What’s the role?

We are currently recruiting Junior Negotiators for key projects in the Financial Services sector with a Professional Services firm.

 

You will be part of a team advising FS organisations as they prepare for the transition away from LIBOR and onto SOFR (or other replacement benchmark rate).  Supporting Senior Negotiators and Contract Attorneys, the role will involve re-contracting counterparties through identifying documentation changes required by the migration away from LIBOR and, where appropriate, negotiating the required changes with the counterparty.

Rates: up to $35 per hour

Your day to day activities will include:

  • Supporting a team of Contract Attorneys
  • Reviewing existing contracts and identifying clauses that need to be updated
  • Re-pricing interest rates in line with new benchmarks and negotiating agreement with counterparties, using set templates and negotiation playbooks
  • Support a wide range of counterparties including banks, mutual, pension and hedge funds, corporates, and insurance companies.
  • Ensure the optimum reduction of risk in line with the credit and legal policies/standards of the bank.
  • Liaison with the banks’ business managers, credit officers, and legal department and external counsel.

 

What knowledge, skills and experience you need

  • Up to 1 years’ industry experience in banking, financial services, or legal sector
  • Specific experience in banking trading documents ISDA and MSFTA within the last 2-3 years
  • Law degree would be a distinct advantage
