2. our banking practice, including in relation to acquisition finance and real estate finance, working for a wide range of borrowers and lenders; and

3. will involve significant exposure to internationally focussed work.

We are looking for candidates with either banking or funds experience and can be flexible as to the mix of work which the role will involve. The training and opportunities for personal development in the banking and funds team are second to none so a lack of experience should not put you off.
