Job Details


NQ-8yrsPQE Lawyers required for Banking and Financial Services work in a Big Four brand, working anywhere in the UK as you can be engaged up to 90% digitally and be networked to colleagues.

You'd be joining a tech-led brand which acts for some of the largest financial institutions in the world addressing their legal needs internationally. The work will span a range of projects and will be interesting, but without the usual extreme hours associated with private practice.

Transactional banking experience will definitely be considered, but the team handles a wide range of financial services legal documents including structured finance, derivatives documentation and key fund documentation, so there's a strong element of more specialist London work.

Financial Services regulatory matters are also a core focus including IBOR Transition, MiFID II, EMIR and other regulatory requirements as applicable to banks, insurers, funds and asset managers.

For candidates coming from a regional background there'd be a period of adjustment and upskilling which this business is quite prepared for. City candidates and perhaps those who've been in-house with a bank or fund will probably find the work more familiar, though the focus is very much on leveraging technology for the benefit of the client.

Suitable candidates will need to want to be operating in a fast moving, innovative and technology enabled environment, and need a desire to be part of the movement to modernise the delivery of legal services. It's a differet way of thinking and a different way of working, but banking lawyers looking for something different are encouraged to apply.

Brooke Thornham Consulting advertisements use PQE levels purely as a guide to the level of experience required for the role and this does not prohibit applications from candidates who are able to demonstrate the necessary skills and experience. We aim to respond to enquiries as soon as possible but if we have not contacted you within 5 days then unfortunately on this occasion your application has not quite met the requirements of our client closely enough.


Brooke Thornham Consulting is a legal recruitment business established in April 2018 as a partial continuation of a previous brand which had enjoyed a successful 10 years of trading from 2007 and built a stellar reputation. With offices in Leeds, we specialise in the recruitment of Solicitors from Newly Qualified through to Partner level, and our focus is on the commercial market.

We are well networked with clients in the north of England where we serve an enviable client list encompassing Top 20 national brands and also regional practices and boutique firms. Our trade mark is our pragmatism, and trying to offer value at every opportunity.

We believe that when you give more, you get more. That’s why we’re generous with our time and expertise, and why we go out of our way to understand you, share our knowledge and add something extra – every time you work with us.

We’re experts in our field – and we get results. But over time, we develop something even more important: the intuitive understanding that really special relationships are built on.
