Our client is the small London office of a well established international bank with a large presence in Asia-Pac. In line with business growth they are looking to hire a junior to mid-level lawyer with Chinese language skills to undertake a very broad in-house legal role.
Working very closely with the business in the close-knit London office and further afield, this varied position will encompass negotiating commercial contracts globally, advising on financial services regulatory matters as well as playing a key role in major projects across the bank.
The ideal candidate will be a team player with strong interpersonal skills, able to take the initiative and work well under pressure. Prior exposure to the financial services sector would benefit your application but most important is the ability to speak business level Chinese coupled with a commercial, pragmatic approach.
