We have to say this is a first. Really. It's the very first time we've had the luxury of recruiting for this corporate team as they've never had a need at this level before.
They are a great National firm and they are growing. The Partners are absolutely awesome and they have built an impressive culture over the years that always allows them to attract the best talent. As a young, progressive practice they really focus on investing in their talent and ensure you really get to be involved in the big transactions, and get to act at the client interface. What’s even better is as an independent firm, there’s no need to go to the National board for sign off and authority, so when it’s time for your career to head upstairs you only need to speak to those you have been working with.
It’s a small, close knit corporate team offering genuine Partner access. It’s a genuine growth role so you’ll be learning from the best with the added camaraderie of another Senior Associate. So you really do get the lion’s share of the work. You get to work with the clients and you get to build your own profile. There’s no competing with another 5 SA’s for the same opportunities. So you can expect to be advising public and private companies and government entities in relation to mergers and acquisitions, strategic investments, joint ventures, structuring, due diligence and general corporate and business issues. The beauty here is you are not joining a team where you are last in the queue when the time comes to move up. You’re it. And you will be completely embraced as a real face of the business, building client relationships and really getting stuck into some interesting and challenging work.
The big egos don’t go down well here, so your grounded, down-to-earth personality is exactly what these guys are looking for. Your recognised quality corporate experience from a renowned (specialist, mid or top tier firm) at SA level (newly appointed or just on the cusp of) will slot in well with the calibre of the team, and you are looking to join a cohesive team where you can start to make your mark. The type of team who work together, support each other and celebrate success. Sounds like a nice change from where you are currently sitting in your cold ivory tower?
