You will need an appetite for developing knowledge, networks, and skills in a fast-paced and collaborative working environment.

This is a full-time, six month fixed-term contract role based in London but with a mix of remote working given the ongoing impact of covid-19 on office-based work. Salary and other benefits are competitive and dependent on experience.

Although this is a fixed-term contract, Global Counsel is a growing company and is open to discussing a permanent role upon the completion of the initial term with the right candidate.
