester, the surrounding areas and those looking to relocate) at all levels due to an extremely strong financial performance throughout the pandemic and a healthy increase in new instructions.
This is a high performing, cohesive and busy team with excellent prospects for career development for the right person.  Depending on your level of experience you will handle your own matters (with supervision if necessary) and assist the Partners and Managing Associates on more complex matters.  We have a diverse client base acting for fast growing business owners, private equity institutions, large corporates and public transactions.  We are the only firm in Manchester that can provide fully diverse client and work type opportunities and we have a very strong reputation for providing Associates with early levels of responsibility within a supportive, stretching environment.

The Firm
We stand out for being consistently excellent in advice: we not only provide technical excellence and experience but crucially, we also demonstrate real insight into our clients and what really matters to them. Our knowledge of our chosen sectors and markets, and our investment in our client relationships set us apart. We are a natural choice for FTSE100 and other "bold and beautiful" clients.

It provides a full-service offering and includes transactional experience across M&A, Equity Capital Markets, Public Company Takeovers, Private Equity, Structured Real Estate and Professional Practices.

Knowledge, skills and experience required
Suitable candidates will have strong academics and will have gained their experience in a corporate transactional role in order to have acquired the range of skills and expertise required for the position. This experience should probably have been gained in a major national, international, City or regional firm.
Along with excellent communication skills, we are seeking candidates with a good grounding in the basic elements of corporate law, a willingness to learn and develop commercial awareness, good social skills and plenty of drive and enthusiasm to help us to provide an excellent client service. In addition to this you should be able to demonstrate you are able to work as part of a team in a fast-paced, challenging environment, where you will be required to meet tight deadlines.
As well as the above skills and competencies required, you will have:
·      excellent academic achievement with good A levels and ideally a 2:1 degree;

·      broad corporate experience gained at a reputable firm; and
