What You Will Bring

Suitable candidates will have the following:

· Experience working as a PSL (although applications from those without prior PSL expertise are also welcome)

· Qualified as a lawyer in the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand or Canada (and/or another offshore legal jurisdiction)

· Enthusiasm for developing knowledge systems, improving access and understanding amongst peers

· Excellent verbal and written communication skills

On offer is a highly desirable tax free compensation package, including base salary, bonus, healthcare and relocation costs.  The office culture is very open and flexible, offering hybrid working and/or a 4 day week if desired.  Furthermore, life outside of the office in the Cayman Islands is second-to-none, surrounded by azure blue waters, white sand beaches and plenty of cafes, bars, shops and restaurants to choose between!
