Contract type

Are you a corporate lawyer, fed up with a lack of career development coupled with a lack of genuine exposure to quality work?

If so, we are currently working with one of the largest corporate teams in the North West, which has maintained a more regional ethos when compared to its national rivals. The firm has a real strength in depth and is extremely active in terms of transactions. If you currently find yourself in a national heavyweight firm, I’m confident that you will not be disappointed by the quality of work undertaken. The work is quite broad and ranges from M&A to private equity matters.

This role is based in Manchester and is an exciting opportunity for a client facing lawyer to jump into a high quality caseload. It is thought that to be successful in the role that you will need a minimum of 2 years’ PQE.  However the firm is willing to look at potential superstars with less experience.

In order to attract the very best candidates this role offers a very competitive remuneration package as well as excellent career prospects and the opportunity to work in an open-minded, top tier firm.

VG Charles &Co does not work with every firm and prefers not to dabble in poor opportunities. We are constantly reviewing the firms with whom we work on a perpetual basis to ensure the best service for our clients. The fact we are working with this firm means that they share our ethos.

There are literally hundreds of recruiters out there all claiming to be the best – at VG CHARLES &CO we make some fairly simple and straightforward claims. We NEVER lose sight of the fact that our candidates and clients are people and not commodities. We are in recruitment because we want to improve lives not just change them for the sake of it. We are here for the long haul and hope to be able to advise you not just over months but over years.

We are staffed by lawyers and non-lawyers alike all sharing our passion to get things right and all having gone through rigorous training and development to ensure we are always able to help and offer pragmatic and non-patronising advice. We are happy to talk even when there is absolutely no chance of a fee as we think that is the right thing to do.

We aim to give all of our candidates an edge by giving them every legitimate help that we can – to ensure that in the current competitive environment our candidates are the best prepared and researched. Having been established for nearly a decade we are proud to have staff with a wealth of experience in top end legal recruitment which helped countless candidates through the recession of the early ‘90s. All of them genuinely care about the people they represent.

This is a cross section of some of the comments we have received:

“Andrew was a pleasure to deal with completely professional from start to finish. He has been supportive, encouraging and did not attempt to pressure me in any way. I would not hesitate in recommending him to my colleagues and peers. Many thanks for your help!”

“Andrew has been great and really proactive- No time wasted! Thank you again for all your help.”

“His personable manner and professionalism made me feel comfortable in a scenario which I had not experienced previously. Andrew’s understanding of the target firm and my career level allowed him to support the transaction from an informed position. I certainly owe Andrew a beer!”
