Job Description

[UPDATED 15 AUGUST 2019]

Are you a financial or business analyst with strong SQL coding skills, first rate experience of reviewing and boosting financial performance and efficiencies in a business, all with a critical eye for details, and with the capability of building and enhancing relationships across an organisation?

The pricing team of this major international law firm is tasked with developing fee models to support responses to client tender requests. Working in collaboration with partners, accounting and finance, and the business development teams, they prepare and present detailed data and viability analyses, as well as pricing forecasts to support fee proposals. Ongoing, the pricing team monitor actual performance on each case or deal projects against budgets, and give support and advice to improve financial performance and efficiencies.

The pricing team is a critical element to the firm’s financial success and profitability.

Now, an opening has become available to join a burgeoning team of this award-winning, prestigious law firm. 

Your role

As a key player in this team and reporting to the regional team lead, you will provide functional support in using the firm’s time management and budgeting tools, and train fee earners in using such tool. On individual matters, you will be working closely with partners and the BD teams to develop financial forecasts and models that will assist them in winning tenders, as well as execute pricing agreements with clients. 

Of particular interest to our client are job-seekers with a strong command and knowledge of SQL coding and Tableau, and ideally with financial or business analysis experience in a financial institution, legal or professional services firm, who have an interest in developing their career in this fast growing sector of the legal services industry.  

If you have have worked in a financial or other professional services environment (typically for the last 5-7 years) with the above-mentioned skills, a strong track record of managing multiple large scale client projects, with strong analytical and critical thinking skills, and the ability to communicate complex information in a user-friendly manner, this could be the ideal role for you. 

On offer is the opportunity to work deep within the core of a successful multi-national organisation and to work with the higher echelons of decision makers, using your influence and knowledge to steer critical daily business decisions. In particular, this role offers good, stable working hours, Monday to Friday. Strong organisational and time management skills, and the ability to work calmly and efficiently in a fast paced environment are critical to the success of this role. In addition, highly fluent and articulate communication skills in English and Chinese (Mandarin) are essential. Fluency in spoken Cantonese would be a bonus.
