Legal Jobs | London

Thinking about a career move? Are you wanting to travel, or just looking for something new? Why not use your Australian or New Zealand experience to get a legal job in London? It’s a great time for Australian or New Zealand qualified lawyers looking for a legal career in London.

  • Earn excellent £££ pa
  • Develop your existing skillset
  • Travel abroad on the weekend

Australian and New Zealand qualified lawyers are held in high-regard in London. At a time when the UK job market is recovering strongly and travel restrictions are being removed, Aussies and Kiwis in London have become increasingly scarce.

As a result, demand is at a record high and supply at a record low, which means there has never been a better time to be an Australian or New Zealand qualified lawyer looking for a legal job in London.

Interested? To help you make the move, we have teamed up with leading UK legal recruiters that specialise in helping lawyers from Australia and New Zealand find jobs in London.

We get you ready for the move, set up interviews before you go, and help you through the interview process. Our UK-based partners will get you a job when you arrive.

What You Will Need

To make the move, you must qualify for the UK Youth Mobility visa, UK Ancestry visa or be a UK citizen to work in London. Unfortunately, we can’t help if you are not eligible. 

You will also need to be an Australian or New Zealand qualified lawyer with 2+ years post-admission work experience. Depending on your area of specialism, experience in one or more of the below will also be helpful:

  • Banking
  • Corporate M&A
  • Leveraged finance
  • Capital markets
  • Structured finance
  • DCM (debt capital markets)
  • ECM (equity capital markets)
  • Construction (litigation & non-contentious)
  • Commercial and financial services litigation

Less than two years post admission experience? Paralegal or document review work is a great stepping stone into magic circle firms. Contact us.
