Corporate Immigration Solicitor - London Job Type: 12 month Fixed Term Contract Location: London Salary: £Negotiable (Pro Rata) Ref No: AS/67163/IM The Background: We are currently looking to recruit an experienced Corporate Immigration Lawyer, to join the London office for an initial 12-month fixed-term. Whilst we are flexible on PQE level, we envisage that the skills and experience required by the role will most likely be held by a lawyer with 5 years+ PQE. The Role: The successful candidate will ideally have gained 5 years diverse UK corporate immigration law experience in either a large commercial firm, or an immigration boutique firm, building up market knowledge and contacts and with specific experience of dealing with: * sponsor licence applications and compliance (including compliance audits); * the sponsorship management system; * immigration obligations triggered in corporate transactions and exercises; * sponsorship and visa applications under all Tiers of the Points Based System (including sponsorship under Tiers 4 and 5); * European free movement rights, related applications and providing Brexit planning support; * settlement and citizenship applications; * preparing and delivering immigration compliance training to clients; * liaising with the Home Office; * visa applications for representatives of overseas businesses; and * the prevention of illegal working (including advising on and responding to enforcement action). The Person: The Corporate Immigration Team deals with the full spectrum of corporate queries, including complex strategic immigration advice. Accordingly, this is not a role purely focused on sponsorship and visa applications - the candidate must be experienced in and prepared to deal with a wide range of corporate immigration matters for our clients (both public and private sector).The candidate should have experience of working cross border to support global mobility functions. The role will be focused on supporting our corporate clients (with few exceptions), as we generally do not advise individuals. Experience of advising on related employment risks in immigration situations, including unfair dismissal and discrimination claims, and immigration litigation would be valuable but not essential. The successful candidate will have a strong academic background and an outgoing personality. They must be technically excellent but equally important, commercially aware and enthusiastic about business development. A key aspect of this role is working with the Corporate Immigration team heads to further develop our presence and practice within our London office and the wider London market. Accordingly, business development experience will be essential - with a proven track record for managing client relationships and independently securing new clients and work. The candidate will be expected to be proactive and keen to develop our London practice. The candidate must be a team player and will be expected to supervise and train more junior members of the team, providing appropriate support and technical guidance to them. Experience of this will be essential. Equally, the candidate must be capable of working independently, with limited remote supervision. This role will be our first London-based member of the Corporate Immigration Team. Given the exposure to senior City clients, the candidate will be confident dealing directly with senior individuals. They will also be organised with excellent communication skills and a systematic approach to business development. APPLY NOW To apply please send your CV to Andy Shaw via the 'apply now' button.
