HFW is a market-leading law firm with a longstanding presence in Asia. In Singapore, the office has particular capabilities, across the breadth of legal services, in these core sectors:
Energy & Resources
The firm culture is very down to earth, with partners appreciative of hard work, enthusiasm and proactive solutions. This is an opportunity to make your mark!
The Marketing & BD team
It's an exciting time to join; the M&BD team has grown significantly in recent years and we are working hard to be true advisors to the business.
The Role in brief
The M&BD Senior Executive will primarily support HFW's South East Asia practice, i.e. working with Singapore and offering remote support to Jakarta, while also working with the wider Asia and Global teams on relevant projects, across the full spectrum of legal M&BD work.
The role reports into the Head of M&BD for Asia, based in HK, and you would work very closely with the M&BD Executive in Singapore and HK-based team members.
Attention to detail, strong English language drafting skills and an interest in learning about HFW's business are critical. The successful candidate will be proactive in learning about the firm's business and industries of work, to better drive business and client development objectives.
As the M&BD Senior Executive would be the most senior team member based in the Singapore office, this is very much a partner-facing role and therefore the post holder is expected to demonstrate autonomy and influence, moving beyond simply executing, in order to offer best practice guidance.
