A leading sovereign wealth fund is interested in hiring a Senior Counsel to act as the key support to the General Counsel.

The role is new and comes at an extremely exciting time, as the fund expands its interests and investments in both the region and further afield. Their investments are diverse including O&G, renewable energy, international real estate and many other industries. Applicants must have at least eight years' post qualification experience in the investment team of a reputable international law firm, or the same level of experience gained in the in-house team of an investment fund.

Whilst private equity investments is the key component of the role, experience of general corporate/M&A work would also be of interest. Experience of divesting would also be of interest.

The company and country offer a high standard of living and a supportive, welcoming culture for ex-patriates and their families.

Remuneration: £165K+ tax free plus package.
