Roles at Appleby


Offshore Financial Centres (OFCs) play an integral role in international finance and trade and is more often than not at the heart of global cross-border transactions. Appleby’s presence in the world’s leading offshore locations of Bermuda, the British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Isle of Man, Mauritius, the Seychelles, and Hong Kong means that we operate in some of the most highly regulated jurisdictions in the world.

This creates opportunities for our lawyers to be involved in high profile, complex and sophisticated transactions and disputes. Appleby advises global, multi-national and local clients on corporate and commercial matters, dispute resolution matters and private trusts and property transactions. Our multi-disciplinary teams advise on Bermuda, BVI, the Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Jersey and Mauritius law.

If you possess an appropriate qualification and either have the required post qualification experience to obtain a work permit or hold local citizenship, you are invited to apply for the relevant vacancies by viewing our Positions Available. Appleby is committed to recruiting the best lawyers. If you are interested in a career offshore but don’t see a vacancy for your particular specialism, we would encourage you to submit a speculative application, highlighting your preferred choice of jurisdiction.

Business Support Roles

Appleby provides great opportunities for those wishing to develop a career in professional services. With offices around the world, the need for exceptional business support staff is critical.

Business support functions such as compliance, finance, human resources, information technology, marketing and training have teams in most of the Appleby offices, supporting the legal and teams as well as taking responsibility for global practice groups in some areas. Another key support function for the Appleby teams is knowledge management which includes professional support lawyers (PSLs) who provide a wide-ranging service of know-how, best practice and research.

All of these functions are co-ordinated globally by dedicated business support directors. The global nature of Appleby’s business means that all our business services team members are exposed to a great variety and mix of work.

Opportunities for professionals at all levels of these business support roles provide exciting challenges for those who can meet the demands of a growing and forward-thinking organisation.


Appleby employs a number of paralegals across our offices. Specialist roles exist in areas such as Intellectual Property and Trademarks as well as more traditional roles in Corporate, Dispute Resolution and Property.

Secretarial Roles

The law firm environment calls for experienced legal secretaries, familiar with the standards required by the courts, corporate clients, trusts and property work. Given the increasing computer skills of our legal teams, we often have one secretary working for two or more lawyers, assisting with document production, practice management and general organisation. Other areas of the business such as fiduciary and administration services also have requirements for top quality secretaries who can manage the workload of several fee-earners and provide a supportive and professional service.
