Application Deadline: 24/12/2017
The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is currently recruiting for its Legal Service. We are interested in meeting lawyers with at least eight years of relevant work experience.
You will join a small team of lawyers responsible for advising on a large variety of legal issues relating to the Bank's operations and governance. This includes the Bank's status as an international organisation in Switzerland, its relationship with its host country, employment-related matters as well as a wide range of contractual issues with suppliers and other third parties.
You have a law degree from a recognised university in a civil law jurisdiction and have worked in a top law firm or in the legal department of a large corporate, an international organisation or a central bank. You have excellent spoken and written English. A good command of French or German, as well as knowledge of public international law, would be an advantage.
The BIS employs staff on both open-ended and fixed-term contracts. However, all new entrants are initially recruited on a fixed-term basis. The BIS is fully committed to equal opportunity employment and strives for diversity among its staff. Against this background, we encourage applications from female candidates.
