Nord Anglia Education is the world's leading premium international school's organisation with 61 international schools located in China, Europe, Middle East, Southeast Asia and the Americas, with the ambition to grow to 100 schools and 100,000 students by 2022. Together, they educate more than 61,000 students from kindergarten through to the end of secondary education today. We are driven by one unifying philosophy: we are ambitious for our students, our people and our family of schools.

As part of our global reorganisation, we are relocating our central support functions from Hong Kong to our new offices in Victoria, London. As a result of this relocation we are looking to recruit a new Senior Corporate lawyer with Mandarin language skills. This is a really exciting time to join the company as we are growing rapidly and are very ambitious.

Responsibilities will include leading and managing all corporate development projects including M&A, greenfield/brownfield development and construction; handling operational matters for other group functions, relevant schools and regional offices; handling corporate legal matters e.g. board meeting and approval processes; manage and give guidance to more junior members of the team.

To be successful you must have a strong academic background and trained at a highly regarded law firm with substantial experience in M&A transactions. You will have knowledge and experience working with international laws and cross border transactions. Ideally you will have also completed an in-house secondment or currently be working in-house. English and Mandarin language skills are essential. You will have the ability to work autonomously, think strategically and creatively and communicate clearly and precisely. You must be enthusiastic, proactive, enjoy working hard and being challenged, and demonstrate sound judgment. You will be able to work in a fast paced environment and become an integral part of the Nord Anglia Education legal team. As a member of the world's leading premium schools' group you will be joining an active network of like-minded people across the world.

Please note our advertisements use PQE/salary levels purely as a guide. However we are happy to consider applications from all candidates who are able to demonstrate the skills necessary to fulfil the role.
