We are looking to recruit a junior solicitor, ideally, with 0-2 years of experience in banking, capital markets or another form of transactional finance, to join our friendly, supportive and market-leading social finance and impact investing team. Please click here for a copy of the solicitor job description.
BWB is widely regarded as a pioneering firm, with a strategic commercial approach characterised by a willingness and ability to challenge and innovate.
We act for an impressive range of clients including multi-nationals, social enterprises, household name charities and public bodies.
The first UK law firm to be certified as a B Corporation, we exist not only for profit but also to make a material positive impact on society and the environment.
You will have exposure to a wide range of charities, social enterprises and commercial businesses seeking to have a positive impact. You will also have the opportunity to work on a mixture of advisory and transactional work at the more complex and commercial end of the charity and social enterprise spectrum.
In particular, you will be involved in advising clients on transactions where the aim is to generate both a financial return and some form of social impact. Many of these transactions will be UK-focused but your work may also involve helping to grow our presence in development finance and emerging markets.
Day-to-day, your role will primarily involve providing junior support to two senior associates in the team, though there will be opportunities to work with other members of the team and of the Charity & Social Enterprise department more generally.
