About you

You might be a salaried partner looking for greater freedom or more responsibility in your role, or an experienced lawyer looking for your first move into a senior position. Either way, you will have significant experience in corporate transactional and commercial work (10 years or more PQE).

Ideally you will have a Cambridge following and strong network within the local area.  However, we would be interested in hearing from talented individuals from outside the region who may be looking to move to the area, or who would be willing to relocate or commute for the position.

Cambridge is a strong focus for us as a firm when it comes to business development. As such, you will have a proven track record in winning new clients and forming long-standing relationships.

We expect everyone at Greenwoods GRM to work together for the benefit of the firm, and so you will be a great team player, supportive of cross referrals and our collective success.

At Greenwoods GRM, we strongly believe that people are our greatest asset. You will have demonstrable people leadership skills with some experience of people management and a keen interest in developing yourself as a leader.  This includes the ability to delegate varied and interesting work to your direct report(s) and wider team, in support of their own career progression.

As one of the most senior people in our Cambridge office you will be confident yet approachable. You will work closely with the senior management team to build a supportive and engaging work environment for you and your colleagues.

We focus our time on high quality work and a great client experience. As such, strong organisational skills and an understanding of project management are essential to ensure we continually challenge our ways of working.

About us

For the right candidate, we offer you the chance to build your role around your strengths and to be part of a progressive and commercially successful firm.  As one of the most profitable firms in the region we offer high profile clients, interesting work and the freedom to develop your own practice area.

As a firm, we demonstrate a strong commitment to work life balance at all levels, through giving you the flexibility and trust to allow you to work in a way that compliments your life outside of work.
