As part of our offshore expansion plans and as a result of recent engagement-driven demand, an exciting opportunity has arisen within the firm, for an Assistant Manager to join our British Virgin Islands (“BVI”) office.

Being part of a small team, you will experience a high level of exposure and involvement on cases, as well as being expected to fully commit to work demands when these arise.

The BVI is a regulated tax-efficient offshore jurisdiction, with approximately 400,000 incorporated companies and structures.

The mix of work within the BVI office includes;

  • Solvent member voluntary liquidations
  • Shareholder appointed insolvent liquidations
  • Court appointed insolvent liquidations
  • Court appointed receiverships
  • Restructuring advisory related engagements
  • Engagements frequently feature; forensic, asset-tracing & litigation-support components

Typical work-providers include:

  • Offshore and onshore law firms
  • Registered agent/trust companies
  • Global banks
  • Restructuring & insolvency boutiques (without BVI coverage)

Due to the nature of the stakeholders and typical uses of BVI companies, the jurisdictions where assignments will typically interface, or originate from, include:

  • Cyprus
  • Russia 
  • Ukraine
  • APAC region, with focus on; Hong Kong, China & Singapore
  • United Kingdom

The scope and exposure of the role will include:

The BVI is a small island in the Eastern Caribbean with a population of approximately 28,000.  The core industries within the territory include financial services, offshore company incorporations and tourism.

With the close but modest sized team, and dynamics of the jurisdiction, this is an exciting opportunity to join a growing team, and to become fully immersed in all aspects of international cases and business development/client engagement. Employees within the jurisdiction also benefit from low rates of income tax.

The territory has a friendly and inclusive expat leisure culture, where a day away island-hopping on the high seas with friends, a relaxing evening in many bars and restaurants, a work-out in the thriving keep-fit community, as well as participating in local charitable organisations are all possible. All this, coupled with a likely less than 20-minute commute to the office!

Candidates should exhibit the following qualifications and experience, as well as attributes which align with the scope of role as set out above:

  • Degree educated
  • Qualified Accountant, Legal and/or insolvency related qualification would be a significant advantage
  • Minimum of 3 years post-graduate work experience
  • Experience in insolvency engagements. Those candidates with existing offshore or cross-border contentious insolvency experience will be viewed favourably, as will those with experience in working closely with legal advisors

Whilst the role is for Assistant Manager grade, those candidates at an experienced Senior Administrator level, who are ready to make the next step-up in their career will also be considered.
