Project Finance Counsel - Investment Bank

2+ PQE Project Finance Counsel – Investment Bank

ETC Search is an independent boutique consultancy solely focused on the energy, trade and commodities sectors. This perspective enables us to source the most talented corporate infrastructure professionals, with a particular emphasis on legal and compliance. 


Our client is a London headquartered investment bank and a leading financial institution in the financing of energy and infrastructure projects. This particular project finance team sits as part of a wider energy and commodities group and focuses on projects typically in emerging or frontier markets.


The successful candidate will have a hugely varied workload and the opportunity to work on the full suite of financing documents that make up a project finance transaction.

Primarily focussing on energy and infrastructure project finance, you will work on both primary, secondary and refinancing transactions. This will include, but is not limited to drafting facility agreements, security trust deeds, security documents, on-loan security documents, commitment and mandate letters.


Ideally you will have a sound knowledge of project finance transactions – trade/commodities finance is also attractive. Candidates with some experience of both will be at an advantage.

You will be Common or Civil law qualified with 2+ PQE. You should have the ability to work autonomously while working as part of a wider global legal team.

Candidates with a more transactional energy background and an enthusiasm for the energy and commodities sectors will be considered.

In-house experience on a secondment or permanent basis is a plus.
