Office location: Leeds

Q: What attracted you to apply for this role at Eversheds? What impression did you have of the firm before you joined?

A: My role as ‘Treasury Manager’ is a brand new role. I believed that my recent experience within Risk in Finance both in the UK and in Australia could add a lot of value to the role, and it would be an excellent step forward for my career. I have always been intrigued by ‘big law’ firms and therefore it felt a good fit. My first impression from studying the internet was – ‘WOW’, such a global presence built over such a short space of time.
