A well-established global M&BD team, which supports the firm on a wide range of business development, client relationship management and reputational activities needs a capable and enthusiastic assistant to support the M&BD team in BD and marketing activities for the Financial Practice Group for a 12 month contract - a broad remit across some fast-paced and interesting areas of law - and a great role for a junior marketing and BD assistant looking to make an impact.
