TAX FREE – Law Firm Practice Manager Opportunity – Relocate to the Middle East with a Leading Firm

Duke and Rawson are working exclusively on a unique opportunity for an experienced Practice Manager from within a professional services organisation, or indeed a senior lawyer with a history of law firm management experience looking for a new and exciting challenge, to lead this law firm through an exciting phase of growth and development.

This firm is one of the leading players in the Middle East and the scope of its instructions is on an international scale.  The firm’s lawyers are respected and prominent figures in their respective markets and the firm is headed by an inspirational managing partner together with a visionary management team.

The successful candidate will report to the equity partners, and will have responsibility to oversee the entire legal and support staff of the firm.

You will also have responsibility for the firm’s day-to-day administration and to act as the focal point for all support functions as part of the management team.  Crucially, you will play a key role in the future development of the firm, and manage a variety of responsibilities such as HR, recruitment, staff management, internal and external compliance and risk management, facilities management, as well as developing operating processes and improving the efficiency of the firm's overall operation.

The successful candidate will also be an ambassador both internally and externally for the firm, be involved in marketing activities, and facilitate the development and implementation of a business plan for each team.  You will also subsequently monitor the progress of the firm and its individual lawyers to ensure the ambitions of the leadership team are being met.

The ideal candidate will come from an experienced Practice Manger background, through which valuable transferable experience would have been accumulated for a successful transfer into this position. 

The firm does, however, remain open-minded, and for a current or former practising lawyer with a track record of leadership and operational responsibility, there is also a potential opportunity to carve out a unique position in this role, which for those interested would offer the prospect of also assisting on discrete fee earning matters, where the matters are of strategic significance for the firm.

A highly attractive financial package including (but not limited to) relocation, housing, and travel will be offered, with the entire remuneration being tax free.
