This global offshore firm has an esteemed reputation in Cayman and is interested in speaking to high quality banking and finance lawyers with 3& 5 years' post-admission experience in either general banking, debt finance, fund finance, acquisition finance, structured finance, real estate finance or capital markets work. You must have gained your training and experience at a major regional, national or international firm, have a strong academic record, and be admitted either in New Zealand, Australia, the UK or Canada. You will be undertaking a broad range of finance and will enjoy significant client contact as well as an opportunity for business development and overseas travel.

Winchester Search is a boutique independent search and selection firm serving the offshore, Asian, Australian and London markets. Simon Scott, head of our offshore practice, has specialised in recruiting lawyers for offshore law firms since 2009 including working in Grand Cayman for four and a half years during this period. He is a Cambridge University graduate who initially practised as an employment lawyer before switching to legal recruitment in 1996. With over a decade's experience of the offshore market behind him, he has forged strong relationships with managing partners, heads of department and senior HR personnel at all the major offshore firms. 

There are several compelling reasons why a significant number of lawyers from the world’s leading international law firms across the globe decide every year to make a combined career and lifestyle move to Cayman, BVI and Bermuda:

Remuneration

Due to the low tax rates, you can earn as much as working for some of the highest-paying US firms in London and significantly more than working for Magic or Silver Circle firms in London, whilst -

(a)  working ​shorter and ​more predictable hours;
(b)  still being able to undertake interesting, high-value work on behalf of major blue-chip clients;
(c)  having greater client contact and opportunity for travel and business development.

Quality of life

(a)  Superb climate (average daily high temperatures range from 29C - 33C in Grand Cayman; 28C – 31C in BVI; and 20C – 30C in Bermuda). 

(b)  Much shorter commute to work (whether on foot or by bike, scooter or car).

(c)  Being able to live in close proximity to the ocean. 

(d)  Far more relaxed nature of island life. 

(e)  Extremely picturesque surroundings where there is virtually zero air pollution.

(f)  The climate lends itself to participation in sport and outdoor activities, whether water sports and activities (swimming, snorkelling, paddle-boarding, kitesurfing, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, jet-skiing, canoeing), team sports (there are leagues for football, cricket, rugby, hockey etc) or individual sports and activities (cycling, jogging, crossfit, outdoor yoga, golf, tennis).   

Ease of transition

All the islands (a) have English as their main language and (b) have a very friendly, lively and cosmopolitan expat community (circa 50% of the population in Bermuda, BVI and Cayman are expats drawn from every corner of the globe), which makes settling into island life much easier. In addition, no exams are necessary to get admitted and practise in Cayman, BVI or Bermuda.

Please note that we are only able to respond to applicants who satisfy the criteria set out in the job spec above and whom we believe will be of interest to our clients.
