With one of the busiest airports in the world and acting as the beating heart of asset finance in the APAC region, Singapore is the choice office location for many of the sector’s leading private practices.
In this thriving location, we are excited to work with a leading international practice who have exclusively retained us in their search for a Junior Aviation Finance Associate to join their Singapore office.
Our client’s growth policy has always been conservative yet steady. Their goal is to maintain a friendly and more intimate small-firm office culture whilst growing internationally. They are proud of their near-perfect Partner retention rates and high work morale. Accordingly, job openings are rare.
You will act on behalf of airlines, lessors, and banks on cutting edge aviation finance deals. Remuneration will be higher than the market average with a work/life balance commensurate with similarly prestigious legal practices in the region.
This rare and exciting opportunity is open to any solicitors at NQ to 5 years PQE that have gained experience within finance. Any experience in asset finance will be advantageous.
