The Company

Our Client is a global financial institution market-leader who’s recognised for their expertise and corporate governance practices and culture.

 

The Position

A newly-created role has arisen within their group legal team for a lawyer to be part of their corporate services team where you’ll primarily be looking at technology and general commercial contracts. The role is key to an institution wide effort to incorporate market-leading IT best-practices into their businesses as they look to overhaul their existing vendors and suppliers. You’ll also be looking at a broad range of commercial operational legal contracts. The majority of your time will be spent looking at legal review of IT procurement contracts (software agreements and licenses, hardware purchases/leases, professional services) and other related documention.


The Person

The ideal candidate would have between 5-8 PQE with excellent academics and top-tier law firm experience and ideally, some relevant inhouse experience within the technology or financial services space covering IT procurement and related issues. This role is based in Singapore.

Upside

This is an excellent opportunity for an IT lawyer to get into the financial services space and it’s a specialisation within financial services of constant demand.

Downside

While compensation is good and there’ll always be demand for your skill-set , you have to come to terms with the fact that it’s rare for the non-financial services and banking lawyers to head up legal within financial services
