The career you want without compromise
Maybe you want to do what you love but in a different way. Maybe you are keen to try a new path. Whatever your individual needs or ambitions, the one thing that every Peerpoint consultant wants, and gets, is reassurance. The certain knowledge that you can access high-level client work, supported by a global network of resources and expertise, with the opportunity to keep choosing what you do next. We only take you on when we see a demand for your particular expertise, making sure there is a good chance we can provide you with work on an on-going basis. We cannot guarantee work but we are every bit as invested in moving your career forward as you are.
We are currently seeing an increased demand for Securitisation lawyers to work on assignments with our clients which include the major financial instiutions and A&O's leading securitisation practice.
More variety. More control.
There really is no limit to the diversity of high-level work open to you.
Client assignments can range from stepping into a team to support a project to taking on a senior manager role working on major transactions.
Assignments are usually at least six months in duration and tend to require you work a minimum of four days per week.
