Charities Solicitor (NQ+) Job - Bristol

Your new role
This is a rare opportunity for a newly (or soon to be) qualified to mid-level Solicitor to join a highly successful and growing Charities department at a multi-office firm, with a really interesting client base and a very supportive and friendly environment.
This role presents as an excellent opportunity for a solicitor wishing to undertake mainly transactional work within a busy team that is nationally recognised in the Education Sector. The role involves advising independent schools and commercial acquirers of education businesses and a range of roles and levels of responsibility on mergers between charities, sales and purchases, joint ventures, share and business and asset, bank lending, venture capital and private equity investments.
Non-transactional work will also be part of the workload, whether shareholder agreement and articles, company secretarial advice and support, re-organisations and related advice, corporate governance or general corporate and charity advisory work. You will lead and manage your own smaller transactions and matters under appropriate supervision, and support other team members on larger transactions and matters. You will also assist with the firm's charity and corporate teams and also work within the wider firm and will provide corporate support across the firm.

What you'll need to succeed
You do not necessarily need to have prior or extensive experience within this field but should have up to circa 3 years PQE with a genuine interest and enthusiasm in the Charities sector. September/October 2021 NQ's are encouraged to apply - you will likely have undertaken a Corporate/Commercial seat during your training contract. You should be self-disciplined and able to prioritise and manage projects, and work with other advisory teams (such as Corporate Finance advisors and accountants etc.) You will have a natural instinct towards working as a team and providing support to colleagues and will be actively encouraged to take part in networking and other marketing activities. This is a brilliant opportunity to progress your career with a first class legal firm and has real potential for the right person.

What you'll get in return
You will be working for high calibre clients in a collaborative, collegiate environment. You will be joining a firm with an excellent culture that is focused on their employees' personal development - including their distinctive lawyer career framework. Alongside a market leading salary you'll receive a generous benefits package that you can tailor to fit your needs. With both flexible and hybrid working options available, this is a great opportunity that would suit those already in the Southwest or those looking to relocate to the Southwest in the future.
