This is a special opportunity – this team (which rarely hires at this level) are looking for a mid-level Associate who is looking to make the step up to Senior Associate, with full access to the Birmingham market’s most revered Corporate deal-makers, who will mentor and encourage you as you make your case for Partnership.

The Role

You will come in as a Senior Associate, playing a key role within this Firm’s Corporate Midlands team, working for leading corporates and private equity funds on a broad range of high-value mandates spanning M&A, PE investments, Capital Markets, JVs and corporate structuring/ reorganisations.

You will be given the autonomy to run transactions – but always with Partners on-hand for support – and will be expected to help manage/supervise more junior members of the team. On particularly high-value or complex matters, you will work directly alongside this team’s Partners, some of the most well-known and respected in the Birmingham corporate market.

Business development will be actively encouraged – and you will be provided with all the firm and team’s resources to ensure you can make a success of such initiatives. A keenness to network and build your own connections in the local corporate finance market will be encouraged and supported at all levels.
